Individual Counseling

Personal Progress – One Person at a Time

During each week of their stay, residents of Granada House receive individual counseling to discuss drug and alcohol, medical, legal, psychological, and family histories. 

Counselors are looking for residents to progress in the following areas: 

  • Developing a program of recovery
  • Participating in group and individual therapy
  • Psychological and social progress
  • Adherence to appointments (medical, dental and other)

Acting as an advocate and role model, counselors guide residents through early methods of recovery and provide them with an opportunity to discuss parts of their lives that may be hindering their progress. 

Our counselors use the Stages of Change model to determine residents’ readiness to change maladaptive behavior. They then use Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-based interventions to encourage healthy changes. Counselors are persuasive and empathetic to residents, helping them achieve contented sobriety, and happier, more productive lives.
