Helping To Cure My Ills

"Like most of those who come to Care Counseling Center (CCC), I had been state-mandated, and like most, I had a serendipitous outlook on what I would experience at that point. I expected the worst! Folks, I can say, unequivocally, that CCC has been one of the most uplifting and edifying experiences that I have had in some time. I have been at CCC much longer than most, so I have got to observe the REAL quality and character of the program and its elements. It’s said that “A closed mouth does not get fed”. This is as true an epigram as has ever been uttered. These folks react immediately to requests for assistance, and when they detect that help is needed, spring into action immediately. If it is a situation in which they see is beyond their capacity, they readily direct a client to a suitable provider. I have been here to the extent that CCC has become a second family or extended family to me. And with the workers being so familiar with certain aspects of my situation (i.e., health problems, addiction, family, etc.), they were there when they were needed. They have always exhibited patience, empathy, servitude, and understanding, which are necessary elements when helping people in recovery. I would recommend CCC to anyone facing challenges in their life – it can be a “breath of fresh air”. All I can say is: If it’s necessary to find a new path, try Care Counseling Center – you may find it a rewarding experience. If one follows their well-designed programs, there will be a positive, and ever- motivating outcome, PERIOD!"

Happy and Healthy

“I came to Care Counseling Center at a very low point in my life. I was struggling with addiction, and I didn’t know where to turn. I had just been released from the hospital, where I spent 9 days in the ICU due to liver failure as a result of my drinking. The staff here were so welcoming and supporting, and were able to schedule an initial intake with me the same week. They helped me understand and manage my addiction by providing the tools I needed to overcome it, and through individual therapy and group work. I am so grateful for the help I received at Care Counseling Center.  I am now almost 5 months sober and am living a happy and healthy life. I would recommend treatment at this facility to anyone who is struggling with addiction.”

My Life and How It Changed

"I, Joan, am writing this testimony in reference to my life and how it has changed. First and foremost – life is not how you thought it would be. Growing up it was wonderful because you are being taken care of by your parents. Then, all of a sudden, you become an adult. Being an adult is very hard. I couldn’t wait to grow up because I wanted to help take care of my mom, like she took care of me and my sibling. Even when my son was born, she did everything to care for him. Then, one day, my mother was no longer here. My life turned upside down. I changed drastically, lost my job, lost my home and my family, started getting fast money, and got in trouble with the law. They say money is the root of all evil – I learned that the hard way. Going to jail was not nice, but I learned to accept things the way they are – I consider it a divine intervention. I was lost and upset when I came to Care Counseling Center, but in the long run it was worth it. I talk about my problems and people actually listen. They give advice – whether they are my peers or younger – I listen. My life has changed in the last several months. I didn’t believe that 7 months have already gone by since I was court mandated. But it was worth it! My health is being taken care of, I am paying more attention to myself, and everyone - from my counselors to the court, to myself – definitely sees the positive changes! I am clean and sober, looking to get back into school and work – all thanks to Care Counseling Center!"

Back on Track

"Attention - if you’re reading this, you’re on the right track to learning about how Care Counseling can help you like they helped me. Hi, my name is Dylan, and this is how I successfully got my life on track and away from substances and excuses. I joined Care Counseling around March of 2023, and they helped me realize that this was a chance for a new beginning. This program educates you in a lot of different ways and helps you get through whatever obstacles are in your way. They have so much to offer. The amount of effort you put into changing your life they will do the same for you they teach you it's possible to change your life if you desire. The director, counselors and clinical staff are absolutely wonderful. No matter what treatment you need and how busy your life is they will work with you and accommodate your specific needs, but it doesn't stop here. No matter what you need, do not hesitate to ask your counselor or the clinical supervisor. If they say they’re going to do something for you, they do it. I highly recommend this program because they offer more than just treatment. They have NY State resources that help find shelter, schooling and much, much more. If you’re mandated or want to start getting your life back on track this program will help you do that. Stop saying you'll do it tomorrow and do it today at Care Counseling."
