Counseling

Counseling focuses on assisting persons to explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with an emphasis on enhancing their quality of life.

Community Support Services provides individual and group therapies as part of the continuum of recovery. The counselor assists the individual to establish goals to provide a path toward positive change.

Any person receiving services from the agency may be referred for individual and/or group counseling. Any member of your treatment team may refer you to counseling services at Community Support Services.

Participation in a counseling group can be beneficial as you will learn from other group participants while also participating in counseling.
