Adolescent Outpatient

When You Don’t Know

Where To Turn

Adolescence is a time of transition between childhood and adulthood. Also, during this time adolescents cultivate their sense of self. They may face difficult choices about substance use, academics, friendships, sexuality, and gender identity. Our outpatient services are designed to address these everyday adolescent struggles.

The goal of adolescent outpatient treatment is better decision making, improved relationships, and overall healthier lives.

The adolescent does NOT have to be using substances to receive outpatient services. We work with a variety of adolescent concerns including anger, anxiety, substance use, emotional outbursts, troublesome behaviors at school and/or home, etc.

Youth ages 10- 17 (18 if still in high school or working towards a GED) are eligible for outpatient services. Referrals are accepted from DJJ, DSS, mental health, schools, physicians, families and self-referrals.

The Bridge Program

The Bridge Program

Nationally recognized as a model program in working with adolescents involved with the criminal justice system. 

The Bridge is an intensive program that works with the adolescent and their family in the areas of substance abuse, education, employment, and family cohesion.

Adolescents in the Bridge program receive individual, group, and family counseling.

The primary goal of The Bridge is to reduce and eliminate the behaviors that have resulted in the adolescent’s involvement with the Department of Juvenile Justice and thereby decrease the chances of that adolescent continuing illegal behaviors and involvement in the legal system.

Eligibility: Designed for adolescents aged 13-17 who are exiting a juvenile justice or other residential facility. Other adolescents not exiting one of these types of facilities are also eligible pending space in the program. 

Parenting Group

Today’s teens are facing issues that no previous generation has ever seen due to social media, school violence and the aftermath of the COVID pandemic.

The six-week parenting group helps parents to enhance their parenting skills with concrete, step-by-step solutions without getting overwhelmed by the everyday struggles with strong willed, technology driven youth.

Throughout this program, we offer a way for parents to gain support from other parents dealing with similar struggles while learning new ways to respond to the current issues facing teens. Parenting group is offered to the parents or guardians of all outpatient clients.
