Adolescence is a challenging but developmentally critical period in a child’s life. We offer comprehensive teen counseling that supports physical, mental, and academic success while building pro-social supports and life-skills. Our approach is multi-systemic and we work with every aspect of a child’s life.
We provide private individualized outpatient treatment for substance use disorders. Addiction is treated utilizing a harm reduction approach that supports client progress at every level. Therapy is provided one-to-one or with supportive family present to optimize accountability, client comfort, and goal achievement.
We collaborate with schools and community groups to provide training and strategies around teens, behavior, drugs, and addiction. We recommend a reality-based educational approach which empowers families while providing life saving knowledge and options that reduce substance abuse.
How we work
We specialize in helping individuals and families with substance use disorders and parents with behaviorally challenging teens.
We believe that active addiction is not a barrier to care and that anyone can improve with therapy at any time. Participation is always a beneficial step.
We practice a complete wellness approach to treatment affecting body, mind, and the environment giving our patients the greatest chance of success.
Therapy at Family & Addiction Counseling is client rather than model directed. We utilize a variety of cognitive, behavioral, and evidenced based community treatments to help each patient maintain and support their unique treatment goals.
