What Our Clients Say

Take a look at program feedback from our previous clients.

"I am truly grateful for Second Chance Counseling and everyone who helped my wife turn her life around. From the director Bernie, her counselor Brett, and everyone else in that office that was part of her recovery, you were all so incredibly helpful! My wife is living a healthy alcohol-free life. Thank you all for getting my wife back, I will be forever grateful."


"To say I was less than thrilled about joining the program at SCC was an understatement; little did I know, I was walking into a much needed (and now welcomed) support system and friendship I'm confident in saying saved my life. Being a part of the program helped me realize I was not alone. I related to stories of feeling low in normal life, and only becoming alive once a substance was consumed. My counselor Brett gave me the tools/support needed to change my behaviors for the better. I couldn't be more grateful for meeting him and knowing he truly cares for my wellbeing."


"I’ve gone through several counselors and was about ready to give up when a friend referred me to Second Chance Counseling Center and I first met with Bernie who then introduced me to Brett who became my IOP counselor My life has truly changed as a result of the help I received. I can say without a doubt Don’t give up…not all counselors are the same. I just wish I would have called these guys several years ago. The financial investment I made in myself was by far worth every single penny."
