Partners for Change


The Partners for Change project is an innovative, research-based psychotherapy and residential service designed around a Client-Directed, Outcome-Informed Therapy™ framework. The project serves adults who wish to make a positive change relevant to their substance use and co-occurring mental health issues.

Our staff is made up of seasoned psychotherapists with graduate degrees, licensed, certified and trained in a variety of research-based therapies in addition to the CDOI therapy approach.

The project is state licensed and funded through a grant from the Department of Children and Families District 9 Substance Abuse and Mental Health office.

Clients may utilize private insurance or third party payers if they pre-qualify, or they may make other arrangements for payment through the project office. Fees are based upon a sliding scale.

"The most important thing for me was feeling safe and having people that really listened and respected what I had to say about what might work for me."
