A New Direction Recovery& Wellness
I found this organization to be friendly, helpful, and offered a variety of services. From anxiety to depression and chemical dependence, A New Direction Recovery provided each of those services as well as offering health and wellness classes and consultations. I wanted alternative solutions to drugs, and something other than "talk therapy". A New Direction Recovery provided additional alternatives by offering both psychotherapy as well as standard therapy, and medication as well as nutritional and herbal counseling. Thanks A New Direction Recovery with helping me with all my needs!

Since meeting Frank Clayton, I have been taught, to recognize the things in my life that needed to be addressed. How to feel the emotions that I never let myself feel. And most importantly, how to cope with all the people, "some loved, most not even liked" in my life. With the guidance and support, I've received from Frank, Clayton. I've learned to appreciate the consequences of my action's. (Before they become a detriment to my own well being).SincerelyMs, Becky, Eatmon
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.
