……….Building towards family empowerment and a greater community.

Bethel Family Counseling & Outreach Services (BFCOC) began as the sprouting seed of a vision held by the Reverend R.B. Holmes, Jr. and members of Bethel Missionary Baptist Church. It is a not-for-profit charitable organization. The program began operating in 2001 and was then housed at the Bethel Family Life Center located at 406 N. Bronough Street. On May 27, 2004, Reverend Holmes, staff, and guests celebrated the grand opening of Bethel Family Counseling & Outreach Center. The new location is 471 West Tennessee Street, next door to the Bethel Family Restaurant.
At Bethel Family Counseling and Outreach Center, everyone matters. BFCOC’s philosophy is holistic and designed to empower each individual, family, and community it serves. Services focus on the whole person with emphasis on improved mental, emotional, physical, and social well-being. BFCOC’s mission is to ensure the availability and accessibility of high quality compassionate, ethical, and supportive human service programs for consumers in Leon and surrounding counties. BFCOC’s staff of psychiatrist, licensed clinicians, and master’s level therapists all share a commitment to evidence-based practice that recognizes and builds upon the consumers strengths and is highly responsive to their concerns.
The clinical team at Bethel Family Counseling and Outreach Center provides comprehensive biopsycho-social assessments, individual, group and family counseling, psychiatric evaluations, and medication management. Generally, the individual counseling protocol engages consumers in twelve (12) consecutive, goal directed sessions designed to reduce symptoms and improve functioning. BFCOC clinicians design interventions to help consumers cope with such challenges as major depression, panic disorders, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorders, bi-polar disorder, assessment and treatment for addictions, and a long list of other behavioral disorders. BFCOC provides comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment for both adults and children exhibiting symptoms of ADD/ADHD.
At Bethel Family Counseling and Outreach Center, treatment is a private matter and will be handled confidentially. Information about services received can be released only through written consent in accordance with state and federal guidelines.
Bethel Family Counseling and Outreach Center is eligible for reimbursement under most Medicaid plans. The center offers a sliding scale for those who wish to self-pay. Additionally, center staff is credentialed, with carrier approval, to provide services under area health insurance plans.
