Treatment Philosophy

Many families in our area face desperate situations that involve mental health and substance use issues. Our therapy approach is to treat the entire family, not just the struggling individual. Our goal is to renew and maintain the family structure and support group with an emphasis on returning the individual to a healthy family and community life. For more information about services and the success of our programs, clinicians, and staff, our 2020 annual report can be viewed below.

Family Life Counseling Began with One Man’s Humble Need to Serve Those Who Are Hurting

Who We Are:

Family Life was organized and opened under the direction of Dr. Steven Burggraf in 1999. With very small beginnings, Dr. Burggraf established a working relationship with Richland County Children Services and Richland County Juvenile Court. His primary focus was to provide mental health evaluations and adolescent treatment services, but he quickly added services as needs were apparent.

2000 - Drug and Alcohol treatment services 
2002 - Multisystemic Therapy Best Practice Model 
2003 - Parenting with Love and Limits  program
2006 - Seven Challenges Drug & Alcohol Best Practice Model
2014 - Regionalized and began providing offices in the Millersburg area, then further expanding treatment services and offices in Mansfield, Shelby, Danville, Loudonville, Galion, Willard, Norwalk and Bellevue.  

Accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities and certified by the Ohio Department Mental Health and Addiction Services.
