At Georgi Educational and Counseling Services, we help individuals, families and educational communities find solutions for substance use and abuse issues through the utilization and integration of best practice treatment guidelines and current neurological research. We provide developmentally-appropriate and gender-sensitive prevention, intervention and educational services as a means to impact individual behavior by altering the context in which the behavior occurs.
We believe that the answers to the most perplexing challenges facing our young people and their families today are found through the integration of scientific insight with life experience which provides our lives with understanding. The deepening of spiritual principles provides our lives with meaning and respect for relational connections creating a sense of community. We work with different types of communities to address substance abuse. We seek solutions based on the individual needs of our clients.
One of the best expressions of our commitment to students in recovery and their families is Bluefield, a Recovery Coaching Service providing individual strengths-based support for young adults in recovery. The recovery coaches connect young adults to the young people’s recovery network in the Triangle and encourage their involvement in that community. Through both 12-step meetings and social activities, recovery coaches provide the post-treatment support that is so vital in a successful return to campus. Our recovery coaches have extensive experience with life in sobriety and all of our coaches experienced success maintaining their recovery while active in the collegiate community.
