New Patient Packet - ADULT
New Patient Packet - CHILD

Athena is the name COMTREA has given to our alcohol and other substance abuse treatment programs.  Locations across Jefferson County allow easy access to recovery for adults and adolescents. 

Athena programs have provided comprehensive and holistic treatment for alcohol and other substance abuse since 1974. This has been accomplished through attending to the physical, mental, social and spiritual aspects of each individual through optional treatments that may include individual and group work, day treatment, residential treatment (for adolescent males), aftercare and family education. Participants automatically qualify for priority medical and dental care through COMTREA’s Federally Qualified Health Centers located in Hillsboro, the Valley School center in House Springs, or our new location (open August, 2015) High Ridge close to Fenton.


The Athena Story

A famous “lost myth” told the story of the Greek hero, Jason, and his encounter with a monster.  While the actual story has been lost to history, a charger/bowl etched with this picture was unearthed.  It shows Jason whose search for the “Golden Fleece” is interrupted by a monster who is attempting to swallow him.  But Athena (the goddess of wisdom) rescued him and set him on his way to find that for which he searched.

This story seems to be an excellent metaphor for the process of recovery from alcoholism or other drug abuse.  Through COMTREA’s Athena 

Programs, one can recover from the monster of addiction/dependence and continue his/her productive life. 

Upon completion of the program graduates receives a coin in a special ceremony.  The coin has the symbol of Athena on one side andthe “Serenity Prayer” on the obverse. 

Some graduates wear the coin as a necklace; others carry it in their pocket or use it as a key chain.
