Seeking help.
Embracing new habits.
Taking it one step at a time.

Our programs for Adolescence

Group Therapy
Group therapy is the preferred treatment for adolescents recognizing that teens respond to one another before they respond to the adults in their lives.
Group therapy helps the adolescent to effectively participate in their recovery while building self-esteem and refusal skills. The relationships developed in the group are an important agent of change.
Each teen recognizes his or her unique capabilities and potential. The Adolescent Program is a state certified, abstinence based program.

Multi-family Group
The involvement of the family is an integral part of the program. Family support for, and involvement therapy, is key to the Adolescent's success. Multi-family group weekly meetings helps enhance communication while developing clear and healthy boundaries. The teens and their loved ones receive support in a non-threatening environment.

Individual Counseling
We will have private one on one meetings with individuals.
