In addition to individual and family counseling, we offer a full range of services including group counseling, couples counseling, services for children, adolescents, specially designed groups for women, men, families, court evaluations and psychopharmacological evaluations.

Programs accept self-referrals, as well as referrals from community agencies, employers, other treatment programs, physicians, other health professionals and the judicial system. BSCS also provides consultations and outreach to local industries, hospitals, courts, and schools.

HEART Program Goals
The opioid epidemic is currently overwhelming our Emergency Departments and devastating our communities. We recognize that individuals with substance use disorders need our immediate attention and services. After the individual is medically and psychiatrically cleared by the Emergency Department staff, our Recovery Coaches will meet with the individual and develop a recovery wellness plan.
The mission of the Hospital Emergency Action Recovery Coach Team is to:
- Reduce overdoses
- Make an authentic connection with the recoveree
- Provide support and resources
- Offer hope and non-judgmental support in order to reduce the need to return to the emergency department
Who are Recovery Coaches?
Recovery Coaches are individuals with lived experience who are trained through the Recovery Coach Training Academy. They are uniquely qualified to offer non-clinical support services to recoverees who are in the emergency department. Recovery Coaches act as recovery guides and connect the recoveree with a recovery community.
The Role of the Recovery Coach
A Recovery Coach will be reachable 24/7 via a hotline number and will arrive within one hour of the hospital’s request to meet with the recoveree who was treated for an opiate overdose. Introducing the recoveree to the Recovery Coach at this critical time allows the Recovery Coach an opportunity to make a connection and develop a wellness plan. The Recovery Coach will follow-up with the recoveree within 24 hours to ensure they receive the support they will need in moving forward on their path of recovery.
