Our Counseling Program, staffed by licensed and trained professionals, focuses on unifying and strengthening troubled families. We see over 500 clients a year who would otherwise not get help because of financial hardship. Many of our clients have children in our other programs and need help to resolve their conflicts. Others are referred by pastors, private counselors, and friends. We ask them to pay on a sliding scale based on income.

"This program is my gold. I was headed toward death. Now I have hope and health and life." - Tony
Advent has an innovative live-in treatment program for chemically dependent teenagers, the first of its kind in Santa Clara County. We also provide help for any accompanying emotional disturbances and struggles resulting from the effects of sexual and physical abuse.

We strive to maintain a family-type atmosphere and to develop within each youth a commitment to lasting personal recovery. Our staff live with the kids twenty-four hours a day and provide treatment services which include: daily group counseling, individual attention from a trained therapist, drug and alcohol education, on-grounds schooling, a spiritual focus to recovery, and Twelve Step meetings.
