Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Los Alamos Family Council's vision is for people to live healthy, well-adjusted lives. In order to help make this vision a reality, our Counseling Center seeks to treat those needing mental and behavioral health assistance. Our Youth Activity Centers seek to develop youth resiliency to help prevent the future need for intervention.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Counseling Center

The Counseling Center is our original program. In our Counseling Center we provide mental health therapy and treatment to individuals, couples, and families. Our therapists use a wide variety of therapy modalities and techniques to assist our clients.
We also provide an Intensive Outpatient Program for substance abuse treatment.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Family relationships

The Youth Activity Centers (YAC) are operated on contract with Los Alamos County.

Founded bin 1982 by the Los Alamos Council on Alcohol and Substance Abuse (LACASA), the YACs merged into Los Alamos Family Council when LACASA merged into Los Alamos Family Council in 1997. Funding transitioned from state granting through LACASA to funding from Los Alamos County around this time.

The YACs serve as a free after-school and summer program for youth living in or attending school in Los Alamos County, grades 3rd through 8th. There are two YACs: one in Los Alamos (in the Community Building next to Ashley Pond) and one in White Rock (behind the White Rock Library).

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Los Alamos Family Council believes that through prevention and treatment efforts we can improve the lives of those seeking help. We believe that this help will enable more members of our community to be well-adjusted and live happier lives.

Los Alamos Family Council implements differing strategies in our programs.

In our Counseling Center, our therapists utilize a variety of treatment modalities to meet the needs of our clients. These treatment modalities rely on industry best practices and are evidence-based. Our therapists engage in on-going professional development and continuing education in order to keep current in their skills.

Our Youth Activity Centers help to develop youth resiliency utilizing models such as the 40 Developmental Assets.

Los Alamos Family Council employs numerous licensed mental health therapists to meet the demand for mental and behavioral health treatment. We have been providing these services since 1962!

We also employ several team members, trained in the 40 Developmental Assets, at the Youth Activity Centers. We have been providing this service since 1982!

Our Counseling Center serves over 200 different clients a year - counting a family or couple only once. Since 1962, that is over 11,000 clients at a minimum!

Our Youth Activity Centers track daily use statistics. We have had over 100,000 visits in the last 9 years, with more than 300 members each year.

Our future is bright! The Youth Activity Centers are contracted to operate for several years to come. The Counseling Center has been growing in the number of therapists and continues to offer growth opportunities for new and seasoned therapists alike.
