Evoke Therapy Programs are clinically focused with Masters and Doctorate level therapists working together with Field Guides as a treatment team to create treatment plans and goals. Field Guides are empowered to be highly involved with creating a client’s personal treatment plan and assignments. Treatment plans are individualized for each participant.
Guides work in a team of four to five with a group of eight to 10 clients.

Evoke Field Guides focus on teaching clients how to communicate assertively and be accountable for their choices.
