The Center for Prevention & Counseling
Founded over 50 years ago by people in recovery from alcohol addiction, Positive Directions today is a non-profit behavioral health organization providing a continuum of prevention, counseling, and recovery supports to individuals and families struggling with mental health or substance use disorders. We believe strongly that "prevention works, treatment is effective, and recovery is possible." Our staff is the best: talented, warm, caring, and effective. We recognize that our clients put their trust in us, and we honor your trust by giving you our very best, from individual counseling to peer support to family education to community-wide initiatives. We work to remove financial barriers and to provide supports beyond clinical treatment to ensure that individuals and families can lead healthy, successful lives. Connect with us!
