Over 20 years ago a Napa psychotherapist and a Napa addictions counselor joined to provide a kinder more respectful approach to treatment. They wanted to make services more available and accessible, particularly to people with the greatest need and the fewest resources.
One of our mottos is… “Treating people with respect.” Our clients often succeed in part because here they are treated as worthwhile human beings who are struggling with life.
At Alternatives we believe that all of us are alike in that we are each seeking happiness and satisfaction in our lives. We succeed or fail in this effort because of what we have experienced in the past, what we know now, and how we feel about ourselves. Therefore, the service we provide at Alternatives is to give people the tools they need to build successful and responsible lives for themselves. We introduce and encourage use of the 12 step program.
Our Programs are supervised by Joni Yacoe, Executive Director, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
