Review by Contributors


Based in Woodstock, Illinois, Direct Counseling Inc offers outpatient programs (OPs), aftercare, and state and court-order evaluations for adult clients involved in the criminal justice system, specifically offenses related to substance use and/or anger management.


Treatment at Direct Counseling targets five main areas. They include DUI treatment (both in- and out-of-state); domestic battery intervention; anger management treatment; license restoration; and substance abuse recovery. Other services include forensic evaluations and an underage drinking program.

Depending on the area of treatment, clients may receive individual and group counseling sessions, driver risk education, relapse prevention services, anger management evaluations and behavioral education, and waivers for treatment, among many others. Direct Counseling is one of 52 percent of facilities in Illinois offering services to DUI clients (page 132).

The amount of counseling needed depends on the level of risk determined for each client during evaluations. Counseling may last from one day to 12 weeks. Aftercare lasts one to six months.


Direct Counseling employs a master's-level registered nurse, licensed care social worker, and counselors certified in alcohol and drug counseling, evaluation, and education.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY has not yet received any feedback for Responsibility House from its former clients, friends or family members, or staff.
On Google reviews to date, three alumni rated Direct Counseling four, one, and one out of five stars.[1] Alum Arielle praised the facility's pricing, program flexibility, and staff, writing: "Would recommend anyone to them. Things may get off track but they work with you to find solutions."

However, alum Luiz, in a more critical review, wrote: "Place is a joke you are just another number to them they dont care about your treatmet just taking your money!!"


A list of fees is available on Direct Counseling's website. Although insurance is not accepted, payment plans and "pay as you go" arrangements are available.
