About Us

  Recovering Minds is a general incorporated association to help anybody who suffers from alcoholism and addiction as well as family members and friends impacted by these illnesses.  Quite a few hospitals and treatment centers are currently offering various treatment programs for alcoholism and other addictions, however, there are so many people who do not know what to do with their own drinking habit or an alcoholic close to them.  Alcoholics have problems solely because they have a brain disease called alcoholism, but the surrounding factors, such as, job, families, health conditions, financial status and so forth, are different from one another. That is why there is no one-fit-all strategy to battle against this disease, and many afflicted people are just being baffled and get lost in this maze without exit.


   We, as a group of skilled and experienced counselors and licensed social workers in the field of alcoholism and addictions, try to provide a set of tools, which will lead the troubled people in the right direction towards the solution.  We educate and counsel our clients, and introduce resources for their prompt recovery and healing.

Our Services

  Addiction is a progressive, chronic, and lethal disease. It slowly kills people while destroying lives of their loved ones. Here is the menu that we offer for our clients.


Counseling : In-person, e-mail, phone or online counseling by experienced staff. Available for anyone with drinking problems or those who suffer from someone else’s alcoholism.

Seminar and workshop : Various topics include codependency, grief work and adult children.

EAP / CSR programs : We have been assisting mental health programs for an airline and a liquor-distribution company.

Confidential telephone counseling for alcoholism in English is available on Saturdays!

Counseling Hours : 5:00 pm ~ 8:00 pm
Just call : 045-306-5607

Telephone counseling for alcohol abuse & addiction with no consulting fee.
We also consult with family members or anyone who is close to the alcoholic person .

The counselor in charge has mental health social worker license and is in recovery from alcoholism.

After the phone counseling, we will offer one 60-min face-to-face counseling for free.
This session can also be done by phone or on-line.

 Either way, this free session will be offered only one time. 

People often ask these questions 
Am I an alcoholic?
How can I reduce the amount of daily alcohol consumption?  Is it possible at all?
What should I do if a family member has a drinking problem?
Why do I blackout when I drink?  It’s embarrassing.
