Additional Resources

– Resource List

This page provides a starting point for those needing to access or learn more about options for help with addiction and emotional health concerns. The majority of the below are listed because I have had multiple clients report good experiences, successful treatment outcomes and they have worked collaboratively with me to provide individualized, professional and appropriate care. In many cases, I have sat down and met with these individuals and/or facility leaders personally to discuss their treatment philosophy and applied approaches as well as their commitment to their clients. In some cases, I have worked with or for a listed resource and have experienced observed them in practice and over time.

*Not all experiences or needs are the same.

*Please do your own due diligence and find the resources that are best for your needs.
