Maricopa County Counseling Services, Inc. was founded for the sole purpose of providing individuals and families, whose lives have been negatively impacted by substance abuse and/or domestic violence, an opportunity to make positive lifestyle changes.

Our goal is to offer programs that will motivate our clients to make positive choices in their lives, which will change the current statistics and have a positive effect on the community at large.
We offer a wide range of programs for those referred by the legal justice system, court ordered D.U.I. services and confidential, individual and couples sessions for persons who are self-referred and desire help in learning to cope with their problems. Our therapists utilize a cognitive-behavioral approach to problem-solving.
