In 1999, an endeavor involving The Counseling Center Inc., of Portsmouth and the Scioto County Department of Job and Family Services was born. It is an innovative and dynamic workforce development project, which gives recovering clients an opportunity to participate in an extended treatment program while combining real work experience and training.

The Loved Ones Lectures began as a response to calls and questions Ed Hughes received as an alcohol and drug counselor and as the Executive Director of a drug and alcohol treatment agency. Parents, spouses, grandparents and friends would call him in the depths of despair, hoping that there was something they could do to make their loved one stop the insanity of abusing drugs or alcohol. With each call, he knew that there was a need to offer education, practical tips and, more importantly, hope to the loved ones caught in the grip of family addiction. This series is the result of years of work in the field of family and individual counseling. The series provides usable information that will help viewers find real solutions to the baffling disease of addiction.
Your support makes it possible to serve teens, adults and families who have mustered the courage to deal with their addiction problems. Thank you on behalf of The Counseling Center, its staff and most importantly, all those people who are determined to make a better life for themselves, their loved ones and those around them.
