We are offering most of the services we normally offer including group services via telephone and video technology, and with limited in-person appointments. We continue to meet the needs of our clients with the best technology available to us during this time. As of June 1, 2020, we began a closely monitored process of opening our offices to select in person sessions by appointment only. As we progress through that process we will likely post updates to our PDF document above. Please check it periodically.
Safety measures will last likely through part or all of the summer during the extended stay-at-home order or until we receive more guidance from health authorities. Your safety is our primary concern.
Coronavirus is a serious threat. However, we also recognize the importance of mental health and substance abuse services to the welfare of those we serve.
