Restore Counseling & Recovery offers professional services designed to provide the most effective care for you and those you love. Our services include:
Restore Counseling & Recovery is committed to restoring balance in one’s life, emotionally, physically and spiritually. In individual therapy, clients meet with a mental health professional typically every 7-10 days to explore problematic patterns of behavior, emotional distress and to identify desired changes. Typical areas of concern are emotional well-being, managing stress at home and at work, relationship and family issues, and making desired changes in behavior.
Children or adolescents meet on a regular basis with a mental health professional to explore, at an age-appropriate level, their feelings, behaviors, coping strategies, and relationships. Parents, siblings and other adults are a critical part of successful therapy for children. Therefore, recommended treatment typically includes close involvement of the family and significant others.
Developing more meaningful relationships is a core value in Restore Counseling & Recovery’s mission statement. Many times, depression and anxiety is rooted in the interaction of the relationship, and therefore it may be essential to work with a client and spouse/significant other, or a client and another family member(s) in sessions together, to best understand and improve the relationship dynamics. Clients who are working on couples’ issues or in family interactions sometimes choose to participate in individual therapy as well, in order to change patterns of behavior that are problematic for the relationship.
Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Treatment (AODA)
Restore Counseling & Recovery has a primary commitment in its mission to countering and healing the effects of substance abuse and addiction on individuals and those whom they love. For adult clients, treatment begins with an initial assessment. Clients work with certified clinical alcohol or other drug abuse counselors to explore the role of substance use in their life, understand the effects of substance abuse or dependence, increase motivation to change, develop relapse prevention strategies, and implement desired changes. Programming is available to fit the individual needs of the client, such as short-term outpatient, primary outpatient, intensive outpatient, and relapse prevention training. Adolescent programming is also available, but individualized in its programming. Adolescent AODA interventions are inclusive of psychoeducation sessions and individual & family therapy.
Therapy groups are usually organized around a particular issue. Examples would be men and women’s wellness, mindfulness and relaxation, or mastering anxiety. Group therapy provides an additional level of support and intervention by bringing together people who are working on similar issues to make positive changes and to restore balance within their life.
Life coaching for specific issues
Coaching is a professional service not traditionally associated with mental health diagnoses. Coaching provides assistance with life issues. For example, a mental health professional may provide coaching or child specialist services for clients in need of divorce mediation, or to achieve a better balance in one’s life, or in negotiating matters effecting the family due to conflicts of faith.
Families are not the only system of relationships that are prone to difficulties. Businesses, churches and other organizations can struggle when members have difficulty communicating. Organizational focuses that pull a company and its resources in multiple directions, can divide company unity and blur their true mission. Therapists at Restore Counseling & Recovery have the experience to assist groups in improving communication and building a more cohesive team.
Some of the clinical staff at Restore Counseling & Recovery share their Christian faith as the Good News by which to direct life and restore balance. Several counselors have training in integrating Christian spiritual formation with the principles of counseling. Since faith is an essential part of many people’s lives, it makes sense to make it part of the healing process as well, when it is appropriate and desired by the client. (If you do not wish to explore faith issues, you will not receive any pressure to discuss or share Christian faith or values with your counselor.)
The clinical staff members of Restore Counseling & Recovery provide presentations to the public throughout the year on mental health issues. If your group would like information on a mental health presentation, please call Tom Mlodzik, LCSW, LMFT at our main number: 815-708-7392. Our speakers usually receive an honorarium for such occasions but we also provide a limited number of presentations free of charge. Let us know how we can help your church or organization.
