What is Outpatient Counseling?
Outpatient counseling is designed to serve adults or children (age 4 and up) with mental health issues, substance abuse, and other co-occurring disorders.
Our counseling program offers treatment and intervention with the goal of increasing the strengths and resources available to each individual served. The program empowers individuals to build skills needed to begin the recovery process.
