Family Counseling Services is a private, non-profit organization offering professional counseling and prevention services. Mental health and chemical dependency counseling programs are available for youth, adults and families who are experiencing emotional, personal, and alcohol or drug-related problems. Services are available at multiple locations in Cortland and Madison counties and through our school-based counseling programs.

Family Counseling employs a staff of professional counselors and consulting medical personnel with diverse training and experience. It is our goal to provide superior, confidential services for the well-being of each of our clients.

Our Cortland Prevention Resources division offers prevention education and services, mentoring and other programs for youth, adults, families, professionals and educators. The LGBT Resource Center is located at the Prevention offices and offers information, resources and social activities.
