To this end we will provide experiential groups to address living skills, job security, budgeting, and responsibility. We also refer to community based agencies and programs to assist us in fulfilling our mission. Clients will be expected to continue involvement in AA/NA to enhance their recovery experience. Clem-Mar focuses on intense counseling in an intimate setting. We believe improved self esteem, positive mental attitude training and vocational skills lead to a firm foundation of recovery from the disease of addiction. Clem-Mar will conduct an interview with each potential candidate for our program. This interview will take place in person prior to the client being accepted for admission to the facility.
After a client has been determined appropriate for the level of care, eligible for admission and has completed the initial assessment procedures, orientation to the program takes place. The nature and goals of the program, rules of conduct, hours of service, and clients' rights are explained. During treatment, periodic assessments are conducted.
The goal of assessment is for the client and the assigned counselor to discuss the client's chemical usage history to begin to prepare an individualized treatment approach specific to the client's needs. In the assessment procedure, Clem-Mar determines how well clients are gaining re-integration to society through better coping mechanisms, educational/vocational skills and life skills.
Clem-Mar House, Inc. does not deprive a client of a civil right solely by reason of treatment. The project does not discriminate in the provision of services on the basis of age, race, creed, sex, ethnicity, color, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, handicap or religion.

Wyoming Valley Alcohol and Drug Services, Inc. is a private, non-profit agency that was founded in June 1973, and its first governing body was the Alcoholism Council of Luzerne County. The original name of the agency was the Wilkes-Barre Center on Alcohol Abuse and it was located at the Wilkes-Barre General Nursing Home from June 1973 to March 1974, which is now the site of the hospital parkade.
In March 1974, our agency moved to the west side of the river to the Nesbitt Memorial Hospital Medical Arts Building. The geographic move necessitated a change in the agency name and we now became the Wyoming Valley Center on Alcohol Abuse. In June 1974, we became incorporated under our present name of Wyoming Valley Alcohol and Drug Services, Inc.
In July 1977, we moved to 601 Wyoming Avenue, Kingston and remained there until May of 1980, at which time, we relocated to 383 Wyoming Avenue, Kingston, and remained there until December 1994.
December 1994 marks a milestone in our agency’s storied and spirited growth, for this is the date we moved to our current home at 437 North Main Street, Wilkes-Barre.
Although our agency has experienced many name and geographic changes, what hasn’t changed is our mission, conviction, and commitment to responding to the needs of the public we serve.
