Seattle Counseling Service Programs
SCS offers comprehensive mental health care and addiction services focusing in the following areas:
Mental Health Counseling
SCS provides an array of mental health services for members of the LGBT communities and their significant others. We help individuals and families with everything from single episode to mild to severe persistent mental illness. Treatment is tailored to meet the specific needs of the individual, drawing from a variety of treatment approaches with the option of on-site psychiatric medication management when applicable.
SCS offers a complete chemical dependency outpatient treatment program. We can help you recover from your addiction to alcohol or drugs in an atmosphere free from homophobia, prejudice, fear, ignorance and heterosexism. We believe that in order to get the best treatment for chemical dependency, you must have a space in which you feel safe enough to be completely honest and secure in not being judged for your sexuality and gender expression.
Project NEON (Needle Exchange and Sex Education Outreach Network)
Project NEON is a harm-reduction program for gay and bi male users of crystal methamphetamine, both active users and in recovery. This program strives to raise awareness about the links between crystal meth and health concerns, provide options for reducing the risks of use, and for managing or stopping use.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
We have recently added a new position for a HIV and Hepatitis C specialist in order to increase outreach and services for community members with HIV/Hep C.
We are currently in need of additional financial support as we work to upgrade our office to electronic health records.
