Where To Find ALS Resources Near You
While you can always reach us at our ALS Association of Texas offices, we also have support groups, centers, and clinics throughout the state. At a center or clinic, you can get access to care from physicians and medical professionals, while support groups are community gatherings that provide much-needed emotional support.

ALS Certified Treatment Centers & Clinics
The ALS Association Certified Treatment Center program designed, implemented, and monitors a national standard of best-practice care for ALS patients. Since the program’s inception, the ALS Association has certified Treatment Centers of Excellence throughout the country. These certifications are based on established requirements for programs, professionals’ skill sets, patients served, active involvement in ALS-related research, relationships with local Chapters and access to care. At these Centers, patients can receive comprehensive medical care, attend support groups and counseling, and help with the Medicare/Medicaid application process.
Our ALS Clinics have reached out to some of the best ALS physicians and clinics in various communities to work closely with the clinic staff in meeting the needs of people with ALS and their families. These clinics provide excellent clinical care and many are modeled after the multidisciplinary criteria of the ALS Association Certified Treatment Center program.
Finding people to talk to who understand what you’re going through can be difficult when you’re coping with ALS. At our support groups, patients, caregivers, and friends and family gather to discuss their issues and provide advice and support. Most of our groups meet either monthly or bimonthly, and we also have caregiver and bereavement support groups.
