EMAGES offers its 12-step-inclusive services specifically tailored to people of color.

Both individual and group sessions are provided to adults only, including specialized groups for pregnant women.
Treatment and Staff
Substance abuse treatment at EMAGES begins with an assessment and evaluation from which the treatment plan is devised. Treatment plans include individual and group sessions at an individualized frequency and duration. Discharge planning and basic aftercare services, as well as contingency crisis intervention are included in the plan. CBT-based group sessions take place during the week based on clients’ availability, with gender-specific groups offered for those who prefer. An individual meeting with a counselor usually happens at least once a month. Usually clients take part in an hour-long session, one to two days a week for as long a period as may prove necessary or is dictated by court order. On-site 12-step meetings are offered on Fridays at 7pm, but are not always required.
EMAGES employs three mental health counselors and a registered nurse. Several Spanish-speaking staff are available for those who need bilingual services.
DUI education classes are available for the benefit of clients who have been court-ordered into treatment. Apart from substance abuse treatment services, EMAGES also offers DUI evaluations, domestic violence education and treatment, as well as outpatient sex offender evaluations and treatment, anger management and outpatient mental health counseling.
EMAGES has a solid decade of experience providing substance abuse treatment that specializes in culturally specific services. All substance abuse treatment services are offered for the one-time assessment fee of $50. This an excellent option for those seeking affordable treatment with a culturally sensitive approach.
