Our Core Values

 

Affordable Care

 
We believe in providing professional, affordable, reliable, and accessible mental health care to individuals of all ages, couples, and families in an effort to alleviate mental health challenges and for the overall improvement of the quality of life.

 

Transformational Change

We believe in the transformational process of counseling and that real life-altering change and growth is possible. We accept and understand the hardship and difficulty of the therapeutic process and remain committed to our clients as they struggle in this time of challenge.

 

Collaborative Growth

We believe in a collaboration approach to mental health care and that change occurs in all aspects of life and not in the therapeutic relationship alone. We are committed to working with other medical, mental health, and wellness professionals for the development of health and wholeness in the client’s life.

 

Community Support

We believe in serving our local community and in the power of community support. We are dedicated to providing local services and to connecting clients with community programs to improve and enrich their lives.

Human Capital

We believe in investing in human capital, that as the quality of our clients’ lives increase, they will enrich the lives around them. We believe that as the value of human capital increases, so will the value of our communities and our society as a whole.

A STUDY OF DIFFERENCES BETWEEN COMPLETERS AND NON-COMPLETERS OF FAMILY DRUG COURT PROGRAMS

An ex post facto quantitative quasi-experimental study was utilized to determine if the number of days in treatment, the number of drug screens and the number of court appearances impact the completion of family drug court programs throughout the Southwestern United States from October 1st, 2013 to September 30th, 2015. Groups of completers and non-completers are compared to the overall number of days in treatment, the number of drug screens, and the number of court appearances through the use of a multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA). Additionally, this study seeks to advance the use of social learning theory and its application to drug and alcohol prevention throughout the mental health field, and offers to aid in the advanced education for social workers, counselors, psychologists, and case managers who serve to further the field of family drug courts.
