SCRIPT – The Community Counseling Center of Mercer County

PERSON #1(Struggling with addiction): I told myself one joint once in a while was nothing to worry about. Now I’ve been battling with addiction for 5 years.

PERSON #2(Parent struggling with an unruly child): My daughter just wouldn’t listen to me. I wanted to be there for her, but I needed help.

PERSON #3(Adult struggling with depression): Sometimes I would just break down and cry no matter where I was. I had no motivation to work or go out with friends.

PERSON #1: But then I found the Community Counseling Center of Mercer County. They convinced me to get my family involved in multidimensional therapy to get me away from drugs.

PERSON #2: Their Parent-Child Interaction sessions were eye-opening.

PERSON #3: They helped me find the strength to continue.

PERSON #1: I feel like I can start my life again.
