Addiction Management Counseling
Learn How To Gain Control Over Your Sinful Habits By Replacing Them Beneficial Practices.
- Christian counseling is confidential, Bible-based counseling by one trained and experienced in both pastoral and counseling ministry.
- Christian counseling is not designed to treat severe mental illness. We do not perform psychiatric or psychological evaluations, nor prescribe medication.
- The Christian counselor uses prayer and scripture to welcome God's presence in the healing process.
- A typical counseling session lasts one to two hours. After the first meeting, the counselor will make recommendations for follow-up appointments, growth assignments, Christian spiritual practices of grace, and participation in other support ministries, well as a fellowship with a local corporate or house church, or small group ministry.
