About

Addiction is a Disease. Many people afflicted with this Disease have been shamed, suffered horrible consequences, lost families and self-respect. I want to help educate each person who questions what is wrong with them and wants help. There is help out there for each person and all the families who are looking for answers.
My 30 plus years of experience as a Substance Use Disorder Certified Counselor, I bring with me my personal journey from my education, but my personal story of addiction, abuse and Grief. I have developed a unique way to walk someone through present or past grief issues . Clients with mental personality disorders I am Certified in CBT and DBT therapy.
To those who are suffering and believe they are bad,these are the words you heard over and over from caregivers while growing up. You are not bad you just have a really awful Disease that wants to kill you. I can help you! If you are suffering a loss, please call so I can share my experiences and what support is available to you.

Frances Jacobs's Groups

Grief Recovery Group, Relinquishment Trauma

Grief Recovery Group walks individuals through different stages of their grief using specific tools while working as a group to share experiences. This group has a facilitator at all times. The Relinquishment Trauma Group helps children who were adopted at birth into wonderful homes and continue to feel this empty hole inside themselves. As these children mature many find themselves involved with drugs and alcohol.
