What We Do
Using state-of-the-art screening tools, we ensure that youth seen at the Lucine Center receive the most appropriate and effective treatments.
All of our services begin with a standardized assessment that allows us to better understand our client’s experiences, needs, and strengths.
Our goal is to not only reduce current distress, but also ensure that our clients go on to lead healthy, happy productive lives long after treatment is over.
