Once the counselor and client collaboratively agree upon goals and a treatment plan, their work together begins. An individual counseling session generally takes approximately one hour. The length of time that they work together varies depending upon many factors. Due to the consistent vision and far reaching plan of Orland Township's Board of Trustees to continue to deliver quality, yet affordable services to the residents of Orland Township, the fee for services is tax dollar subsidized and based upon income and number of persons dependent upon that income.
To start the process, call the office between the normal business hours of 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Friday. Appointments are required and groups are run on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings as well.
