What an Alcohol and Drug Counselor Can Do For You

What can an addictions treatment counselor do for you? What can they do for someone you care about? Is this something that you have wondered about?

A counselor is someone who has gone through extensive schooling and has followed the processes of registering, certifying, and qualifying to be able to be called a certified addictions treatment counselor. They have experience in this field and are usually very passionate about helping those who are suffering with the disease of alcoholism and addiction.

They can help build relationships with you or a loved one and help to create problem solving skills to resolve problems and adjust attitudes and perceptions. Many methods may be used - including cognitive behavioral, expressive and creative arts, guided imagery, and relational therapy.

A client deserves to know that they are receiving the best possible assistance and care when they are admitted into an in-patient drug rehab program. The counselors at Creative Care in Malibu have standards based on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and recovery and all of them are certified with extensive experience dealing with addiction, alcoholism, and other companion disorders.
