What makes ECS different?
By offering licensed and alternative wellness along with professional cannabis experience, ECS provides an integrated approach to physical and mental well-being. We put the needs of the patient first by providing services, products and education all in one location.
Medical Cannabis Services
We know there are many places where you can obtain your medical cannabis card. We strive to create lasting relationships with our patients and their families. We are a full service facility that specializes in utilizing your current resources and providing education beyond the application process. This is a benefit because our process is more cost-effective and helps prepare patients for what to expect once they arrive at their dispensary. We have trusted cannabis friendly partners should you need a physician, either in our offices or through referrals.

Medical Cannabis Application Assistance
Mobile Wellness Events, Seminars and Services
We know that wellness works best with an integrated and personalized approach. Instead of going to multiple offices, we offer a variety of services at one location. Individual sessions provide personalized care and are offered by appointment. Our Gentle Recovery model provides an integrated approach to address the healing process. Through Gentle Recovery the focus is on RECEIVING instead of DOING. We believe our patients when they say they cannot do one more thing to feel better. Mind cannot be separated from body and neither can be separated from spirit.
Together, we can help you feel whole by creating a personalized intgrated wellness program:

Melanie Dillon, MA, LCPC, NCC, CADC
CERTIFIED HOLISTIC CANNABIS PRACTITIONER
Melanie Goto Dillon has been in private practice since 1993 as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Certified Alcohol and other Drug Counselor. She is Nationally Board Certified through the National Board of Counselor Certification. She founded Center for Wellness Counseling & Education in 1993 and helped patients work through grief, loss and other mental health challenges. However, over the years the need for mind and body services working together kept coming up. In 2012 she was happy to co found Center for Wellness Inc. Together they built a thriving practice providing mind and body services in one location. Seeing first hand the relief patients experienced from having their entire system supported was extremely gratifying.
CBD/Cannabis? Having spent most of her life on the 'other side' fighting for the War on Drugs, to those who have known her Melanie was the most unlikely champion for cannabis - medical or adult use. After learning about the Endocannabinoid System, finding out Who holds the patent on cannabis and learning how cannabis and cannabinoids work to heal, Melanie was shocked to find the lies behind the majority of her training and education. Striving to be ethical and honest in all she does, particularly in patient care, it became clear that she had to do something to change the campaign of misinformation. Seeking to right wrongs, Melanie has been inspired to do something to help. It was unconscionable to think that so many patients could have found safe, natural relief for their suffering, but they and their health care providers were prohibited and misled. Through the support and encouragement from her existing network and the new network in the medical cannabis community, Melanie merged it all together in the concept of Entourage Clinical Services. She added Certified Holistic Cannabis Practitioner through the Holistic Cannabis Academy to her clinical training.
