Counseling

1 on 1 Counseling is the core of our program. We offer it in the community, in-home, in-office and through video chat.  We believe in leaning into a person when they are struggling so that we can talk with them and calm them to get them back up on their feet quickly before they develop more serious issues. We help people to work through past traumas and teach them how to deal with real-time life issues before they cause issues with work and personal life.

We use a "Meet me where I'm at" style counseling and offer it 1 on 1 and in a group setting depending on the client's needs.

Mentoring / Life Skills

In many cases, we can provide our clients with a mentor to help them get things done.  Mentors engage the client regularly in life skills development activities and hold them accountable for case goals like completing a vocational training program, moving out of a toxic environment, completing community service, paying fines, getting fit or even quitting smoking.  Mentors can help write resumes, help apply for jobs, prepare for interviews, help with following through and in many cases transport clients to treatment and other important appointments.

Case management

In most cases, our clients need more than just a little group counseling to achieve lasting change.  Our case managers assist clients with finding resources and they work closely with their counselor and mentor to create and support case plans that include the client's immediate needs, long term goals, and any court-ordered compliance.

Pro-Social Activity

An idle mind can be dangerous and one of the hardest things to do is make new friends if you want to stay sober and law-abiding.  Old friends and boredom are high-risk factors so we provide our clients with optional pro-social activities regularly to support recovery. We engage the clients in healthy activities like sporting events, concerts, art exhibits, fun parks, aquariums, expos, community events, and outreach activities to educate people on natural and safe ways to have fun without substance use.

Employment Assistance

One of the hardest things to deal with is getting a new job these days. The market is getting more and more competitive by the day.  We work with each client individually to identify job opportunities that are both gainful and meaningful. We provide assistance with resume writing, interviewing techniques, clothing, and transportation to interviews in some cases.

Social Services

Our primary objective is to help people make lasting change in their life. We can provide a spectrum of things to help people through the transition.
