Substance Abuse Counseling

Breaking free of addiction is hard. We believe that every person, no matter their circumstances, should be treated with dignity and respect.

And as long as our clients are working on their recovery, so are we.

Help Without Judgment

Thrive DC offers a low-barrier program designed to reach clients considering sobriety or working hard to sustain it. The program is divided into three basic parts:

  • Educational Groups
  • Treatment Referral
  • Individual Counseling

Group Meetings

Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM Thrive DC holds a group meeting for people in recovery, considering recovery, or looking for more information on getting sober for friends and family members.

Groups are open to both men and women, and are accessible to both English and Spanish speakers.

Education Topics

The Educational Group Topics include:

  • Definitions and self diagnosis
  • Alcohol and drug education
  • Triggers, cravings, and avoiding relapse
  • Planning for sobriety
  • Alcohol and tobacco
  • Sex, drugs, and alcohol
  • Spirituality
  • Stress and emotional health
  • Stress reduction
  • Negative emotions
  • Anger and communication
  • Relapse prevention
