How to get Help

Through an initial screening and assessment process, our staff, in collaboration with clients, work together to determine the most appropriate treatment for each individual and their family. If it is determined that our program lacks the appropriate expertise or resources to treat a client or family’s presenting problem, we will work with the client/family to find other available resources and services to best meet their needs.
