"Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is.
 The way you cope with it is what makes the difference."


-Virginia Satir

  • Clinical Screening

    To determine whether a defendant is dependent on alcohol and/or other drugs, screening is conducted using research-based and OASAS approved screening instruments to determine the degree of severity.


  • Assessment

    If dependency is found and the individual is in need of more extensive assessment, an interview is conducted that includes a psychosocial history, mental health assessment, and extensive alcohol and substance use history.
