Agape Counseling Services is a growing non-profit organization offering an array of drug and alcohol treatment services. Agape was founded in the 1990s and has grown steadily in terms of scope and services offered since that time. At present, Agape offers a number of treatment services aimed at helping our clients achieve sobriety live healthy and productive lives without the continued use of drugs or alcohol. Our goal is to offer each client we have the pleasure to work with an individualized treatment plan aimed at helping our clients to live productive, clean & sober lives.
Our IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program) treatment offers clients group sessions 3 nights a week. Each session is focused on a topic related to recovery. The groups are educational and insightful, offering clients a means to learn about the recovery process in a safe and supportive group-based environment. IOP treatment also includes one, thirty minute individualized therapy session weekly.
Agape Counseling offers individualized counseling for clients needing personalized treatment in a one on one setting. Clients generally meet with their therapist weekly for 45 minute sessions. Here, clients meet with certified therapists to work on achieving and maintaining sobriety through a number of treatment modalities including: cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and solution-focused therapy, among others. This is an outstanding option for clients who need treatment based solely on their individual needs as they work toward implementing a clean & sober lifestyle.
Individualized therapy is offered alone, or as a part of Level 1 treatment. This consists of individual sessions, commonly on a weekly basis, along with an hour and a half group meeting meekly.
Agape Counseling offers a state approved anger management program aimed at helping our clients to identify their triggers and develop skills for understanding and dealing with their anger. Our anger management program incorporates reiki, mindfulness, meditation, self care, self esteem and self worth building, developing healthy communication skills, maintaining healthy relationships, identifying toxic behaviors, and managing anxiety and depression in a holistic manner by developing healthy coping strategies.
Reiki & Meditation
At Agape we also offer mindfulness meditation and reiki. Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you're sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Practicing mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.
Reiki is an energy healing treatment that works holistically; on the whole body, mind and spirit. Not a system of religious beliefs, Reiki is simply a relaxing treatment whereas natural healing vibrations are transmitted through the hands of a Reiki practitioner (acting as a conduit) to the body of the recipient.
