Wyndhurst Substance Abuse Counseling Center
The first step in the Substance Abuse Counseling process is to complete a comprehensive assessment to determine the extent of the problem and appropriate counseling options. Our evaluation not only includes an interview but can also use one or more research-based evaluative tools, such as the MAST, DAST, SASSI or ASI. Collateral interviews and drug screening may also be employed to further support the assessment process. If the assessment is in relation to a legal proceeding, a copy of the criminal defense history will be required and it speeds the process to bring that to the counseling appointment. Based on the results of the tests and interview, the findings of the assessment and recommendations for counseling will be explained and the patient will be given treatment referrals for that counseling.

Individual Substance Abuse Counseling
After the initial assessment individual substance abuse counseling may be recommended for those who have experienced a negative consequence of substance use. Substance abuse counseling sessions focus on the patient’s progress in the educational process, compliance, 12–Step work, and identification of areas for improvement to achieve long-term sobriety. During individual substance abuse counseling sessions may be scheduled weekly where counselors create specific programs tailored to each individual’s addiction counseling needs.
Substance Abuse Counseling Helps Develop Understanding
Addiction counselors help clients understand their addiction during the individual substance abuse counseling sessions, which are a critical part of achieving long-term recovery. During the outpatient rehab process, your body will become free of drugs and alcohol, but substance abuse counseling isn’t just about getting your body right – it’s about understanding why drugs and alcohol have such a hold over your life, and how you can change to break the addictive cycle. Substance abuse counseling can help.
Substance Abuse Counseling for Adolescents and Adults
Because addiction knows no age limits, we provide substance abuse counseling for adolescents, adults and their families. We know that substance abuse counseling is an ongoing process that helps our clients see the benefits of pursuing and maintaining a drug-free lifestyle – not only for them, but for their friends and family as well. Substance abuse counseling will help you identify the series of complex emotions that accompany the recovery process, and any confusing feelings that you may have about your achievements.
Individual and possibly family substance abuse counseling is a critical component to long-term recovery, and Wyndhurst Counseling Center is committed to helping you achieve success.
A Mandated Substance Abuse Assessment
At times, clients are mandated to have an actual “Substance Abuse Assessment.” If this is the case, the cost of a full substance abuse assessment, with written evaluation/letter for legal or employment protocol is $625.
