Pathways Developmental Services is an independent mental health and wellness company, specializes in counseling for all behavioral health issues, chemical dependency diagnoses and strengthening families.

Pathways Developmental Services, a private for-profit, Happy Family Playing Together community based mental health corporation, committed to assisting children and families by providing competent counseling to all individuals. Pathways Developmental Services, Inc. seeks to fulfill its mission through partnerships with other human service programs such as Community Service Boards, schools, courts, probation officers, churches, hospitals, and various other agencies in the community.

Pathways Developmental Services Inc. believes that counseling and treatment should be administered in a therapeutically trusting environment that enhances the personal dignity of children and families. We strive to represent the family's wishes, individual goals and maximize opportunities for involvement and self-determination in planning and following through with home-based services as well as utilizing the Tele-Counseling to enhance services. We are committed to maintaining the integrity of the family.

Pathways Developmental Services, Inc. prefers to provide services that focus on the entire family unit rather than on individuals. This goal is to empower and strengthen families, prevent family fragmentation and ensure children and adolescents remain in their homes. The family unit is a powerful social institution that should be protected, supported, nourished and maintained whenever possible. The care and treatment of children and families in their own homes offers a comprehensive therapeutic advantage that cannot be offered in traditional office based therapy sessions.

Pathways Developmental Services Inc. provides counseling and treatment approaches developed at the least restrictive level of care deemed appropriate for the client.  

Our counselors emphasize working with juveniles and families Our Teamto seek positive solutions to issues.  Our training in the structural family approach helps us view each juvenile and family individually and develop unique service plans for each client by building on their identified strengths.

Pathways Developmental Services, Inc. will implement a balanced approach in the design and delivery of treatment services, which includes consideration for community protection, accountability, and competency development.  Our approach utilizes a system of accountability within a context that allows juveniles to acquire the knowledge, skills, and abilities to function in a socially acceptable manner within the community.  Ultimately, Pathways Developmental Services, Inc.  will develop competence in our youth that will provide each with positive alternatives to past choices.
