=================================

 
HCAMS provides services to individuals with substance abuse and other behavioral health problems that are affecting their work, health, and/or personal lives. Our services include assessment, intervention, placement, case management, and recovery advocacy.
 
Sometimes the people who are having problems seek our assistance directly. More often, we receive requests for help from those around the person, such as family members, a union, a church, an employer, or a physician. We provide support, education, and guidance to the individuals as well as to those who refer them for assistance. We focus not only in the placement of those who need treatment but also in advocating for their employment, legal, and medical rights.
 
The problems we address include:
  • Stress-related conditions
  •  Depression and anxiety disorders
  • Alcohol and other drug dependencies
  • Addictions of all kinds
  •  Eating disorders
  • Job stress related to a medical condition
  •  Low energy / Sleeplessness
  •  Prescription medication dependency
  •  Chronic physical or emotional pain
  • Adolescent and/or family problems
  • Dysfunctional/alcoholic families
  •  Excessive weight loss and gain
