Counseling is available for families and couples to clarify problems and work towards a solution in conjunction with substance abuse treatment.

Treatment

The Hicksville Counseling Center has three phases of treatment:

Phase I: The focus is on early recovery issues such as becoming abstinent
.
Phase II:  The focus is on relapse prevention and assisting our clients to learn how to live a balanced, substance abuse free lifestyle.
Phase III:  Aftercare is available for those wanting/needing to continue treatment after completing Phases I & II

Chronic Relapse Track: This track is offered to clients who have experienced previous treatment attempts but are still struggling with maintaining abstinence. The goal is relapse to recovery.

We also offer an on-site AA meeting, Tuesdays at 8pm.
