    Alternatives In Psychological Consultation‘s Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual therapy aims to identify the core issues that would have led the patient to substance abuse and address the root cause effectively.

    Couples Therapy at Alternatives In Psychological Consultation

If trauma is the primary cause of substance abuse, then both issues must be addressed. Otherwise, there is a risk of relapse.
