Counseling & Treatment

The Council’s Center for Recovering Families provides intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), counseling services, relapse prevention, and other programs that immediately help you and your family with problems related to alcoholism, substance abuse, and other addictions. Additionally, we go beyond other outpatient programs by treating compulsive behaviors, co-occurring mental health issues, trauma, grief, and relational problems. Since 1985, the Center for Recovering Families has been the source of hope and healing for people of all ages. Today, it's the starting point for those seeking help.
