The expanded services will be led by Laura Fox, LMSW, behavioral health supervisor at AL!VE. Fox is accepting new patients (from young children to seniors) by physician referral, or patients may also self-refer or refer a loved one.

“I am eager to meet the increasing needs of the communities we serve.  Wherever people choose to live and raise their families, they deserve access to specialized care and treatment," Fox said.
