Our Business

Our Business was created to meet the changing demands of the Substance  Abuse Prevention, Behavioral Health and Treatment field.  With the rapidly expanding needs to assist professionals in the field a high quality effective method of delivering training and consultation was developed to meet that demand.   

We have added Yoga Third Coast as an additional resource that will post monthly Yoga postures, education and support techniques.  Yoga Third Coast is additionally offered as a monthly service to support the health professional in their own Yoga practice and also as a supportive educational opportunity for the individuals they serve.
