We emphasize connection, engagement, safety and control; autonomy is incredibly important in solving one’s problems and people have the right to control their own bodies and make their own decisions.
Currently, Black & Gray Addiction Support is offering individual counselling, recovery coaching, and case management.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we have decided to focus on digital or phone-based services to ensure the safety of our clients. Even though we are a Nova Scotia and Newfoundland addiction counselling service, we are also available for clients throughout Canada.
In our one-on-one support for clients, Black & Gray utilizes a number of counselling models including:
- Narrative Therapy;
- Gestalt Therapy;
- Motivational Interviewing;
- The 12 Steps;
- Existential Therapy;
- Psychodynamic Therapy;
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT);
- Mindfulness-base Interventions;
Both Andrew and Mark are passionate about improving our clients’ quality of life using these, and other, counselling models. They are continuously advancing their skills in different areas to stay at the forefront of addiction and mental health research.
Black & Gray also uses the Substance Use Management (SUM) model for clients with substance abuse issues, which emphasizes the belief that the human spirit we all have is more powerful than the human destruction we are all capable of showing.
No matter how far into drug abuse a person is, their basic humanity is never completely lost. We want to not only guide the improvement of the drug problem, but also assist in the recovery of lost humanity and dignity. This practice helps to leave behind the oppressive role of abstinence-based treatment systems, and offers hope for the development of the clients’ ability to meet goals.
