Individual Counseling

At Clear Recovery Center, we offer the support of an individual counselor. The counselor helps individuals uncover and treat the issues underlying their drug and alcohol abuse.


Individual counseling is a core element of a patient’s treatment at Clear Recovery Center. It is a necessary approach that assists people in their ongoing recovery. Each client is assigned to an individual counselor that creates an individualized addiction treatment plan and coordinates with the client’s other substance abuse recovery professionals; the counselor acts as the master coordinator of the client’s care.
