Keweenaw Peninsula Alcoholism Counseling

The program subscribes to the belief that alcoholism/chemical dependency is a disease (American Medical Association) which is rooted in alienation from God and violates one's conscience. Alcoholism/ chemical dependency is believed to be a family disease. Everyone in the family is affected by the alcoholic/chemically dependent person and each family member develops problems similar in nature to the addicted person. With this understanding the dependent person(s) and their families need to receive counseling help in the physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual areas of their lives.

Kathryn Salmi Christian Counseling

In order to provide quality care for the alcoholic/chemically dependent person and his/her family members, activities and education will include participation in meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous and/or Alanon and other 12-step programs. These programs are felt to complement a Christian approach to recovery. Helping individuals become involved in the local Christian church body and working with individual pastors to accomplish this involvement is also an on-going part of this counseling service.

The target population of this private practice is the alcoholic/chemically dependent person and his/her family members. The various issues serviced are co-dependency issues, eating disorders, sexual and dependency addictions, and abuse issues. Both group and individual therapy is available for children, adults and senior citizens. After the assessment process and the development of a treatment plan, outside assignments and activities are an essential component of the counseling process. The word of God and prayer are also important components of the counseling process. Referrals are also made to local doctors offices and other agencies that may be helpful to the client's treatment.
