Youth Services

Youth & Family Services Department is dedicated to addressing unique challenges faced by adolescents, particularly in the realm of substance abuse. Our specialized counselors are equipped to work closely with teens aged 12 to 17, designing tailored treatment goals that cater specifically to their needs. Our comprehensive outpatient and intensive outpatient treatments are available for adolescents between 12-17 respectively, who have diagnosable substance use disorders. Additionally, we've expanded our reach to local schools through our school-based services, partnering with several school districts to provide on-campus substance use early intervention, treatment, mental health, and prevention services.
