Board of Directors
EXPERTISE. DEDICATION. RESPONSIVENESS.
Since 1970, our dedicated staff has ensured accessible, culturally competent, individualized, and cost effective services for our clients and the community. We understand that each person has unique strengths and we help to build upon those strengths. By emphasizing trust, respect, confidentiality, communication, and compassion, we continuously strive to improve the quality of client care, while anticipating changing community needs. We provide group and individual treatment in both Spanish and English. We are a dynamic and responsive agency, committed to you!
We believe that addictions are biological, psychological, social, and behavioral disorders which can adversely affect a person’s physical, psychological, economic, spiritual, and social well-being. We also recognize that mental health disorders and criminal behaviors are often closely associated with each other and with substance use. As a result, we offer multiple treatment modalities, using evidenced-based approaches to assist every client in developing cognitive, emotional, behavioral and social resources to live healthy lives.
Our expert staff is trained and ready to provide help and support for:
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
Perception Programs promotes wellness through innovative and holistic behavioral health care for individuals and our community.
