Waterstone Counseling Centers Services Overview

We Can Help. NOW

We seek to create an atmosphere of trust, respect, compassion, and reliability with each client we care for in our treatment program. We believe in small acts of kindness. Each person presents with unique challenges and life stories. We take the time to decide when to make treatment program guideline exceptions, giving our clients the benefit of the doubt. We facilitate motivation though “holding the hope” for our clients when they are dealing with setbacks, an inevitable part of the recovery process.
The gold-standard for care in treating opiate addiction is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). Visit the drop-down links below to learn more about our individual treatment philosophy and clinical medications, such as suboxone.

Because opiate addiction is life threatening, chronic, and resilient, our model is uniquely designed to provide as much access to services as possible in an outpatient setting including: ongoing group and/or individual psychotherapy, regular meetings with the prescribing physician, medication monitoring, access to specialty trauma therapy, and weekly urinalysis.

LONG-TERM  Outcomes

Our highly personalized MAT program is designed to tailor the best treatment option in a healing environment that is conducive to providing our clients long term success. Our emphasis on whole-person healing is reflected in our home-like environments and  staff-client relations.

PERSON-CENTERED

It is our philosophy that every individual is unique and has unique challenges. Our clinicians and counselors believe firmly in what they do, but mostly they believe that our programs work. We do not simply deploy clinical protocols to our clients, we provide individualized caring solutions.
