ABOUT RESTORED LIFE COUNSELING
Founded in 2012 and located in a scenic, wooded area of Conway, Ark., Restored Life Counseling offers outpatient counseling and psychotherapy services for adults, adolescents, and children. The facility provides support for numerous mental and behavioral health problems including anxiety, depression, and impulse control. Though substance abuse is not listed among clients’ most common presenting problems, the founder specializes in substance abuse treatment. The facility also notes that they “also provide counseling/psychotherapy for individuals for whom a diagnosis is not indicated.” Medical detox is not available at this facility.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Therapy at Restored Life uses a “strengths perspective,” drawing on clients’ positive points rather than focusing on their flaws. The 12-Steps are not part of the treatment program and the center uses individual and family/couples therapy as its primary method of treatment. Most of the counselors use a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT), solutions-focused therapy, and client-centered therapy.
Other treatment methods commonly employed at the facility include reframing self-talk, play therapy, homework assignments, guided imagery, behavioral tracking and monitoring, and thought-stopping techniques. Clients participate in therapy sessions on a regular basis to address problem behaviors. While working with counselors, clients identify and address their strengths as well as their problems for a more sustainable recovery.
The treatment team at Restored Life includes two PhD-level counselors, two licensed clinical social workers, a licensed professional counselor, and a registered nurse who’s also a licensed addiction counselor.
