Tony A Halton's Groups

Healthy Effective Loving Parents (H.E.L.P) Group

Parenting is perhaps one of the most difficult roles in society today. Our Healthy Effective Loving Parents (H.E.L.P) group is aimed at helping parents learn and model positive behaviors and gain greater insight into child's development and needs. Parents goals include learning to recognize the systemic nature of family interaction and discover that the best way to facilitate changes in their children's behavior is to make healthy changes in their own behavior. Behavioral goals of the group also include learning and practicing specific skill areas such as communication, problem solving, and limit setting.

Substance Abuse Group and DUI Classes

Assessment and Psycho-educational counseling to help participants learn about the process of substance abuse and addiction. Members learn how alcohol and drug use can impair judgement; create health problems; contribute to relationship conflicts, and cause legal problems. Members are assessed and accepted into group at various levels of substance use. Setting learning and behavioral goals are vital and they are asked to make a commitment abstain from substance use. Participants are encouraged to identify short term goals that will help them avoid alcohol or drug use, focus on developing the ability to use alternative coping skills, and prevent relapse.
