Restoration Counseling Services


Restoration Counseling Services is located in the community of Athens, Tenn., 58 miles northeast of Chattanooga. The facility provides a range of outpatient-based counseling services for adults, adolescents, and children. While it offers counseling for various concerns, Restoration Counseling Services also has specialized programming for individuals dealing with chemical dependency and co-occurring mental health difficulties, including intensive outpatient programs (IOP) for adults and adolescents, as well as aftercare planning.


Clients undergo an initial assessment, which addresses their concerns such as substance abuse history assessment and/or psychiatric evaluation. Based on the assessment, an appropriate curriculum is created that may include topic-relevant group counseling sessions or admission into the intensive outpatient program.

Restoration Counseling Services offers various counseling settings including one-on-one therapy, group counseling, specialized couples counseling (premarital, marriage), and family counseling sessions. The objective of these sessions is to address underlying thought patterns related to addictive and destructive behavior.

The facility also conducts skills training workshops to help clients improve coping skills, regulate emotions, and enhance basic living skills. Additionally, clients may be recommended to attend Celebrate Recovery meetings, a Biblical-based 12-step fellowship. All these services may be incorporated into the IOP.

Clients may also meet with a consulting psychiatrist for ongoing medication management and monitoring. Apart from substance abuse and mental health concerns, Restoration Counseling Services also provides treatment for anger management and victims of domestic violence.

Upon completion of the recommended program curriculum, Restoration Counseling Services assists clients in creating a comprehensive aftercare plan. This may include referrals to supportive housing, vocational training opportunities, and other community-based support resources. The facility also offers on-site drug testing if necessary to ensure accountability.
