New Horizons in Quincy helped me at my lowest. I was thrown off another Suboxone clinic (Brightview) for relapsing. Literally like I kept relapsing and missed 2 appointments. Isn’t relapse a part of recovery? I mean if you’ve relapsed as many times as I have you know it is. So when I needed the counseling and support and yes the Suboxone the most I reached, my Suboxone doctor cut me off. Like how much worse can it get? I called New Horizons hoping for an appointment. New horizons took me immediately. They listened to me. They agreed that what the other place did was wrong. They gave me support and encouragement. Not just once but every time I go there. They don’t judge you. They are flexible. When you come here you get a feeling of being welcome. To an addict that’s something you might never feel

What is Mental Health Counseling and Therapy?

Counseling involves psychotherapy to address any psychiatric disorders as well as to build self-esteem and improve social and community functioning. New Horizons Medical provides a judgment-free zone to help you express yourself on how you feel and think.

There are many factors that could lead to mental health problems. Seeking help is an extremely important step to living a balanced and healthy lifestyle. The goals of mental health counseling are to help people establish goals and develop approaches to address any emotional issues, improve skills in communication, maintain relationships, coping, promote changes in behavior, and improve mental well-being.

According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI), one in five Americans experience mental health issues – that’s more than 40 million adults each year.
