Strategies for Change is not a 12-step program, its humanistic philosophy is rooted in Dr. William Glasser’s Choice Theory which supports each person in identifying his/her strengths, values emotional development; so to create a life that is purposeful and meaningful and his seven caring habits of Encouraging, Listening, Accepting, Trusting, Respecting, and Negotiating Difference and their professional pledge to be: committed, competent, innovative, collaborative, inclusive, spirited, reflective, and accountable.

All of our counselors, therapists, and psychiatrists follow a strict code of ethics and are dedicated to providing the best possible treatment and support services. Under the guidance of the Clinical Director, staff utilizes curriculum based on William Glasser’s Reality Therapy and Choice Theory concepts. Working as a team, they provide compassion, knowledge and consistency in providing the skills and support to address addiction, trauma and mental health issues. 

Coming to terms with addiction is often slow and steeped in denial. Changing behavior is not easy, yet we believe everyone has the ability to reach beyond his or her addiction. Those working on behalf of Strategies for Change are dedicated to helping people move beyond trauma and addiction, thus offering the promise of a healthier generation.
