Treatment strategies are determined on an individual basis
via comprehensive assessments or substance abuse evaluations. During
this stage, clients meet with a counselor to discuss their presenting
needs (biological, psychological and social.) Individuals with issues
surrounding substance abuse will also be assessed using criteria of the
American Society of Addictions Medicine (ASAM). Each client is admitted
or referred to another agency according to this assessment.
Building on strengths, the adolescent may work with a
counselor who will help him or her develop new skills to address
specific emotional or behavioral challenges
Recognizing the importance of the family as a resource and
foundation for the adolescent’s positive change, the Department of Human
Services provides family counseling which assists in the development of
goals and strategies for family growth.
The Student Counselor Program was developed to enhance
and support student achievement in the school environment. Student
Counselors provide in-school assessment, crisis intervention, counseling
and referral services to any student who may be experiencing personal,
family and/or peer difficulties. Our goal is to support students and
prevent personal challenges from interfering with their school success. Counselors work in the Intermediate School and the three elementary schools.
Student Counselors work collaboratively with
administrators, guidance counselors, teachers, the school nurse, other
school personnel and parents to identify and assess areas of need.
Students may be referred by school staff, parents, or other students, or
they may self-refer. Parents who have concerns about any non-academic
issues may contact the Student Counselors directly.
