Alcohol and Drug Treatment
We believe people need to be treated as individuals and, as such, we avoid a “one size fits all” approach. Our individually-tailored treatment programs help clients embrace their circumstances so they can begin to accept and address what is causing their reliance on drugs and alcohol.
Adolescent and Child Therapy
Children and adolescents deal with their own unique stresses and challenges at home, in school, and in their peer groups. Working to find a balance between their own individuals needs and desires and the needs of their parents, family members, teachers, and peers, the pressure can be tremendous. The support and security fostered through therapy can provide an outlet for young people to overcome life’s early challenges.
Couples counseling and marriage counseling are terms used to describe conjoint therapy. Couples therapy generally describes a couple in a relationship and marriage counseling describes individuals who are in a legally committed relationship. While each couple is unique, common problems that bring couples to therapy include premarital counseling, recurring personal issues experienced in previous relationships, a persistent argument with no resolution, unhappiness about sex, life transitions, arguments involving day-to-day life, and physical/mental health issues impacting the relationship.
Psychotherapy, mental health counseling, and individual counseling are terms used to describe when an individual seeks help in a private setting. Individual counseling at Eastside Center for Family is offered to clients who would benefit from individual attention and opportunities to work through issues privately. The decision to see a therapist typically occurs when an issue has become disruptive and uncomfortable enough that people recognize professional and therapeutic input would be valuable in moving forward.
Family Therapy & Education
Gathering family members together can be a difficult process. Families are resilient, complex and adept at devising ways to cope. We all want to feel balanced and to have our loved ones be happy and thrive. A family is like an historic building, over time many things can weaken it to the point of collapse. When something threatens a family’s ability to effectively cope, it may be a signal that the family has reached their capacity to help themselves. We help families rebuild their foundation and a provide a basis for developing a strong identity as they go about the job of helping each other grow and thrive.
