Conscious Living (Young Adult Program)

I am announcing a new young adult program that I am directing for clients struggling with any type of substance abuse and/or addiction. The name of the program is called Conscious Living and is located at our main office at Warnecke Professional Counseling in East Cobb (2050 Roswell Rd, Marietta, GA 30062). The program is already reserving spaces for young adults interested in the program. Conscious Living is a 90-day program, but we are willing to accommodate clients that may only need 30-days or less. The approach is holistic and experiential, involving process groups (Yalom's theoretical framework), individual therapy, mindfulness meditation, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, CBT, prevention intervention, and other traditional drug and alcohol treatment approaches. 
The program meets 5 days a week for 3 hours a day from 1pm to 4pm. We have licensed counselors facilitating the groups and program. 
The curriculum created is to facilitate more of the higher brain functioning. With the use of experiential approaches, we are cultivating the pre-frontal cortex which is responsible for rational thinking, executive functioning, introspection, focus, weighing possible consequences for behavior, adjusting behavior, emotional regulation, and clarity, just to name a few. It has been found in research that young adults and young adults experiencing any level of addiction would benefit from an experiential program, where the role of experiential therapy is critical in developing the neural connectivity that allows for conscious cognitive control of the emotions and passions of adolescents and young adults.  
If you are aware of someone struggling with addiction and could use help, my staff and I would be more than happy to help. Love and light! Bob
