In searching to find the best intensive counseling package for you, you will need
specific information on what is offered so you can make the best choice. The benefit
of intensive counseling is that you can complete 8 to 20 hours of counseling within
a few days rather than eight to twenty 50-minute sessions that are spread out over
months. Because you are away from home, you can readily avoid the distractions and
life situations that can interrupt weekly counseling.

three, or five days in length. Using the five-day package as an example, here is
what you can expect:
