Individual counseling, also known as one-on-one counseling, provides a place for you to feel safe and secure for you to begin your recovery journey.
Your counselor or therapist will first complete an assessment, which gives him or her a great deal of information in order to design a treatment plan especially for you. The counselor then develops a treatment plan, which is like a guide. It contains a list of problems and a list of goals. The counselor then reviews this with you to make sure you agree. The counseling then focuses on helping you to achieve these goals. Periodically, your counselor will review this plan with other counselors at Novus, to get another perspective. This team approach to treatment helps ensure we provide a high quality of service.
