Young people have the capacity to make sound decisions regarding their lives and their use of chemicals once they gain an understanding of their motivations and attitudes. The Council’s treatment goal is to help foster this understanding through intensive and basic counseling. These specialized services include:
Early Intervention Group
Which is designed for adolescents who may be experimenting with mood-altering substances. Counselors provide education and guidance to assist the person in making the decision to live substance free.
Alternative to Suspension Program
Provides substance abuse education to youths violating school, home or community policy of their use of alcohol and/or other drugs.
Children of Addicts/Sibling Education Group
Assists children between the ages of five and 11 who are struggling to cope with the chemical dependence of their parents or other loved ones.
Because the family is the most important unit to which an individual can belong, The Council strives to offer services and to involve as many members of the family as possible.
Intensive Adolescent Outpatient Program and Basic Counseling Program provide educational and counseling services for adolescents and their family members. The goal of these programs is to look at how lives have been negatively affected by substance use, and to offer guidance to adolescents in making appropriate choices regarding their recovery.
