Addictions Recovery

All of our Counseling services are provided by our Licensed Counseling Center – The Celebration Hope Center. We offer individual and group sessions for


The Celebration Hope Center staff, who specialize in working with children, see children four and up. They work with various issues, such as sexual trauma, anxiety, depression, grief , divorce adjustment, and behavioral problems. We have a play therapy room so that we can provide Child-Centered Play Therapy. In CCPT, children are able to resolve issues through play. We even have Qualified Filial Therapists who can basically train the parents to be able to work with their own children to resolve issues. Therapists train the parents to be the agents of change.  Then the parents can transition working with their children at the center to at home.

CHC staff also has been trained in various creative therapies that work well with children, such as Sand Tray Therapy. When children utilize sand trays, they are able to process issues at a deeper level due to developmental issues regarding language and art skills.

CHC staff has been trained to utilize Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for children who have been traumatized, especially sexual trauma. This model has the highest success rate of any model for helping children heal from the devastation of sexual trauma.

Finally, when CHC staff works with children, they encourage the parents to attend Triple P Positive Parenting classes and/or Scream-Free Parenting classes. CHC therapists will also do family work as they work individually with the children.


CHC staff work with adolescents struggling with multiple issues, such as sexual trauma, bullying, depression, anxiety, addictions, sexual identity, behavioral problems, and family problems. CHC staff use developmentally appropriate materials to build rapport with adolescents so that they can help adolescents resolve their issues. Many experiential and creative tools are used with adolescents, such as sand trays, art, video games, and music. CHC staff works with the parents and family as needed. Parents are encouraged to attend Triple P Positive Parenting individual or group sessions. CHC staff also uses Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with adolescents who have been sexually traumatized.


Adults can face all types of issues that can make life and relationships challenging. At CHC, therapists work with a myriad of issues with adults in individual, couple, family and group sessions. CHC staff help adults with depression, anxiety, grief, trauma recovery, sexual challenges, addictions, relationship challenges, and other issues that create havoc. CHC staff are trained in many evidence-based therapy models that assist in the healing journey for adults.  Therapists use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally-Focused Therapy, and many other models. We also provide integrated services for those who want their spirituality to be a part of their healing journey. Adults are able to work on many different issues at CHC at the same time by participating in one of the groups offered, such as anger management, marriage classes or parenting classes.

CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) Groups –

The CBT Groups encompass three, stand-alone, 4-week psycho educational groups consisting of 8 to 10 group members, led by licensed therapists and student interns. Groups are helpful for several reasons:

  • Help you to learn skills to improve your mood and your negative thoughts
  • Provide you with support from others with similar issues.
  • Help you understand that you are not alone.
  • You will learn many ways to use the CBT skills to deal with issues and feel better.

CBT groups help participants explore ways to change unhealthy negative thoughts by coming to understand the underlying belief systems that perpetuate them.

Anger Management –

Anger is a normal human emotion that everyone experiences. Problems arise when it becomes too frequent, too intense, leads to violence, or last too long. Celebration Hope Center offers an ongoing 15-week psycho-education open group, developed to help individuals learn various skills to effectively manage stress, identify and change harmful thinking patterns, and appropriately express the emotion of anger.

The Smart Step-Family Group

Celebration Hope Center desires to deliver resources that strengthen families. We believe that strong families add to the health and stability of our communities and provide an environment for children to grow up with safe and secure attachments that provide the foundation for healthy relationships and marriages in the future. We also seek to address the complexities of blended families that create a different set of family dynamics that challenge the skills of those new families. Our answer to those needs is The Smart Step-Family, an 8-session small group resource that will guide you to become a healthy stepfamily.

Why should I consider The Smart Step-Family Group?

  • Approximately one third (38%) of all weddings in America today form stepfamilies.
  • One third of individuals who got divorced in 2008 were re-divorcing, that is, divorcing again.
  •  Only about one third of stepfamily marriages last until death do them part (60% of second marriages and 73% of third marriages end in divorce)

“While general marriage education programs are helpful, they don’t address the specific issues that lead to the 60-70% divorce rate in step couple marriages.”

Ron Deal,  marriage and family author, speaker and therapist.

  • How to identify parent-child-stepparent triangles
  • Ghosts from previous relationships

All of our 12-Step addiction recovery services are provided by our Licensed Counseling Center – The Celebration Hope Center.

The Addictions Program at Celebration HOPE Center is a unique combination of the best of Christian Faith and Best Practices in Professional Addiction Treatment.  There are three levels of care that make up a complete treatment program for those that suffer with the Disease of Addiction.

The first step is to call the office for a telephone screening.

The next step is the assessment.  A member of our addictions counseling team  will complete a BioPsychoSocial Assessment and then an Addiction Severity Index to determine a diagnosis and the appropriate level of care. We work from a team approach in our decision making.  This ensures the best decision regarding a client’s treatment recommendations as it involves our Medical Director, our LMFT, our Social Worker and our Addictions Counselors.

The third step is once the client is assigned to a counselor and a group, the client will meet with a counselor and develop a personalized plan for treatment that fits the client’s goals.

As each phase of the process is completed, the personalized plan will be evaluated for the level of success achieved as the recovery journey continues.

In the Celebration Hope Center’s  Addictions Program, we take every opportunity to celebrate a client’s success. We award certificates of completion at the successful end of each level of care and have a graduation party for those who take advantage of the entire program offered. It doesn’t end there.  Our Alumni Association is a way to continue to receive support, have some fun, and to become a contributor to the community.

The Addictions Program at Celebration Hope Center has developed a winning program for their clients.  If you or someone you love is struggling with drugs or alcohol, give us a call at 504-833-HOPE (4673).
