At Family Counseling Services of Athens they provide counseling and intervention services for those who are affected by substance abuse or the more frightening specter of dependence of addiction. Their counseling can add insight, support, and education as well as provide effective strategies for managing triggers and other factors influencing the continued harmful use of alcohol and other drugs. Their services include individual and family counseling as well as structured groups that combine both educational and group support. They also utilize community self-help groups as an adjunct to treatment. A unique aspect of their mission is to offer a reduced or "sliding" fee scale for those with a high insurance deductible or without insurance. These reduced fees are made possible through a grant from the United Way of Northeast Georgia. They will be glad to verify your insurance for you and to establish a fee prior to your first scheduled appointment.
