Individuals from all around Joliet, IL come to us when they have a problem with alcohol and/or drugs. At Adult Counseling & Educational Services Inc., we do not believe in placing blame or judging you for having an addiction problem. We believe there is a root to the reason why you have the addiction problem in the first place. Our goal is to help you figure out what the root of your addiction problem is.
The first step in all of the counseling services we offer is the evaluations. During the evaluations we will sit down with you and discuss your addiction. We will ask you a lot of personal questions about your addiction. We want to know how it makes you feel, and what you are doing when you are drinking or using. The only way our services will help you is if you are honest with us. We promise not to judge you, we just want to help.
The goal of the evaluations is to learn more about when you started drinking and/or using drugs. We also want to learn why you started and why you are continuing the habit now. We believe the key to getting you to stop the habit is figuring out what the trigger of your habit is. The biggest reason why so many people struggle to stop is because they have no idea what their trigger is.
Some of the people who come to us for evaluations do so because they were ordered by the court to do so. You are, however, more than welcomed to contact us on your own because you need help.
