Alcohol and Addiction Support
Welcome to Alcohol and Addiction Support. We know that it is not easy to ask for help. Today, you are one step closer to achieving recovery from alcohol and substance abuse.
At Alcohol and Addiction Support, our goal is to help you learn how to function in your life free from the use of alcohol and/or drugs. We can help you in ways other treatment centers cannot. We provide you with access to your counselor when you need it. Whether you are in a crisis, experiencing cravings, or are simply in need of support - we are one call, text, or email away.
Sartin understands not only the clinical side of addiction, but has
first-hand experience with the personal struggles of recovery. Her
experience stands out in the field of substance abuse counseling.
Jennifer is devoted to helping others achieve a solid, lasting recovery
through proper guidance and support. Jennifer received her Bachelors
degree in Social Science from the University of California at Irvine,
and her Master of Science in Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy
from the University of Phoenix. She is a Licensed Chemical Dependency
Counselor in the State of Texas.
Along with scheduled counseling sessions, you will have access to your counselor when in need of support via phone, text, email, Skype, and other online options depending on the client's technical capability.
We are licensed chemical dependency counselors that are here for you in a strictly confidential setting.
Our services are an affordable alternative to the high cost of standard treatment centers.
We provide our clients with a personal plan of recovery from addiction, to which they are accountable on a daily basis.
We assist our clients in creating and maintaining a new way of life, one day at a time, until they are able to maintain long term recovery through their own resources.
Most importantly we are here when you need us, and you are never alone through this difficult time.
Please fill out our contact form to speak with Jennifer today.
The online environment may not be suitable if you are currently in a crisis situation. If you are seeking help for a medical emergency or crisis involving personal safety, (e.g. suicidal feelings, domestic violence, or homicide), please call 911 immediately.
Is therapy confidential?
In general, the law protects the confidentiality of all communications between a client and a psychotherapist. No information is disclosed without prior written permission from the client. However, there are some exceptions required by law to this rule. Exceptions include:
Online counseling is done via Skype. Skype uses 256-bit encryption, which has a total of 1.1 x 1077 possible keys, in order to actively encrypt the data in each Skype call or instant message. Skype uses 1024 bit RSA to negotiate symmetric AES keys. User public keys are certified by the Skype server at login using 1536 or 2048-bit RSA certificates. All sessions are in compliance with Code of Federal Regulations, Title 42, Part 2 (relating to Confidentiality of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Patient Records), Texas Health and Safety Code, Chapter 611 (relating to Mental Health Records), and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), as applicable. Grievances may be filed with the Texas Department of State Health Services by following this link: http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/lcdc/lcdc_complaint.shtm.

Suspected child abuse, dependent adult abuse, or elder abuse. The therapist is required to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person, the therapist is required to notify the police.
If a client is intending to harm himself or herself, the therapist will make every effort to work with the individual to ensure their safety. However, if an individual does not cooperate, additional measures may need to be taken, as required by law, to ensure their safety.
