“Simply because a person has a mental illness, that doesn’t have to define what their life is like.” –Garry Hammond, president and CEO, Family Guidance Center

Mental illness is a disease that’s diagnosable and manageable. In fact, mental illnesses like depression, anxiety disorder, ADHD or bipolar disorder are types of medical illness – similar to other chronic physical conditions such as high blood pressure or heart disease – that require ongoing professional treatment.

Through Family Guidance’s innovative, professional programs and services, thousands of local families have found ways to manage their diagnosis and return to productive, high-quality living. We invite you to learn more about our programs and services today.

Family Guidance 2016 Report

At Family Guidance, we believe a diagnosis doesn’t define what a person’s life will become – and we offer psychiatric services, case management, an on-site pharmacy and counseling from a knowledgeable, experienced team who cares about each person as an individual. Our on-site pharmacy is a separate entity offered through Genoa Healthcare, and is available to those who wish to use the service by choice. Family Guidance provides treatment for a range of mental illnesses like depression, post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders and bipolar disorder. We focus on helping people learn new ways to lead successful, productive lives.

No other regional resource for mental illness offers the array of services, ability and expertise of Family Guidance Center. Children with diagnoses such as ADHD, bipolar disorder, depression or mood disorders can find the help and support they need to be successful at school, plan a vibrant future and remain in their homes. Multiple levels of support are also offered to families living with a child who has an emotional or behavioral disorder, including programs that draw upon the experience of families who have been down a similar journey.

Addiction 2Substance Use Disorder Services:

Addiction is a disease of the brain that affects people from all walks of life and all social classes. Family Guidance strives to help lead people toward lifestyle changes that will enable a return to quality of life, offering both inpatient and outpatient programs alongside a social detoxification program. A key emphasis of the Substance Use Disorder Treatment Services program is learning new and healthy ways to manage addiction triggers for long-term success, and counseling and therapies are offered on an innovative, flexible schedule.
