Counseling Services

Program Details

There are three forms of counseling done at the Haverstraw Center through the Reachout program: individual, family and group counseling.

Individual/Family Counseling – Consists of individual counseling done with participants from the ages of 8 years old to20 years old, and/or family counseling with their loved ones. Appointments may be made by either dropping into the Center or by calling us at (845) 429-5731. An initial assessment will be done by a trained counselor, to gain the information to ascertain whether the person is appropriate for prevention counseling services. If they are not appropriate for our services every effort is made to make a proper referral for services that are needed.

Group Counseling –  Group counseling is done with a group of individuals who are experiencing similar issues. These are process groups and not curriculum-based. Two groups currently available are the Smokers Aftercare Group for women and the Butts Out group for men. The focus of both these groups is to talk about the negatives of smoking cigarettes and the positives of quitting.

Teen Intervene – is an evidence-based program for teenagers (12 to 19 years old) suspected of experiencing mild or moderate problems associated with alcohol or other drug use; the program can also include their parents or guardians. The Teen Intervene program integrates stages of change theory, motivational interviewing, and cognitive-behavioral therapy, to help young people make healthy decisions regarding substance use. Referrals from Teen Intervene may include prevention counseling, or, if the person is affected by a substance use disorder, to an appropriate treatment facility.
