As the founder of Rebuilding Lives Workshop, Inc. I am motivated and dedicated to serving the community by restoring individuals mentally, physically, and emotionally. We are always looking for volunteers to help us function in our office duties, such as receptionist. We are also needing the people of our community to continuously provide supplies for our offices, such as copy paper, stamps, play therapy supplies, art and sand tray, and ink. If you are interested in becoming a contributor on a yearly, monthly, or weekly basis please visit our donations page. Our services are free to the public and all people. If you are willing to change we are willing to help you. We do ask our clients to consider giving donations as they use our services and often they are our biggest supporters.
Substance Abuse and Addictions Counseling Workshop
We have added a new counselor to our program. This counselor will be assisting individuals who are ready to overcome their current addictions in alcohol, drugs, and controlled substances. If you are interested in beginning therapy we are interested in helping you get through therapy. We are interviewing for our next group that will consist of 8-15 individuals. We are asking for $15 donations per session. The individuals in the group will vote on the days the group will meet, 1 to 2 times per week, and what time the group begins and ends. If you are interested in being considered for this group please contact us.

Trauma Workshop for Women
This will be hosted by a woman and she will be interviewing for members to join this group. We like to make sure before beginning the group that the members fit the group adequately. We will be asking for $15 donations per group session per individual who attends. This will cover cost to orchestrate and maintain this group. This workshop will be non-stop and therapeutic. A professional will be hosting it. One of the workbooks that we will be working through is Healing the Trauma of Abuse: A Women's Workbook, by Copeland, M.E. & Harris, M. (2000). This workbook covers empowerment, self-esteem, boundaries, myths and distortions, self-destructive behaviors, trauma recovery, creating life changes, closing rituals, and much more.

Certified Anger Management Specialist
We refer our client's out to an anger management specialist who uses the following format:
Choice-Based Anger Control
Choice Based Anger Control is based on the simple assumption that anger is a choice—and we choose our response to any person or situation. We subscribe to the idea that Choices Made Repetitiously Become Habits. This means that you have made the same choices over and over until your behavior is automatic or habitual. The operative word is "choice." Webster’s Dictionary defines "choice" as the act of selecting; the power of choosing or that we have options. In essence, whenever you become angry, you have a menu of options available to you about how you manage and cope with your anger. You can choose to be explosive or calm. The Power of Choice is always yours. Choice is the ultimate freedom.
Choice-based Anger Control is designed to empower you to take control of your life by developing strategies and techniques to calm the anger within. Choice-based Anger Control is based on a simple philosophy: “Our lives are the sum total of our choices and actions.” As human beings, our total existence is determined by the daily choices we make—in essence we choose our way through life. We are responsible for choosing the direction, meaning, and purpose for our lives. Choice-based Anger Control’s premise is that a transformed mind leads to a transformed life. In essence, anger control is about transforming our lives by our choices and actions and developing the skills for making quality choices that lead to positive personal growth and development.
We have anger management programs for teens, adults and the workplace.
