Our Story

DISC Village, Inc. is a private, non-profit corporation that provides a full continuum of services from prevention and intervention to residential treatment and aftercare services for individuals adversely affected by alcohol and other drug abuse, and those who may be involved in the criminal and/or juvenile justice systems.

DISC Village partners with local service providers across the Big Bend Region and collaborates with multiple state and federal departments to provide a broad array of services for the multiple and diverse needs of the community. DISC Village is licensed by the State of Florida, Department of Children and Families, and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

DISC Village consistently serves individuals and families throughout North Florida with a multidisciplinary staff of trained professionals and paraprofessionals dedicated to the growth and wellbeing of our community.

Our Mission

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

The primary mission of DISC Village is to promote the well-being of individuals, families, and those with whom they are closely associated who are adversely affected by alcohol and other drug abuse, crime, behavioral problems, and mental health disorders.

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. This will be accomplished by focusing upon continued accreditation, staff competence, measurable outcomes in services and client satisfaction.

Confidentiality

In an effort to provide a strong and supportive therapeutic environment, DISC Village staff adhere to all federal and state statutes to maintain client confidentially. We believe that all clients should be given the respect of professional privacy to ensure personal safety and comfort throughout the therapeutic process.

Fee for Service

DISC Village understands economic or other hardships when in need of services and will not turn a client away based on ability to pay. DISC Village will work with clients and/or referral sources in regards to fees for services, including urinalysis testing, specialized drug testing, and HIV testing, based on a sliding scale.

DISC Village receives federal Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant funds and serves people who inject drugs. DISC Village is therefore federally required to give preference in admitting people into treatment as follows:

1. Pregnant injecting drug users;
2. Pregnant drug users;
3. People who inject drugs;
4. All others.
