There are times when a group setting may not be deemed appropriate for a client for a specific reason. If this is the case, the client will only be placed in weekly individual sessions for 6 weeks to longer, depending on the treatment needs. We take careful consideration in placing clients with their individual counselor to ensure the best treatment match possible.
