Substance Abuse Counseling & Treatment

Children communicate their upset feelings in many different ways.  In the days and weeks following a traumatic event, the following reactions can occur:


  • Frequent nightmares
  • Wanting to remain close to parents
  • Irritability, fussiness, difficult to soothe
  • Bedwetting or problems with toileting
  • Easily startled, jumpy or uneasy
  • In imaginative play, repeting the traumatic events over and over
  • Appearing more quiet, withdrawn, upset
  • Tearfulness, sadness, talking about scared feelings
  • Problems paying attention or behavior problems at home or at school
  • Daydreaming or being distracted

Mission

Reaching the unreachable outreach ministires

It is the mission of this Ministry to reach the youth whose lives may be bleak or uncertain; who feel unwanted, unloved, neglected, rejected, or just wants to feel good about him/herself.













Because of direct or indirect involvement with druts, alcohol, substance abuse, and crime, many are looked upon as hopeless, helpless, doomed no good, and any other negatives that may come to mind.


It is the mission of this ministry to bridge the gap with the family and provide services and solutions, which will improve their quality of life.


Our purpose is to let the youth know and assure them that there is a better way of life, and we are here to help them find it.


Our Youth Are Our Replacement.


Let Us Help Them Be The Best That They Can Be!

​"If some of these kids had someone to talk to and to be evaluated right on the spot, a lot of things they were anticipating doing they wouldn’t do, such as the violence."
