About Quest

We can help.

Quest Counseling is 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit corporation established in Reno, Nevada in 2003. Our prevention and treatment services are certified by the State of Nevada Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Agency (SAPTA).

In 2012, Quest Counseling opened Quest House, a transitional living program for adolescents which is licensed by the Washoe County Department of Social Services as a specialized foster home. Programming includes 24-hour a day, 7 days a week structure, care and safety with off-site treatment for clients experiencing substance use disorders along with co-occurring mental health disorders.

We accept Medicaid fee-for-service and Amerigroup, many insurances, self-payments, plus Quest Counseling contracts with several governmental entities.  Sliding-fee-scale rates are available to those who qualify.
