    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
  • Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

Clinical staff at Ayre Counseling specialize in treating a wide range of problems and challenges, including substance use, anger management, depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders, bipolar disorder, LGBT-related issues, and more. Most clients are seen once a week, though frequency of meeting may vary based on need. Medication management may also be available to address co-occurring mental health concerns.
