Programs are arranged in alphabetical order, and each entry includes the address, a contact person, a brief description of the program, the budget and number of clients served, the target population, and the communities served. The final section lists organizations that can refer clients to counselors. The directory's focus is on community-based programs that reach broad groups of people, particularly juveniles. Drug-rehabilitation programs, psychiatric hospitals, and private therapists treating people with violence problems are not included. A geographic listing of resources and an index are appended.
