Your first appointment will be with a counselor who has expertise in assessment.  We want to hear your story — how you began using, the struggles you have had, and how your substance use has impacted your life.  We also want to know your goals so that we can work together to achieve them.

During your initial appointment, you will collaborate with your counselor to develop a treatment plan in order to stay on the same page.  You and your counselor will also agree to a treatment timeline.  Your treatment plan guides our work together.  You and your counselor will periodically review your treatment plan and update it with any changes you would like.  This review process will help you measure the progress you have achieved and chart your continued course of treatment.

Treatment can provide you with a fresh start.  You will complete treatment a healthier person with the tools that you need to live the life you want and deserve!
