Q: How do I make an appointment?
A: Call our office 219-961-4357 and request to make an appointment. We will take it from there.
Q: How long is an appointment?
A: Individual sessions with an advocate lasts 45-50 minutes. Our support groups last 1.5 hours.
Q: Is what I say confidential?
A: Yes, unless you disclose the intent to bring harm to self or others.
Q: Is advocacy the same as counseling?
A:The Fair Haven Staff are neither licensed counselors nor licensed therapists. The suggestions and instruction received should not—and is not encouraged—to be a replacement for professional counseling.
Our goal is to provide you with insights and tools needed to move beyond trauma, limiting beliefs and behaviors using a process that focuses on mind, body and spirit restoration.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: All of our services are provided to the community free of charge. We are here to help.
Q: Can I see an Advocate today?
A: If you call and make a request to be seen today, we will make every effort to make that happen. However, most clients requesting individual services can be seen within 24 hours.
Q: How long will it take before I feel better?
A: It takes as long as it takes. Healing is a journey, not a destination. Here, we take it one step at a time and trust in the process.
Q: I have a friend who needs services. Can I call and make an appointment for her?
A: No. your friend must call us and request services. You can support her, but let her do the talking.
Q: If my friend calls and makes an appointment, can I come with her?
A: We encourage each client to have a good support system for this journey! Good for you for being just that. However, the counseling sessions are for the individual seeking services. Our suggestion: give her the encouragement to go and meet her afterwards for coffee!
Q: Do you prescribe medication?
A: No. We do not have a psychiatrist on staff.
To schedule an appointment or find out more about the services we offer, please call (219) 961-4357 or send us an email.
