Asian Family Services

Clinical staff offers counseling and treatment services to people from diverse backgrounds!

Asian Family Services is the only clinic in CT that is licensed to serve Asian-Americans. AFS provides in-person interpretation. Clinicians and support staff are not only multicultural, but also bilingual in Vietnamese, other Asian languages, and Spanish. Established in 1996 to work with refugees and immigrants from Southeast Asia, AFS now welcomes individuals from many different cultures.

Clients may have trouble dealing with issues such as loss, domestic violence, anger management, gambling, poor health and past traumatic experiences. They may need long-term treatment for mental health or substance abuse. Through counseling, our clients learn skills to cope in a healthy manner, and develop new behavior patterns.
AFS provides:
  • Individual, family and group therapy
  • Medication management
  • Mental health and substance abuse evaluation
  • Court-mandated services
  • Coordination and referrals with medical providers and community organizations
AFS offers monthly group therapy for elderly Asian-Americans, in a social setting. Over lunch, participants learn about pain management, medications and chronic illnesses. This is an unusual and successful program.
