The Refuge Trauma and Counseling Center  Located on 75 and 3083 in Conroe.

 

They have day-programs and a group that meets every Tuesday night specifically for COMBAT VETERANS. The group is $5, but if you don’t have it, they will still let you in. This place is awesome because they are therapy based vs. medication. Highly recommend them.
