Our Mission
Our vision is a community where individuals and families can live healthy, safe and productive lives.

DISC Village is committed to developing a broad continuum of services in response to the multiple and diverse needs of the community while helping assure public safety.

Confidentiality
Confidentiality is very important to DISC Village. It is imperative that every consumer’s confidentiality is observed for therapeutic progress to occur. Strict adherence to all federal and state statutes is maintained throughout DISC Village staff.

 

Fee For Service
DISC Village understands economic or other hardships when needing services and will not turn a consumer away based on ability to pay.
