Pathway Family Services


pathwayThe Basics

Pathway Family Services, established in 2003, is a nonprofit headquartered in Topeka, Kansas that offers behavioral health services including psychiatric residential treatment and outpatient substance abuse treatment for adults and adolescents. Pathway also runs an independent living program and has foster care services.

Treatment and Staff

Taurence Minikwu, the lead counselor for the outpatient substance abuse treatment program, has worked in the mental health field for 10 years. A CADC and Master’s-level counselor, he specializes in addiction. He does not use a 12-step curriculum, preferring to treat clients with evidence-based practices like CBT and DBT.

Minikwu oversees all three of Pathway’s outpatient locations, in Topeka, Wichita and Kansas City, traveling between the facilities each week. The frequency of group and individual therapy as well as overall length of treatment are determined by the client’s individualized treatment plan. Level One outpatient includes eight to 12 weeks of individual therapy and and 60- to 90-minute groups once or twice a week. Minikwu also treats clients with co-occurring disorders. These clients begin at Level Two, which has a more intensive counseling schedule.

Pathway Family Services is certified for foster care, residential treatment and independent living services.


There are special services available through the KanCare program for families and youth, including parent management training, physicals (the Kan-B-Healthy program) and treatment for sexual behavioral issues.

The Psychiatric Residential Treatment Program is reserved for clients with mental health and behavioral issues rather than substance abuse issues. Psychiatric treatment staff include licensed therapists, Master’s-level social workers and certified counselors.

Other outpatient facilities in Kansas City and Wichita are available through referrals.

In Summary

The outpatient substance abuse treatment program at Pathway Family provides clients with an informal, relaxed and comfortable environment to work on recovery.
