Alcohol and other Drug Counseling

Thought-Based Approach

Person-Centered with Support, Which Makes a Difference in Our Lives

Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations.


Lawrence touches people's lives, at a deep heart level. He reaches where you are at and brings you to a place of hope. You can heal through recovery. 

Alcohol and Drug Use Education  expands your understanding of what the substances do to your body and mind in unhealthy ways. When you learn, you can apply the tools to your life. Learning about what substances do to your body gives you insight and prepares you to take charge of your health (physical and mental health). 


No Matter who you are, you matter.

At A Better Future, we want to help you achieve your goals for sobriety, family, and health.
