About 2nd Chance Counseling Service Online Addiction Therapy Provider

We believe that patients deserve that 2nd, 3rd, 10th, ?, chance. As long as you are willing to put in the work 2nd Chance Counseling will be there to help.

It is important to have counseling when you are making changes in your life. In the past we are limited by our schedule, work, family commitments, and the list goes on.

We provide an easy solution that was just as cost efficient as current counseling solutions, and provide more flexibility, ease and choice for patients.

The use of telemedicine counseling can now provide all of these solutions to patients who are ready to make changes in their life.

I truly believe this is the future of treatment. We will continue to work hard to make treatment available to anyone who needs it. Everyone deserves there 2nd chance!

All of our therapists are experienced in addiction and state licensed.
