Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood disorders found in the nation. Scientists are not sure what causes ADHD but believe genetics, environmental factors, and even nutrition may play a part.

People who live with ADHD may:

  • Become easily distracted, forgetful, and miss details
  • Have difficulty following directions
  • Become quickly bored with tasks
  • Have trouble completing and turning in homework
  • Fidget and squirm in their seats
  • Talk nonstop

If you think you or someone you love just can’t focus, find help and hope by contacting one of these local organizations.

Our services are known for consistency, clinical efficacy, and our commitment to serving rural facilities.

Because many facilities operate in rural areas where behavioral health provider shortages exist, and distance stands in the way of consistent care, we overcome these challenges through our Tele-Behavioral health program that mirrors our on-site programs.

Each provider is hand selected and trained to provide tele-behavioral health services. Providers interact with the residents through live, high definition audio and video equipment that comes at no cost to your facility. With telemedicine, research has found satisfaction to be high among residents. Tele-behavioral health is equivalent to on-site care in diagnostic accuracy, treatment effectiveness, quality of care and patient and family satisfaction.

Heart 2 Heart is a ministry of San Antonio’s First Baptist Church and was founded on two simple principles:

  • We all experience brokenness sometime in our life.
  • There is healing in God’s Word.

Typical Support and Recovery Groups:

Groups typically include those listed below but can vary. Registration is required for each group.

Divorce Care
Will anyone accept you after your divorce? This group will. Take steps toward courage and wholeness with those who know how deeply divorce can cut.

Considering Forgiveness
Does forgiveness mean excusing harmful behavior? Is forgiveness necessary? Explore these difficult questions in a group that won't insult your dignity by minimizing or downplaying the hurt you have known.

Grief Share
Grief is a burden too heavy for anyone’s shoulders to bear alone. In this fellowship, you’ll find a group that stands by one another when the loss you’ve known bends you to the ground.

Men's Freedom Group
(meets year-round on Tuesdays)
We are a Christ-centered, 12-step self-help group providing a safe and confidential setting (apart from other H2H groups) for men recovering from sexual addiction. Our goal is to provide you with the support of fellow recovery travelers with once-weekly meetings year-round.

Journey to Restoration
This caring ministry creates a safe space for those who during childhood were abused, sexually, physically, emotionally, verbally or by neglect.

Cancer Care
Facilitated by those who know cancer firsthand, the cancer support group aims to become a place of welcome, safety, and tenderness for you in a harsh and frightening time.

All groups are open to the community. You do not need to be a member of the church.

Communities In Schools programs surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our evidence-based approach, adapted to meet each community’s unique needs, is the basis for our success.

Basic Needs: A student cannot focus in the classroom if he or she is hungry, cold or tired, or cannot see the board. Site coordinators see to it that students' basic needs are met each day.

Enrichment: Our Site coordinators enroll students in a wide variety of after-school and summer programs, field trips and youth conferences to help them gain experience that is essential to meeting college and career goals.

Academic Assistance: Our site coordinators work hard to ensure that students have the resources to progress academically. From providing students with tutors to finding and creating quiet spaces where students can study, we do whatever it takes to create an optimal learning environment for our students.

Life Skills: Through one-on-one workshops, team building, and guest speakers, we work with students to develop social-emotional learning, character education, social skills building, and conflict resolution.

Behavioral Interventions: Many of our students face and overcome difficult obstacles in their lives. However, their survival skills aren’t always effective in the classroom or in the workplace. Our program teaches students positive ways to cope with anger, conflict resolution, and other strategies to keep them focused on school.

Family Engagement: Site coordinators connect families with counselors and social workers to make sure that home is a healthy, nurturing environment where a student can feel safe.

This program is for students at CAST Tech High School.

People who have developed an addiction may be unaware that it is out of control, which is why counseling is an essential part of working through and managing this condition. An addiction of any sort can be exhausting and one should never go through the recovery process alone.

Many treatment plans focus on talk therapy and behavior therapy and can be performed in a group or through one-on-one sessions. During these sessions, patients analyze the reasons behind their addiction(s), what triggers are, and what helped them control impulses in the past. Patients also learn coping skills so they can manage their compulsions without relapsing.

Common addictions include but are not limited to:

  • Drug or alcohol abuse
  • Gambling
  • Internet
  • Shopping
  • Food

Couples often seek couples or marriage counseling when the relationship is at a standstill or unsure whether or not the relationship is worth salvaging. This type of therapy can benefit families with children who have been affected by relationship issues such as divorce, and confront the source of the conflict.

Treatment techniques may include the following depending on the therapist:

  • Gottman Method
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Emotionally Focused Therapy
  • Positive Psychology
  • Imago Relationship Therapy
  • Analyzing Your Communication
  • Getting to the root of the problem
  • Enhancing Intimacy
  • Individual Counseling
  • Couple Retreat

When a relationship is showing signs of addiction, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, or severe depression, seek guidance from a counselor immediately, for your safety and your partner.

Intimacy problems widely occur behind a variety of closed doors. Conflicts may include a loss of harmony between the sheets, a lack of sexual desire between either partners, or failure in communication. There are often psychological factors that may contribute to a sexual disorder such as erectile dysfunction, or a lowered desire after a new mother has given birth. Intimacy issues are common, but if one or more become severe and there is no resolution in sight, it may be time to seek therapy for guidance.

Steps to take for treating intimacy issues begin with:

•    Psychosexual Therapy: this technique allows couples to express themselves in a safe environment with a trusted and supportive professional.

•    Relationship Counseling: healthy relationships require strong connections and time to build trust. Whatever the issue may be, a counselor can work with individuals together or separately to overcome the problem.
