Counseling Groups - 1.5 hours each

Counseling groups are a counselor facilitated group meeting in which participants meet to exchange ideas, to discuss their own behavior and attitudes, and to support and encourage positive changes in each other's lifestyle to facilitate resolution of problems related to the use of alcohol and other drugs. These sessions provide an opportunity for the participant to examine his own behavior and personal attitudes and provide support for positive changes. The group is conducted in a manner that encourages the participant to share ideas and information so the participant may identify and resolve alcohol/drug related problems. The groups are less structured in nature and can include topics as described in the attached curriculum.
