Scheduling an Appointment

To start your journey towards healing and recovery at Altruism Counseling Services, your first step is to schedule an appointment with our licensed clinician, Dede Stratton. She will conduct a comprehensive psychosocial assessment to gain insights into various aspects of your life, including addiction, mental health issues, and any court-mandated evaluations. Once your needs are thoroughly understood, Dede will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals and circumstances. Through our individual, group, and intensive outpatient counseling services, we employ evidence-based practices to facilitate positive change in your life. Whether you're grappling with substance abuse, mental health disorders, or navigating life transitions, rest assured that our compassionate team is here to support you every step of the way.

Psychosocial Assessment

We offer assessments to anyone who has an addiction, anger management issue, mental health concern, or needs DUI classes. We provide assessments for individuals who need medically assisted treatment (MAT) such as Suboxone or Vivitrol. We provide assessments to the court system for individuals in drug court, probation and parole and those who have lost custody of their children to DCBS. We also provide assessments for individuals who have been charged with a DUI or for clients court ordered by Casey's Law. In most cases Casey's Law evaluation are covered by insurance.

Treatment Plan

We believe you should be involved in the development of your own treatment plan. A treatment plan consists of goals and objectives to meet those goals. You and your counselor will develop those together, so you are motivated to achieve them. These goals can be both short term and long term. Ultimately, the hope is that upon achieving your goals you will experience a change in personality and become who you want to be.


We offer outpatient, intensive outpatient program (IOP), and targeted case management services for individuals struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. Our treatment practices are evidence-based, following guidelines from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Our therapeutic approaches include 12-Step Facilitation, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. Additionally, we provide support with obtaining health insurance, employment, education, and housing.
