Our Recovery Support Center provides outpatient services that help those struggling with dependency to become strong and substance-free. We treat the client’s addiction alongside any co-occurring mental disorders, through outpatient or intensive outpatient therapy (anywhere from one to five days a week).
Who is eligible?
Men, women and adolescents who are addicted to alcohol or other drugs, including heroin.
If you live with a mental health condition, you’re not alone. One in five Americans will experience some mental health issue in their life. And there’s no age limit: Children, adults and older adults can all find their lives changed by this common problem.
While mental health issues can rob you of your hope, it’s important to know that with treatment, life can be bearable again.
We operate two Family Treatment Centers, which provide long-term (up to six months) residential treatment for women age 18 or older who are committed to working on their recovery from addiction. We help women develop recovery skills, improve their well-being, enhance their parenting skills, and preserve or repair family relationships.
Caring for an older loved one is rewarding, but it can also be stressful. Taking care of an older adult can be like a second full-time job, leaving the caregiver with little time to attend to their own responsibilities, and bills that keep piling up. Fortunately, there’s a place to turn: The Caregivers First Initiative is a free service that helps caregivers manage stress and learn strategies to cope and care for themselves.
