I gained allot from my stay. Silvia is a big asset to the counseling team and her words of encouragement are long lasting. There was 9 hours of daily meetings learning about recovery and addiction. You get what you put into it, like everything else. Up sides are a home like atmosphere, decent recovery clients. Downside was that they gave the wrong people access to the medicine cabinet and I was robbed of personal belongings that I cannot replace. The owner denied responsibility for the liability of loss. Allot of valuable counselors and interns recently left the company for which I'm sure they had good reason. The business side of the facility is not run properly which is the main reason this place rates so poorly. I wish that clients who relapse were treated differently and not given senior peer titles. Sorta goes without saying that if you lose sobriety you should have to work your way back up. Yes the clients do chores and are expected to do daily essentials but the responsibilities are shared among the house mates. I had a horrible experience with a highly reputable recovery facility in Florida so I was glad to have the living center to support me in the part of my life that was very broken. I wouldn't recommend a friend's there unless it was the last option in their journey for recovery but given that people who are serious about a sober life have hit rock bottom with no other options then by all means this place is appropriate based on my time there. I saw some graduate and some relapse. It's expected and if you don't believe that then you are fooling yourself with what the life of an addict is...I commend Silvia, Gary, Ryan, Robin, John and those to come for what is an emotionally challenging job. Most counselors in rehab are recovering addicts themselves. This is congruent in the majority of facilities of their kind.

Hello,I read the previous reviews and quite frankly Im sorry to hear that people havnt had good experiences. Usually people post a review because they are upset for one reason or another-they do it out of anger obviously. I have never posted a review before but I feel it necessary to post this time!! My son has been in 3 rehabs, 2 OP programs, 1 intervention and has lived and gotten kicked out of 2 SLEs due to his addiction. As a mother life has been a living hell. The living center has been the saving grace for our family. They care, they are terrific and my son is off the streets!! Not only that- my son is looking at becoming a counselor and for the first time feels like he has a focus to a better life WITHOUT drugs. I strongly recommend the living center. Their approach works!! I can't thank them enough! We all have our lives back...

Cory is really knowledgeable and has the compassion for clients and passion for the job that all counselors need.
Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
