Personal Frontiers joined the Chamber and had their ribbon cutting on April 5th, at their offices on 310 S. Miller Avenue in Gillette. The non-profit helps adults and families deal with substance abuse, and has been operating in Campbell County since 1976.
“It’s about empowering and treating the whole person,” says Executive Director Donna Morgan. “We don’t ever try to turn anyone away.”
There are three counselors and several others on staff to help the community. They don’t choose clients based on income level, and were recently accepted to MAP International, which is a Medical Assistance Program. Personal Frontiers also works with Juvenile & Family Drug Court. They are currently looking to hire even more therapists and office help.
“I’m licensed to do dual diagnosis,” says Clinical Supervisor Marty Huckins. “I can diagnose and treat both mental health and substance abuse.”
The other two counselors at Personal Frontiers are Provisional Professional Counselors, which means soon they will be fully licensed to treat patients. They also do Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, which is a treatment designed to alleviate distress associated with traumatic memories.
They are open 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. on Monday through Thursday. They are open 8:30 a.m. until Noon on Friday, but do not see clients on that day. There are also group therapy sessions that take place after 5:30 p.m. Click here to see their Chamber listing.
