Adolescent Recovery Programs
Meeting You Where You’re At
Teen Substance Use Disorder and Co-Occurring Disorders
Depression, anxiety, and behavioral issues often accompany a teenager who is feeling misunderstood, and can sometimes lead to substance use and addiction. Finding the right solutions for teens and their families is the beginning to a new life, which is why we believe in the importance of early intervention and preventative education.
Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient Programs
The Adolescent Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient programs are designed to support families that have been impacted by adolescent substance use and addiction. These programs provide all-inclusive care, and support the adolescent through a person-centered approach to treatment and recovery. Intensive Outpatient Groups are offered four times per week, and Outpatient Groups are offered two times per week. These may be combined with family and/or individual sessions, based on clinical recommendations.

Early Intervention Program
A 8-week program which provides education on the dangers of underage drinking, prescription drug and other drug use. The early intervention program is effective with youth who are beginning to experiment with alcohol and other drugs. The goal of the program is to provide education to assist in preventing the onset of more problematic substance use or dependent behaviors.
