What To Expect

Your recovery journey with Seven Counties Services starts the moment you pick up the phone, contact us online, or walk into one of our locations. During your first appointment, you can expect to meet with a licensed counselor and medical staff to complete a comprehensive assessment of your individualized needs.

We encourage you to bring a friend or family member to support you during the assessment process.

Based on the assessment, a treatment plan will be developed that may include a combination of services such as counseling, medication-assisted treatment, and support groups. Throughout the recovery journey, you will work closely with our team of professionals, who will provide guidance, support, and accountability. Regular progress evaluations will be conducted to ensure that the treatment plan is meeting your needs and to make any necessary adjustments. Whether you need short-term or long-term addiction treatment, we’ll walk alongside you every step of the way to become a healthier, happier you!
