Project Independence helps adolescents from 16 to 21 years old by teaching skills to help them live as responsible adults. A complete review is done to understand their life skills, their ability to live independently, and other needs. Then, the program focuses on developing better skills through training, education, and counseling. The program is at least 6 months long, but can continue as long as the patient continues to be committed to achieving healthy independent living.
The Healthy Families Program is here to prevent abuse, neglect, and harm to children under 3 years old. This program is for at-risk parents and starts with a complete risk review and a plan of action. Plans usually include direct assistance to parents to help them with positive development for their children, and health, education, and support services to help parents become healthy and positive caregivers and nurturers for their children.
This program is for families that are required to have supervised visits with their children. We want to make sure that all families can maintain regular, quality contact with their children. We also want to make sure that children and their families, guardians or other significant others in their life have a strong plan for reuniting – and enjoy a sense of family identity. The program also includes options for other permanent plans for children if required.
We offer a wide range of services in our overall Children’s Mobile Response and Stabilization Services (CMRSS). These services are available and staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When a child or teen is in crisis, we aim to send social workers or other support personnel immediately to help. This service is an in-home intervention and aims to stabilize and diffuse a crisis for families that request it. This service is not a replacement for police intervention to prevent further violence or a replacement for psychiatric hospitalization. We recommend in case of severe emergencies, call 911.
Our Substance Use Services provide recommendations and referrals designed to help individuals and families make informed decisions about the next step.
Substance Use Services are provided by licensed addiction counselors, licensed social workers, licensed family therapists, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners and nurses who collaborate and develop tailored treatment. These are all evidence-based services making sure that everything we do, we do with quality and high standards for better outcomes.
Please note that while appointments can be made at our offices and facilities, we must note that some of these programs are referral-based only and not completely open to the public. Please contact us for any questions or concerns.
Support groups are key to not only social development, but also for lasting therapy and benefits mental health by helping people form bonds with one another.

Having a group that you can rely on can help a person move through their challenge in a better way. Our support group services are integrated into many programs and offerings, so contact us today for how we can help.
Good social skills can make a big, positive difference in a person’s life and lifestyle. Social skills range from being able to carry a conversation to basic manners to forming friendships. Everyone can gain a benefit from improving or developing their social skills, and some need help more than others because of previous experiences, current therapy needs, or other challenges. Our services offer clients of all ages help with a wide range of social skills, and help them learn new skills as their life or lifestyle changes.

Counseling is something that many, if not nearly all, people tend to need at some point in their life. When you’re not sure what to do, when you’re feeling down, or when there may be other things affecting your life in ways that you’d prefer they wouldn’t, our counseling and therapy programs can help you through it. We offer individual services as well as family services because helping individuals can be very different than helping entire families, and both experience unique challenges that may require some professionals to help them through that challenge.
To learn more about these services, contact us today; and we’ll have a specialist schedule time to help you out.
