SUPPORT AND RECOVERY


Counseling Center

From time to time, we all need help coping with the challenges of life. Riverchase's Counseling Center Coordinator, Stephanie Fedor-Joseph, is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and National Certified Counselor (NCC) committed to guiding you towards wellness through one-on-one counseling sessions.

Typically, sessions are 50 minutes in length, though extended sessions are available. Sessions can be scheduled weekly or as needed based on counseling goals. To cover the cost of the program, fees can range from $65 to $95 per session, based on income. 

For a free, confidential telephone consultation, or to set up an appointment, please contact our counselor, Stephanie Fedor-Joseph, MS, LPC, NCC, stephanierfedor@aol.com, 205-520-1379, Monday - Thursday, between 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Alcoholics Anonymous® is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other so that they may overcome their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; AA is a self-supporting group through its own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; and neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Its primary purpose is to help its members stay sober and to help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.

AA meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 6:30 PM in the Education/Office Building room 111.

If you are currently in or anticipate a job search, this ministry can help you gain support, learn the latest search techniques, and network.
