how we help

Therapy & counseling

Addiction is a complex illness that greatly impacts both your physical and mental health. While cravings and withdrawal affect the body, addiction’s emotional burden takes a toll on the mind. It calls for a comprehensive and balanced treatment plan that answers your health concerns and restores every aspect of your wellness.

Benefits of therapy & counseling

Our goal is to prepare you for a life free from the harmful effects of substance misuse and put you on the path to long-term recovery. The therapy and counseling programs at Eleanor Health can teach you how to change your behavior related to drugs and alcohol. As valuable allies throughout your treatment, our knowledgeable and trustworthy mental health professionals are here to listen to you, understand your perspective, and work with you to improve your mental health. Using evidence-based treatment approaches, we can help you by coming up with ways to solve problems and teach you how to cope with any difficulties you face. You’ll also learn how to recognize and work through triggers that negatively affect your recovery, including stressful experiences and harmful relationships. Over time, therapy can help you feel stronger in the face of challenges and build up your self-confidence.

Individual therapy

Individual therapy provides one-on-one sessions, either in-person or through video chat, between you and a licensed Eleanor Health clinical social worker or addiction counselor. Their role is to act as a good listener and provide you with unbiased and compassionate emotional support. They will help you address the areas of your life impacted by addiction, such as:
  • Family or relationship issues
  • Past trauma or harmful experiences
  • Work-related stress or problems
  • Medical issues
  • Grief or loss

Group counseling

Group counseling provides you with an opportunity to learn from and support other people facing similar struggles with addiction. Therapy in a group setting can help you realize that you’re not alone in your recovery. With guidance from Eleanor Health’s mental health professionals, you will encourage and motivate each other by offering assistance, feedback, and problem-solving advice.

Family & couples therapy

Addiction occurs in all types of families and couples and has emotional impacts on spouses, children, and other loved ones. Our family and couples therapy sessions provide an outlet for everyone to discuss their feelings and heal together with the support of our licensed therapists.

Care that works for you

All medication-assisted treatment services can be delivered in-person at one of our many locations or virtually from the comfort of your own home.

Dual-diagnosis therapy and counseling

If you experience addiction and other mental health conditions at the same time, known as a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis, therapy and counseling can address how your addiction and mental health disorders impact each other to help provide healing for long-term recovery. Common co-occurring mental health conditions include:
  • Anxiety
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
