  • Elevate Counseling Services to offer group addiction recovery counseling session, “One More Day at a Time!”

    Published on October 7, 2021

    Elevate Counseling Services  , a growing practice serving the needs of clients from locations in South Easton, Lakeville, Raynham and Bellingham, will soon launch a group counseling session for people in remission from alcohol and addiction abuse.

    “One More Day at a Time!” will be an open-ended group that will run for 12 weeks, and will include guided mediation, cognitive strategies, discussion – and homework. The group is open to anyone age 21 or older and will be conducted virtually over teleconferencing, at least through the end of 2021.

    “This is a group for people who have had a problem with alcohol and have been able to ‘put it down’ for brief periods of time or even longer,” said Leigh-Ann Larson, CEO. She added, “But, for someone considering even though people may have been able to put it down, they are still not feeling quite like themselves. They may still be craving or thinking about drinking. The group will help do a deep dive into the thinking that does that. We will explore the habit brain, the conscious brain and provide tools to help people make better choices for themselves.”

    The group will be facilitated by Leigh-Ann Larson, LMHC, CEO of Elevate Counseling, who has considerable experience in addiction and recovery counseling.

    The growing private practice will offer a number of new and innovative group and individual therapy practices this fall.

    Elevate recently opened a fourth location and has re-instituted in-person counseling, while still maintaining virtual sessions for those who prefer them.
