Our Programs

  • Adults With
    HIV / AIDS

    Living with HIV/AIDS compromises the entire physical as well as the emotional, psychosocial and spiritual self. Persons living with HIV/AIDS battle prejudices and abandonment by society, close family and friends.
  • At-Risk Children and Adolescents

    ATOC works with children and adolescents struggling with a range of challenges resulting from family, peer, school and other societal pressures.
  • Hospitalized Adolescents

    The challenges of normal adolescence compounded by a complex medical/rehabilitative condition, such as loss of a limb or traumatic brain injury, can have an impact on social and emotional development.
  • Substance Abuse Groups

    Untreated, substance abuse can lead to severe psychological and physiological illness and, in some cases, even death.
  • Survivors of Torture

    ATOC provides group therapy treatment for individuals who have endured torture in their country of origin because of their sexual orientation, political or religious beliefs.
  • Women and Men Survivors of Sexual Trauma

    An ongoing group for women and men survivors of sexual trauma provides participants an opportunity to connect with others and counteract the feelings of isolation that are common for this population.
  • Women’s and Men’s Veterans Groups

    Several different groups meet the needs of both male and female veterans confronting issues surrounding re-entry to civilian life, post-traumatic stress, military sexual trauma, substance abuse and homelessness.
  • 9-11 Survivors

    Although more than ten years have passed since the events of September 11, 2001, the effects are still being felt by thousands of local residents, area workers, rescue workers and many others.
