One-on one sessions are conducted with the individual and assigned Primary Counselor. Together, they collaborate on Treatment Plan goals and recommended interventions to meet set goals. Individuals meet to discuss areas of concern, challenges and progress toward their goals, as they gain problem solving skills and tools that will aid them in their mental health and/or substance use recovery journey. Individual sessions may also include Mental Health Screenings, Crisis Intervention, and Psychoeducation on Pharmacological interventions that can assist with symptom management.
Individuals are offered a wide variety of group topics that are intended to assist in attaining knowledge, gaining skills, and changing attitudes about their recovery with the support of their peers in a group setting. Individuals gain a sense of belonging to the group through the common goals of recovery. Group therapy is grounded in evidence-based practices. View calendar at Brooklyn and Harlem clinics below.

HEAR FROM SOME OF THE INDIVIDUALS WE SERVE
“I like S:US’ Wellness Works clinic because everyone’s been supportive and helpful, and shows up for me even when I’m not at my best. I have a better understanding about my symptoms and I feel more confident exploring work and school opportunities.”
“This is a very good program. It’s very interactive with participants. I like how they stay connected with me. It’s helped me a lot with my symptoms of paranoia and hearing voices.”
“I’ve been working with Nurse Julia for over three years now! She’s kind, understanding, and very patient with me. I struggled so much in the past with setting boundaries with family and friends. I still have work to do but I have come along way, with Julia’s help. She always reassures me that my feelings and my wellbeing should come first.”
“I’ve been with S:US’ Wellness Works clinic for almost seven years, working with the same therapist. Through therapy, I learned about my diagnosis and how it impacted my behavior. As a result, I’m able to work on my anger management challenges. I went from living in the shelter to a shared apartment, and now I live independently because I maintain my mental health stability through therapy and medication management. I am getting ready to transition to medication management only. Overall, I always feel welcome at the clinic, the staff makes me feel comfortable and I can be myself. That helps me feel supported and understood.”
“The program gives me inspiration and is building me for the future. It has taught me how to abstain from substances and I can think clearer. I am more conscious and I have pride and dignity for myself.”
