What Makes the Youth Program So Successful?

A trauma-informed, strength-based approach that treats both the symptoms and the root causes of substance use disorder. We build trust, resilience, and confidence in young people. We offer specialty services that are proven to support better outcomes and long term positive change. Teens are assigned their own Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor and Family Therapist and will be reffered to a mental health specialist if needed. They will also work a rigourous program of education and behavior modification and daily academics.

92% of teens who complete our prgram report satisfaction with their experience.
