Mission Statement :


We are a client-centered agency that provides a full range of education and treatment services for youth, adults and families impacted by substance abuse. 


We provide services to a culturally diverse population that includes individuals at all income levels. 





We Believe :

  • Chemical dependency is a primary, chronic, progressive, and fatal disease if not treated properly with therapy, guidance, support and abstinence from mind-altering drugs. 
  • Recovery is possible if treatment addresses family history, mental state of mind, relationships, and the cultural forces that act on the individual.
  • Substance abuse is a pattern of use that can be broken with an effective treatment program.
  • Substance misuse can be addressed through education and prevention. 
  • Intervention with the cooperation of family, friends and community support can make a difference and break the cycle of addiction. 



Alcohol and Drug Information School (ADIS) :


The ADIS is offered on the second Saturday of the month from 9-5 pm. The cost is $70 in advance. The workshop focuses on the impact of drug use on decision making
