"The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases. When I look at the world I'm pessimistic, but when I look at people I am optimistic." -Carl Jung

Services Offered

Recovery Counseling

Anew Alternative offers individual and group counseling in an outpatient setting to help clients develop skills they need to navigate their path toward recovery. We believe coping skills for our clients include ways to combat stigma, learning to tolerate uncomfortable situations, and responding rather than reacting to situations. We do not teach distraction. Drugs and alcohol already do that. We want to help our clients learn focus; specifically, the focus to improve all aspects their lives in each moment. This way you stay in control of your own life.


Anew Alternative offers consultations and assessments to objectively discern client issues related to substance use. Our assessments comply with guidelines from many community partners including courts, DCBS, Probation & Parole, employers, and others. Anew Alternative has a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor on staff to ensure assessments are completed in accordance with state regulations and best practice.

Outpatient Groups

The group programming of Anew Alternative is compatible with a variety of client perspectives on substance use issues including harm reduction, disease model, and medication-assisted treatment. We believe people in society at large sometimes stigmatize those who struggle with substance use. When working toward recovery, at least we can work toward not stigmatizing others who are involved in treatment.

Individual Counseling

Anew Alternative offers individualized treatment for issues related to substance use. You set your goals and we try to help you figure out how to reach them. We want to treat individuals for the underlying reasons for problematic substance use, not just based on the substance itself. We know sometimes life feels worse during or after change from familiar things, even if they are negatively impacting us. Anew Alternatives believes in exploring these feelings and helping clients regain a sense of emotional security.

Family Counseling

Anew Alternative understands that sometimes substance use affects an entire family. This may be due to the use of one family member, enabling, or multiple persons within the family using substances and having negative consequences. Whatever the need, Anew Alternative believes in keeping families united where possible and assisting clients in maintaining precious relationships within their family. Losing connections hurts. We want you to keep connections important to you.

Career Counseling

We believe that recovery extends far past sobriety or the number days since relapse. Our career counseling services provide an opportunity to reintegrate one's self into the world of professional employment. We have partnered with companies all across the spectrum who are willing to offer a second chance to our clients.

Interview Preparation

You know you're the right fit for the job; you just have to get your foot in the door. Anew Alternative's interview preparation workshops are designed to get you ready for the most common interview scenarios. Aside from mock interviews, we also offer resume generation services to help you get noticed by prospective employers. We believe that self actualization is crucial to the recovery process, and a fulfilling, worthwile occupation is a key step in that process.

Financial Coaching

We're in it for the long haul, and we want you to be as well. Our financial coaching sessions are designed to help you build a strong and lasting financial foundation. From budgeting workshops to debt analysis to assistance in setting up and balancing a bank account, we offer a variety of financial life-skills tools catered to your specific needs.
