We are a non-profit agency that supports change in the lives of individuals, their families and communities related to substance use and gambling.


What We Do

We support change in the lives of individuals, their families and communities related to substance use and gambling. We promote a safe and supportive environment where we work with you to develop a treatment plan.


Who Can We Help?

We use a harm-reduction approach to addiction treatment. This means that we equally support those who wish to decrease their substance use or gambling as we do those who wish to quit entirely.


Get Started!

We understand that substance abuse and problem gambling are the result of personal lifestyle issues and coping strategies. We can help. Click below to learn about how to get support.
