At Trivium Life Services, our mission is simple: Creating Hope. Empowering Lives. Inspiring Communities.

This year, we expanded our mission by partnering with two organizations, Averte and Arbor Family Counseling, bringing our presence to five states and touching more lives than ever before.

Close to home, Arbor Family Counseling has been providing the Omaha area with counseling services since 1993, specializing in Employee Assistance Programs and Student Assistance Programs.

Averte, a long-term services provider with locations in Vermont and New Hampshire, is a second-generation family business that first welcomed clients in 1979.

Trivium was thrilled to welcome the new employees and clients into our fold and are so proud of all we have accomplished together this year.

Supported Community Living

Our Supported Community Living offers a group home setting for those who want to live independently in a home with roommates but need staff assistance and care up to 24 hours a day. For those who live in their own homes and just need a bit of assistance, we also offer Hourly Support Care to help with medication monitoring, transportation, and integration.

Day Habilitation

Trivium’s Day Habilitation program engages clients in structured activities centered on personal choice, individualized care, and goal setting. The program offers social interaction and community engagement. Typical activities range from day trips and volunteering with local organizations to working on personal goals like self-advocacy, health monitoring, and adaptive skills.

Employment Services

Employment Services assist job-seeking clients in gaining and retaining employment in the community. Clients work with Trivium staff to discover their interests, develop career goals, create/update resumes, and identify opportunities. Once a client is hired, we work with them and their employer to ensure they stay happily employed.

Specializing in substance use disorder treatment in Idaho, our plans encompass skill building, understanding, support, and exploration of the underlying issues surrounding substance use disorder. We offer a variety of clinical services, including individual, family, and group counseling, along with recovery support services ranging from coaching and case management to recovery skills groups.

Domestic Violence Offender Intervention Services

Violence and aggression are learned behaviors and, like other behaviors, Trivium believes they can be unlearned. Our services help men and women learn to handle stressful situations without the use of physical or emotional abuse.

Our programs are designed to help you take ownership, accountability, and responsibility for your life and its outcomes while meeting the requirements of your court judgements, probationary expectations, or parole board agreements.

The following curriculums are offered:

  • Domestic Violence Counseling for Men
  • Domestic Violence Counseling for Women
  • Moral Recognition Therapy - Domestic Violence (MRT-DV)
  • Another Way Choosing to Change (AWCC)

Domestic Violence Treatments Services: 400 clients served


Before I started in the program at Trivium, I knew something needed to change but I just didn’t know what that was.

I was doing talk therapy, but it wasn’t really helping because I was afraid to be honest about what was going on and about the violence.

When I got arrested for domestic violence, it was a wake up call. At the time I thought it was the worst thing that could’ve ever happened, and I realize now it’s probably the best thing that could’ve happened.

What kind of skills did you work on in the Trivium program?

We mostly focused on how to listen to your body telling you what’s going on, understanding what anxiety and anger feel like and how anger is a secondary emotion.

Did you learn anything about yourself?

I learned a lot that I hadn’t processed from childhood trauma. And I learned that I really needed this class not just for the domestic violence stuff but for the emotional processing. Now I’ve been able to teach some of these skills to my children, like knowing when you feel anxious or upset about something and how to deal with that feeling.


Building for the future

When we took on the name Trivium Life Services, it was to aid us in our goal of expanding to serve more individuals. It is a unifying name that suits our vision and mission of Creating Hope, Empowering Lives, Inspiring Communities. In our time as Trivium, we have done just that — and we have more on the horizon.

With the new name, we also have a new headquarters, moving to the beautiful River’s Edge Parkway in Council Bluffs. The larger space allows us the capacity needed to expand and propel our mission. As we are experiencing rapid growth, we now have the capabilities to keep reaching and developing — including with the new Center of Excellence.

Trivium’s Center of Excellence, located at the River’s Edge, is a development center aiming to create more inclusive leaders through professional development, consultations, and CliftonStrengths Coaching. It is the next step in Trivium’s commitment to inclusivity, innovation, and exploration as we develop strategies that support our desire to expand our reach and increase our impact in the communities we serve.

In Idaho, a partnership with local hospitals allowed us to help more overdose survivors through a “Warm Handoff” into substance use disorder services. It will continue into the upcoming year and touch even more lives. Our behavioral health program will have a large impact in Iowa as well, as we have expanded into serving individuals in Sioux City and Council Bluffs. This is the culmination of years of work, but is just the start of our vision. We laid the groundwork for strong capacity-building this year, and we hope you’ll all stick with us as it blossoms over the coming years.
