LFS provides assistance in identifying and treating abusive and addictive behaviors as well as information, support, and coping skills.

In addition to individual, family, and group counseling, LFS offers speakers, seminars, and workshops on behavioral health issues. we work hand-in-hand with law enforcement and the judicial system.

If you, or an adult you care about, are struggling with mental health issues or substance use, review our programs to find an expert or call the nearest LFS office.
