We are continuing to see intakes in person AND via telehealth (Zoom). We are continuing our telehealth Group, Face to Face, and Education classes through the month of May.

We recommend joining the meeting via laptop or tablet. If you must use your phone we recommend you have a stand of some sort–it is very tiring to hold your phone up for two hours. Some participants have a better audio experience using headphones with a built in microphone.
