Some people seek counseling because they suspect they might have a problem with alcohol or drugs, but do no know how to proceed. In these cases, Randall's compassionate and non-judgemental approach allows these individuals to safely explore how drugs or alcohol may have replaced healthier coping mechanisms in response to stressors in their lives.
Once someone realizes and accepts that they have a problem with drugs or alcohol, Randall works closely with them to help them rediscover their unique inner resources that can help them deal with stress in a healthier way. If necessary, he can connect them with ancillary treatments including detox programs, inpatient programs, intensive outpatient programs and local 12-step programs.
Friends and family members of substance abusers find Counseling Services Houston to be a safe haven where they can express the fears, frustrations and anger that accompany life with an addict.
Randall McNeal skillfully leads them through a process of self-discovery that reveals their unhealthy coping mechanisms and helps them replace them with healthier ways to take care of themselves. He may also connect them to local support groups such as Al-Anon and Alateen that offer support and encouragement from others in similar situations.
The ultimate goal is to provide each individual with the inner resources and outer tools to ensure their well-being, regardless of the condition of the addict/alcoholic in their life.
