I know there are/have been "good" and "bad" counselors there, however just as "former receptionist" pointed out it has a lot to do with the personality types. Face it we all get along with different types of people. I personally clash with aggressive or "know it all" type of personalities, hence why I couldn't deal with the "Miss Military" style counselor. I connect better with a down to earth person who is more open minded, less judgmental and more will to go above and beyond to help me, one who does not assume just because I have struggled with drugs I am worthless and beyond help as a few of the counselors there do. I have heard some counselors bad mouth us clients and feel its because they hate druggies, while other counselors are there to give back and do truly care. I have had both, and sadly the one I found most effective got placed in the Utica office two weeks ago and is missed dearly by ALL her clients, but they two who jumped shipped to follow their old boss, not so much. Sadly I got more out of my sessions with the second counselor I had for 5 months than the military style one I was stuck with for 6 months. This is just my personal experience based upon the way I connect with others. And YES I was there at first because I was mandated; however my good counselor made me see how much help I truly needed and she helped me take a deep long look at myself and my actions without being nasty; aggressive or making me feel judged. I thank her for that. I will miss her, but am moving forward and given yet another new counselor a chance to help me stay sober. Yes you get out of it what you put in to it, however the guide that given you the tools helps you in wanting to come back and not given up on yourself. Again Miss Lisa you are missed by all.

I never had her as a counselor, however she listened to my concerns when I requested a new counselor, and worked with me to get one she thought would fit me better and the counselor did. So nothing negative to say about her.

if you don't like a counselor you have, it's called speaking up and asking for something different. yes, every counselor has their own style and it won't work with everybody. but if you don't like specific counselors you need to actually say something, otherwise you're the one that ends up losing out on talking to someone you can connect with. hope the whole year you've been at beacon so far has been worth your while!

Sounds like the guy who had "miss military" obviously isnt learning anything from treatment if he has been there for what sounds like a year. how's that sobriety goin? i personally liked that counselor as well as the other one that left. "miss military" is up front and doesnt sugar coat shit like some other counselors like to. sorry but why do i care if counselors are in recovery or attend mental health like some of them in there like to say. beacon center is a joke now that all the good counselors have left. mrs lisa self disclosed quite a bit so if thats what you liked them good for you. another one there is flat out mean to us. the old one doesnt even know what the hell he is doing. and the other guy just looks to get us in trouble with probation if we even look at him wrong. I finished there after four months because i was fortunate enuf to complete successfully with one of the former counselors. and i think those counselors were realizin what a joke that place was becoming so they left for way better jobs. cant say i blame them. at least i wasnt left there with the sesame street gang.

Sound like the words of Miss Military aka Angela herself ... lol. You just don't like drug addicts and look down on them. You shouldn't even be in this field. You got mad when Miss Lisa started because all the clients you had wanted her over you, because she was there to help, not judge them like you did. Anyone who has attended college courses and took Intro to Psychology 101 knows that self disclosure can be used if it benefits the client and does not harm them. So the fact that her disclosures help her clients are not a bad thing but a good thing. This is evident by how many client miss her over you. Again I ask jealous much???
OH and the old man knows more than others realize. He is extremely knowledgeable in self help and spirituality. Tito is good at reading through the BS some clients like to try and pull. The newest blonde Kate is very book smart and shows compassion for each client, so the team you left behind is a good one, they are no joke.

Why do so many counselors leave the Herkimer office? It seems like every two or three months they have an ad for a substance abuse counselor?

I have read this thread and really surprised at the amount of ignorance and negativity in this area. As a former beacon patient, I enjoyed my treatment and really thank the counselors who played a part in helping me understand what I was doin to myself. For those who need help, seek it wherever you may find it and do it for yourself. Sounds like ppl don't want to hear anything positive if it isn't in agreement with their own opinions. Funny how you all waste your time with negativity and assumption. Ohh yes, must be a counselor posting if it is in support of that place! Lol. We are all allowed to post on this site with our own thoughts and opinions and if you don't share them, no need to be childish about it. I don't care too much for those counselors that talk all about their recovery.... like I'm not there to listen to YOU, i'm there for myself and what I need to talk about. Lisa? Hell no. Gary? HELL no. Angela I had a love hate relationship with her. Sometimes I loved her, sometimes we butt heads. But at the end of the day she called me on my shit and I can't say that many other counselors in there did that. I had sessions with Lisa and it was all AWWWW how are you feeling today? It will be Ok hun.... umm, no not professional. Because of the help I received I now have such a good job, good sober friends, and confidence in myself again. I used to be quite negative like this dude with the Durhamville IP, but I wasn't working my recovery properly and was very easy for me to just hate on everything. Good luck to you guy because after a year in treatment it's very doubtful you learned anything.

In the end, if you are having problems with addiction or substance abuse, get help. No matter where you go there are going to be good and not so good counselors. And it is true that there are some people you will mesh with better counselor wise because as in the real world, some people you just don't click with, and that person should not take it personally. It is what it is. I can't begin to tell you how many more opportunities and the enjoyment out of your life is possible once you live a life of recovery. It is not an easy road, but those things in life that are most worth it are not easy. Take what you can from the rooms and leave the rest. Wish you luck and courage for anyone who decides to partake that journey.

How is asking someone how they are feeling or providing assurance that things will be OK unprofessional???? It is called having EMPATHY; something more counselors and human beings should have.

BTW I have learned a lot from my time at Beacon, such as why I used, how to deal with stress and how my addiction will try to make excuses to use again. I understand I will always be an addict and I need to always be aware of my relapse warning signs. I have learned to keep moving forward and focus on the positives in my life. I have 5 months clean and sober and look forward to many more. I appreciate all the help Miss Lisa gave me in discovering and understanding these things. For me she was a very effective counselor.
