Thomas S Rue, MA, LMHC, CASAC, SAP, CCMHC, Counselor in Monticello
Feeling hurt, lost, or anxious, wondering if you want to wake up tomorrow, trapped in addiction or chronic pain, torn between choices, in or recovering from a hurtful relationship, alone, or like life is against you? I can help...
by listening, offering feedback, listening some more, advocating for you when needed, understanding, pointing out strengths or possibilities you might not be seeing, respecting your right to make important choices governing your life...
I have been a counselor since 1985. I help men, women, and older teenagers identify goals, plan how to reach them, and act to make changes. If this sounds useful, give me a call and I will look forward to meeting with you to help re-discover hope and make positive choices.

Thomas S Rue's Groups

Alcohol and Substance Abuse in Society

Originally a psychoeducational counseling group for persons charged or convicted of alcohol- or drug-related driving offense, content has been expanded and modified to relate to a wider audience (for other drug abuse and not just impaired driving). One factor that all have in common is that abusing alcohol or other drugs has caused a problem - mostly (though not necessarily) of a legal nature. Covers the costs to society and individuals of alcohol/drug abuse and irresponsible driving, consequences of the disease of addiction. Continuous enrollment, 15 weeks, 1:1 pre-screening required, men and women welcome.
