You can choose from the certified community based providers listed below and call for an appointment. You also can talk to a parent/caregiver, teacher, social worker or friend who can help connect you to one of the providers. A counselor will talk with you about your needs and help choose a program that fits you. If indicated, a counselor also will make a referral to mental health treatment as addiction and mental health challenges often go hand in hand.
