What We Do Disabilities

Assisting the Disabled

Disabilities come in many forms — both visible and invisible. We offer a network of specialized disability support services to help seniors adjusting to blindness, developmentally disabled children, teens and adults dealing with alcohol and substance abuse, and those with behavioral and emotional challenges.

Our Programs and Services

Addiction is a complex condition requiring compassionate physical and emotional rehabilitation. We provide alcohol and substance abuse treatment and support for those seeking recovery and the families who love them. Our programs, ranging from outpatient clinics and support groups, to inpatient recovery programs, are designed to help individuals and their families through the recovery process.

We provide a comprehensive continuum of services to assist individuals suffering from the disease of addiction, those in recovery who need additional support, and the family members and loved ones who support them. Using tested and proven practices tailored to meet each individual’s needs, we offer confidential support with dignity and respect.

Our prevention service programs in school and community settings for youth and parents promote healthy development among children, adolescents and young adults. Understanding and identifying the behaviors associated with addiction can help families, schools, and communities learn what they can do to reduce or avoid substance use/abuse.

We offer a range of housing options for those struggling with mental illness. Our supportive, affordable, small community residences offer closely supervised group living arrangements for people with severe mental illness. We also offer apartments and single rooms with support staff readily available for higher functioning individuals.

Our agencies provide compassionate, professional care to individuals whose needs are too complex to be met at home. Our residences offer a range of support and services to children with serious illnesses and care for adults with developmental disabilities to promote healthy lives. Eligibility for many of these programs is determined by city and state regulations.

Taking prompt action with an early diagnosis and intervention can change a child’s future.

I share my story with the kids because I want them to know that I’ve been there, too, that they can trust me.
