One of the most common reasons for not attending any form of counseling is the fear of being judged. At The Transition House, we strive to create an open and non-judgmental environment where everyone feels welcome. The following letter is from an anonymous client sharing about their time in substance abuse counseling.
I have been fortunate enough to have attended groups led by both Felipe and Cedric. Each counselor conducts their groups very differently but very effectively. I don’t know that I can make suggestions as to do things better in as much as I believe both counselors provide an open, safe environment where the group members have the ability to interact with each other as well as the counselors without judgment. Each counselor has provided a plethora of information, suggestions, and options for each group member to consider when proceeding with a drug free lifestyle; ultimately, it is up to each individual group member to interpret on their own how this information can be used to prevent a relapse. I, personally, am grateful for the time given by Felipe and Cedric and for the knowledge I have gained from them as well as other group members.
The treatment allows everyone to freely express themselves without being judged. The counselors care for everyone and push them to be the best they can give. The payments aren’t bad if the person is financially stable. The instructors make the class very comfortable to be in and say things how they are. My experience was excellent. I have nothing bad to say.
