The counselor is a recovering addict himself, makes us coffee, let's us bring snacks for the whole group, and doesn't just stick to text book like some. He let's us have conversation on the topic, even if it means he doesn't get all his presentation done. I can trust that what I say in group stays there. I can always call on my counselor if I'm upset or happy about something. I can't really say there is any weaknesses.
