Addiction: A chronic, progressive, & unless treated, fatal disease that effects many: 1 in every 8 people is alcohol &/or drug addicted and 1 in every 4 people is the child of an alcoholic/addict. Alcoholism & Drug Addiction is an equal opportunity employer, effecting all races, religions & socio-economic groups.
Willow Tree Counseling Associates specialize in counseling for alcohol, tobacco & drug use disorders and mental health issues as co-occurring disorders. The good news is that with help, people can & do recover!
This is an intensive interview process to rule an addiction in or out, determine the stage of the addiction, and identify the level of care needed. The goal of an effective assessment is to make the RIGHT placement(s) providing the RIGHT: services, amount, intensity level, structure & support, time, place, people, price — all to achieve the right outcomes — recovery!
We provide a warm & welcoming environment for one on one motivational, personal growth and relapse prevention counseling; referrals to in-patient programs when the level of care needed is greater than we provide. We also offer personal linkages to AA & other self-help groups. Out-patient Counseling includes individual and group sessions and ranges from 1 to 8 hours per week, depending on individual needs.
Couple & family counseling
A family or couple is any grouping of people who consider themselves as such. Frequently, families identify one person as “the problem” and want that person “fixed.” More often, it makes greater sense to work with the whole family rather than just the individual. That is because dysfunction rarely occurs in a vacuum. With addiction, the whole family is effected & must be part of the recovery process. (see Family Interventions below)
A Family Intervention is a highly effective and intensive process designed to help family, friends, and employers to motivate those they care about — those in denial of their addiction — to seek treatment for their dependency. Family interventions are also designed to help those around the addict to become healthier by discontinuing enabling behaviors that allow the addiction to continue and flourish.
