Adult Recovery Counseling & Adult Individual Counseling (AIC)

Recovery from drug or alcohol dependence takes a decision, some time, and a willingness to apply oneself to doing the things that work to make recovery happen and for it to continue to happen over the course of a life.

So, at Joan of Arc Counseling we meet once or twice a week. I spend some time getting to know you. And you will let me know what you want to get out of the counseling process. In general terms, I want to point you toward, to encourage you toward, a decision about committing yourself to working an effective recovery program. I will do a lot of teaching about chemical dependency and recovery from it. You will likely attend some self-help support groups. Urine drug testing may be a part of your counseling process.

This takes some time. Recovery is a process, not an event. One of the elements of success is remaining in a program over time. A client might think about meeting with me over the course of 4 to 6 months.

The quality of willingness is indispensable. That is, a desire on your part to work at recovery. This may sound hard to do, but the benefits far outweigh any effort expended on your part.Finally, we may meet on an individual basis ( Adult Individual Counseling- AIC) only or you may choose to be, or it may be best for you to be, in the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), a service described in the “Program Services” link on the website.

Fees for individual counseling sessions are $80 per session. If you cannot afford that, let me know. Urine drug screens a $5 each.
