We understand these frustrating and confusing issues. Programs for Change will assess the whole person and identify when alcohol or substance use has become a dependency. We offer compassionate and non-judgmental guidance to help people break free and live the life they’ve always intended. And we offer access to a wide range of specialty medical care available to program participants. Learn more about alcohol and substance abuse recovery.
