Now they are helping my neighbor! This place serves their community well!!!!! What a Gem!!!!
The South Suburban Council comes to our High School several times a month. I had heard about there after school sessions but never really reached out. I have never been in trouble but I thought about it and decided to ask if I can participate. They said yes without question. I learned so much - I never want to be addicted to anything. Never want some substance to control me. Then I learned that they do this free of charge. You guys care - so do I. Thanks!!!!
To the staff of SSC I am writing this letter to convey my gratitude for helping me through one of the most difficult times of my life. I came to SSC for help with my addition on October 1st 2019, I started in in-patient and that's when I really came to understand that I have a disease and until I admitted that I was powerless when it came to my disease I would probably never get better, I am so thankful to the staff there especially my counselor Cynthia and the rest of the staff over there they really helped me to began to work on myself. I then moved to the next level of treatment, Intensive Out-patient where I learned more about the disease of addition and what I could do to address and help myself be able to live a productive life. I learned how to start working a program of recovery, how to work on my thinking because that's where my problem really starts and how to incorporate the 12-step program of AA and NA into my life. How this will help me to build a solid foundation and give me an support system people who have found a way to live without the use of drugs and alcohol. From there, I went on to complete BCP or Basic Counseling Program with Mr. Fortenberry which I continued to accept my problem as a disease and work on my thinking and behavior and ability to accept life on life terms without using. I started making meetings and got a sponsor and have since made a beginning on the 12-steps. My life has gotten a lot better since I made that decision to get help and the staff here at SSC have made this part of my journey bearable and possible . I can see now and the future does not look as dark as it was 4 months ago, it looks much brighter and I'm ready to fight for my life. Thank you so much for helping me and showing me that there is a way and a solution. I am very grateful for the entire staff there, I also would like to thank Mr. Banks and Ms. Aikens for being there to support me as well.
My name is Mr. Henderson and today is my last day at SSCA. This program helped me to learn what the value of life is after being an addict for many years. It helped me in ways I did not think was possible. This a good place to start your recovery. The counselors are nice and teachable. I am looking forward to staying on a path of clean and sober with that said this is a great program, if you work it.
Alumni praise the Council for its attentive staff and multiple treatment modalities, including specific programs for addressing trauma and mental health issues. Because I attend a lot of AA meetings I have come across lots of alumni of The Council. This is why when I relapsed I sought them out. An experience that has changed my thinking profoundly. Thanks Guys for loving me and teaching me.
The Councils “tough-love” approach doesn’t leave out the “love”—or the “tough.” A traditional rehab with a solid 50-year track record, The Council takes clients’ sobriety as seriously as its discipline.
The South Suburban Council came to our High School free of charge and talked with our entire team about vaping. It was very informative. That someone would take time out of their lives to do something like this is amazing to me and all of us said the same thing. Thank You Council for caring!!
You are never alone and don't have to be alone. Many individuals suffering from addiction or alcoholism suffer from stigmatization and are preoccupied with being stigmatized prior to receiving treatment. As soon as you walk through the door at The Council, you will realize that all their staff are non-judgmental, compassionate, and are there to help you every step of the way. You will come to find out that you are not the only one that struggles with addiction and also suffering from an array of other life problems. You will heal, find support, and develop a clear pathway to obtain the quality of life you envision. Most importantly, you will learn that you are not alone in you addiction, and never have to be alone when dealing with your addiction and life problems.
The therapists at The South Suburban Council work with you at the "core emotional level to uncover the central issues driving the addiction or co-occurring disorder," all while you recuperate. Take advantage of the downtime and recover your mind and body. I had beaten my body up so badly that when I finally slept naturally I really knocked out. Woke feeling "new".
The South Suburban Council has dedicated teams providing comprehensive addiction treatment in a structured and therapeutic setting, with plenty of recreation during downtime. Alumni appreciate the sense of community and understanding staff. Because of that I chose them for my treatment. It was a great decision!
