Resources – Programs and Treament Groups
Significant life changes take time and hard work. There are no shorts cuts, magic or easy ways to overcome mental illness or the lure of alcohol, heroin, cocaine, marijuana, or any of the other forms of substance abuse. Change involves working through anger, pain, embarrassment, and the fears that ultimately would lead to relapse. From day one our clients begin learning the tools and skills necessary to maintain sobriety.
Our Clinic offers assistance to those whose lives are affected by mental illness and substance use. Services include evaluation of an individual’s needs and Family services; one to one counseling; educational and treatment groups; strengthening families with coping resources.
We make time for you by providing treatment services with flexible hours and schedules that work around your lifestyle needs.
