Meet Our Therapists

As an organization we know the community and have been counseling here for over forty years since 1971. We work as a multi-disciplinary team to address your needs and ensure privacy and confidentiality. Clinical services are available to Delaware and Morrow County residents on a sliding fee scale based on annual income and family size. We are a participating provider for many of the major health insurance plans. Many other insurance plans allow individuals to go outside of their network for care and services, and reimburse them following treatment. Please call us for more information about affording your treatment care.

Common Obstacles to Recovery

• Ignoring The Facts | Not understanding or believing the facts about chemical dependency and the effect it can have on you • Denial | The unwillingness to admit to yourself the extent of your usage or the problems it is causing • Shame | The feeling of isolation and fear that prevents you from seeking the help that you need • Peer Groups | As others who care about you become more concerned, you find yourself spending more time with those who "understand" you and encourage your substance abuse • Emotional Loss of Control | You take out your own feelings of anger and isolation on family, friends, and co-workers • Enablers/Codependents | Others who try to help you by cleaning up your messes—legal, home, work, physical—although well intentioned, keep you from understanding the full extent of your problem • Personal Exception | Believing that you are "not like all those other people" and that your case is special and different
