Driving With Care

Our 6-week Driving with Care course explores negative thought processes and emotions that influence our decisions and unwanted behaviors.

This course meets criteria for a Level 1 driving with care course as required by courts and vehicle services.

We understand that mental illness and substance use aren’t the only things that can hinder personal growth and we aim to help our clients navigate obstacles and overcome challenges in their lives.

Cognitive Skills

Our 6-hour Cognitive Skills course aims to increase insight into problematic thinking patterns and how they impact emotions, feelings, and behaviors.

This course assists to increase thought management and emotional regulation skills.

Chemical Health Assessments

Often referred to as Rule 25 assessments

We provide comprehensive chemical health assessments that generally take 90 minutes to 2 hours

Because we provide assessments outside of a treatment center, we are able to recommend appropriate services specific to client’s needs

Our 6-hour Drug Education class aims to provide support to those who struggle with substances to gain an understanding of addiction and drug abuse.

This course aims to provide support for those who may not need treatment, but have experienced consequences of use or those who would like to learn more about these subjects.
