We know that health care doesn’t begin and end with a trip to the hospital or a visit to the doctor. That’s why Association House provides the community with services for each step along the way, including education, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation programs, in English and Spanish.

Our team is made up of licensed therapists, psychiatrists, certified substance abuse counselors, community support specialists, and nurses. Our services are designed for people facing various challenges at different points in life, whether they are children with emotional or mental health issues, adults with substance abuse and addiction problems, or families in need of support. Most of our programs are covered by Medicaid.
