San Juan Counseling was formed by the San Juan County Commissioners as a Special Service District in 1998 to perform mental health and substance abuse treatment services throughout the county. We offer individualized treatment for those seeking substance abuse and mental health treatment. The Center is funded through federal, state, and local funds. We bill third party insurance and Medicaid to reduce costs to clients. San Juan Counseling is dedicated to helping people rebuild their lives and reach their full potential.
