Call them and they will gladly talk to you and your family about what they can do. The sliding scale fees make it all affordable too.


Parents, if parenting your youth is a challenge, consider enrolling in a Parent Education Workshop Series called Tools for Change Parent Workshops.  Many parents who have had extreme difficulty with their child have learned effective prevention and intervention techniques to help their children make better choices.  This local series is only 4 weeks. It's targeted at adolescents - grades 7-12.   Right now it is only offered in English, but they are working to get it in Spanish as well.  Another program in Alameda County is Parent Project.  Check it out at www.parentproject.com
