Often people do not seek help because they don’t know to. Others feel like looking for health is a sign of weakness or that they believe only “crazy” people get counseling. Counseling helps in a multitude of areas in many aspects of life. Counseling helps individuals address the emotional, social, work, school and physical health concerns people may have at different stages in their lives. It may help you figure out your role as an individual, as a part of a family or community.

Counselors are there to help discuss the problems you are going through and work with you to find a better way to solve those problems. Sometimes dealing with problems on your own can be mentally and physically draining and can lead to serious mental issues. A counselor can help distribute and lessen that stress. They are there to:

  • Listen to you in a nonjudgmental manner
  • Clarify your options
  • Offer suggestions
  • Provide emotional support
  • Ask questions

  • People come to counseling to deal with their concerns when they feel as though their methods are no longer effective. Counseling can be helpful in areas such as:

  • Addiction and abuse of alcohol and other drugs
  • Adjustment issues, including adjustment to college life
  • Anger management
  • Anxiety
  • Communication
  • Depression
  • Gender identity and sexual orientation
  • Grief
  • Relationship difficulties, including roommates, significant others
  • Sexual abuse
  • Suboxone must be prescribed by a certified doctor. Make sure to tell your doctor if you have lung, kidney, gallbladder, adrenal gland, thyroid, or prostate problems. Also, be sure to tell him if you have a history of a head injury, mental problems of any type, hallucinations or alcoholism. You may still be able to take Suboxone for your opioid addiction you just may require a dosage adjustment or extra monitoring. You should not under any circumstances take it if you are or think you may be pregnant. Do not take it if you are currently breastfeeding also.
