Is Individual Counseling Right For Me?
There are many issues that may require one-on-one individual counseling. These include but are not limited to: anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, grief, obsession & compulsion, and maybe the most common (just unsure of what’s going on). These issues can be driven by individual thought processes, emotions, biology, and one’s experience of the world. We find that exploring a wide range of areas of our clients’ lives and thought patterns provides valuable insight into why they feel the way they do.
Another important part of the individual counseling process is realizing that we are all influenced by family, community, and our culture. If our clients feel comfortable, we can seek to explore how they are benefiting or possibly being inhibited by these influences. It is very important to us to respect the individual values and worldview of each client. This is essential to providing a safe place for one’s healing process. We are also comfortable and trained to expand individual counseling to include other key figures such as partners, family members, and children– if beneficial to the process.
You may not be able to explain what exactly it is that is bothering you– and that’s ok. Please take the time to arrange an initial session and share with us your thoughts and feelings. Allow us to help provide insight and perspective into your thoughts and concerns. Allow us to provide the quality, competent care you deserve…
Marriage & Family
If you are having issues or concerns with someone (or many people) you care about, more than likely these “issues” or “concerns” won’t go away without having this person (or these people) directly involved in the resolution. In other words, working on “self” is for “individual counseling”; working on relationships with others could call for either Marriage or Family Therapy.
CCS offers a traditional approach, as well as a spiritual or Christian approach to bringing perspective and insight into what it takes to live a healthy, loving life.
Marriage and Family Therapy is concerned with the long-term well-being of individuals and their families.
Marriage and family Therapy is short-term therapy: 12 sessions on average. Treatment provided by marriage and family therapy could initially be one-on-one and then progress to sessions with others involved in the relationship.
Marriage and family therapy has increased in prominence in the mental health field due to its brief, solution-focused treatment, its family-centered approach, and its demonstrated effectiveness.
If you are unsure of whether you need Marriage or Family Therapy, please schedule an initial session. This will allow you to share your thoughts and concerns, as well as allow us to provide insight and perspective into how we can provide the quality, competent care you deserve…

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
ASAM Level II.I
The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) will be a step down level of care option for clients who have been in the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). IOP is appropriate for clients who are at a lower risk and no longer require the full day programming that is part of PHP. Hours of operation for IOP are 9:00am to 1:45pm Monday through Friday (complete a minimum 9 to 12 hours weekly). Lunch is provided as part of the program. Clients are not followed by a psychiatrist at this level of care. However, medication management is available.
The IOP program is a structured group therapy program designed for adults, ages 18 and above, who provides treatment for both psychiatric disorders and substance abuse disorders. The program is medically supervised and can be an appropriate alternative to inpatient treatment, or can provide a transition from inpatient care to outpatient care. Treatment is delivered in a minimum 16-week intensive outpatient program primarily in structured group sessions targeting the skills needed in early recovery and for relapse prevention.
The IOP clients are assigned a Therapist and Addiction Counselor and receive an individualized treatment plan, group therapy, relapse prevention therapy, and process and life skills based groups.
- The individual must be 18 years of age or older
- Medically stable from moderate to high use of inpatient hospitals.
- Co-occurring substance use disorder of significant duration.

- The client must be physically, emotionally, and behaviorally capable of functioning in a group setting.
In the IOP program, clients benefit from psychotherapeutic services on a 3x-4x per-week, 3-4 hour-per-day schedule. Clients are able to learn about their disorders and to obtain new coping skills. Clients in the IOP program have the opportunity to utilize the therapeutic groups to better understand problematic patterns as they maintain or reinstate life role functions and supportive connections in the community.
The Evening Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is also designed for clients experiencing psychiatric or co-occurring psychiatric and addiction disorders. The program meets Monday through Thursday from 5:30pm to 8:30p.m. to better accommodate individuals who cannot attend daytime programs as a result of employment, school or child care conflicts. Licensed clinicians make up the treatment team creating a supportive therapeutic environment offering crisis management, intensive therapy, psychodynamic and educational groups. This intensive, short-term program is also for individuals who may have an outpatient therapist and/or psychiatrist, but need a higher level of clinical support. The program addresses mental health and recovery issues through a variety of interdisciplinary modalities. Treatment is provided through comprehensive psycho-education based groups, individual counseling, and aftercare planning.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
ASAM Level II.5
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a group-focused, short-term outpatient program that provides support and treatment for adults with psychiatric disorders and/or chemical dependency diagnoses in a less restrictive environment.

Clients can return home in the evening or clients may reside at Unconditional Hope for Recovery (UHFR) Residential Transitional Housing or reside from another referred residential program.
PHP service provides intensive therapy along with education for the client and his/her family about the client’s diagnosis, treatment process, individual needs, discharge and relapse prevention plans. Clients attend Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Lunch is provided as part of the program. The PHP program will focus on three models of treatment: Individual Therapy, Group Therapy, and Family Therapy.
Comprehensive Counseling Solutions (CCS) uses a variety of evidence-based treatment approaches to move clients forward in their recovery. Our groups focus on teaching the client more about their illness (psych-education); how to relate to family and friends (Interpersonal techniques); and how to deal with the world around them (Skill Building, Boundaries, Distress Tolerance, Emotional Regulation and Safety Planning). Group topics may also include anger and stress management, conflict resolution, communication skills, codependency, relation techniques, and 12-step recovery and addiction education.

PHP Day Program Services Overview:
The Co-Occurring Disorder or Dual Diagnosis Program is for clients who have challenges with drug and/or alcohol abuse or dependency and mental health issues. Services include psychiatric evaluation, individual case management and group psychotherapy, and medication management. This program has the same admission and schedule as regular IOP.
Clients who choose to recover with us are struggling more than just an addiction to drugs and/or alcohol, as it is quite common for those coping with chemical dependency to also struggle with the symptoms of a mental health condition at the same time. At Comprehensive Counseling Solutions, we recognize the link between addiction and mental illness and have made ourselves ready, willing, and fully able to supply care for the following mental health disorders:
- Anxiety disorders
- Bipolar disorder
During the process of admissions, clients are screened for the presence of these mental health conditions if they do not report a history of suffering from such illnesses. Our admissions staff does this so that our clients can receive the most appropriate and effective care possible that will be able to meet each and every treatment need. Treatment for any existing mental health condition will be incorporated into a client’s treatment plan in addition to the other therapeutic interventions that are aimed at defeating addiction.
One of the most important parts of the addiction recovery process is maintaining a connection with a support system. The Aftercare program meets during the day Monday through Thursday 1x-2x per week or in the evenings 1x-2x per week. CCS outpatient Aftercare counseling reinforces the skills learned during treatment and helps ensure that the healing process is maintained once the client transitions to the next step in their recovery journey. CCS Aftercare Program supports a lifetime of addiction recovery and sober living.
Clients in the step down process in this program will:
- Learn how to avoid contact with drug and alcohol addiction “triggers”.
- Stay connected with their sober living sponsor, supportive peers, and various addiction groups outside of CCS.
- Refine the skills needed to deal with substance abuse.
- Develop a customized plan that may include family counseling and other resource referrals.
CCS Aftercare groups are an invaluable resource for those beginning the road to recovery. Aftercare meetings with fellow alumni provide essential support through shared experiences, strength and hope of peers.
