The School-Based Youth Services Programs offer social and health development for students and families in the Lakewood and Brick school districts. The programs are offered in a school setting and provide a wide range of behavioral health and social services such as individual, group, and family counseling, substance use services, college exposure, job skills training, and recreation.
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.
For anyone you may know who has challenges expressing feelings well, or expression in general, or who may be experiencing some challenges in how they react to things or how sad they may be feeling, this service offering is to help them. With the support of multiple counselors and support specialists, our Behavioral Modification Support service provides a better path toward balance in a client’s mental health. To learn more about this service, contact us today and if you’re interested in scheduling an appointment for someone, let us know.
Caregivers have a challenging job and a meaningful career. Our wide range of services aim to help caregiving in all its forms and to support the needs of caregivers and those they care for. To learn more, contact us.
This campaign is for high school students attending prom. The concept is to make teens aware that they can have a fun time at prom without drinking. Posters are given to schools who partner with the campaign for their prom events, and students receive compact mirrors with the “Make it a memory, not a mistake” slogan as a subtle reminder to them not to drink during or after prom. The Underage Drinking Committee continues to expand this campaign to include more awareness before prom season in the form of Public Service Announcements and partnerships with local businesses in the prom industry (including limousine services, florists, tuxedo rental shops and dress shops, etc.) and hopes to add more schools as partners. If you would like to help support this campaign, contact us.
This campaign includes a toolkit for bars, restaurants and liquor stores to help them implement a 100% Proofing Policy. 100% Proofing refers to a policy where every customer who tries to buy alcohol will be asked for identification, no matter how old they look. The toolkit includes posters and table tents to inform visitors of the new policy and laminated posters to remind the employees why the 100% Proofing policy is a good idea. The toolkit also comes with a blacklight and an ID guide to assist employees with checking foreign IDs or out-of-state IDs. In addition to the toolkits, the Prevention Coalition of Monmouth County continues to promote the 100% Proofing Policy to the public, to help people understand the dangers of underage drinking and inform them of the policy itself. If you would like to bring the 100% Proofing Policy to your bar, restaurant or liquor establishment, contact us.

This general service is offered by qualified and committed healthcare professionals in order to help patients of all ages and all types to better understand themselves and how to live better lives. Knowing that a problem exists is the first way to solving it. And once solved, or at least better-understood, patients can live the lives they deserve to live.
