REFUGE Results:
REFUGE Services is an intensive, short-term therapeutic intervention for youth and families experiencing distress. Observable outcomes are seen in the first session. The participant is able to make immediate changes. This builds up confidence, which improves long-term impact of the treatment on the overall behavior, emotion, or relationship. This program also increases a participant's openness to therapy in the future.

A direct referral is not necessary to schedule an appointment with REFUGE Services, participants 18 years old and older may call and schedule without doctor referral. Children 18 years and under must have parental consent.
