Substance Abuse Treatment for Teens

Often teens who are enrolled in our therapeutic treatment program have a history of low to moderate substance use.  We can help teens to understand the risks associated with substance abuse and help them to value their future so that that is not an option when they return home. Our boarding school has been very successful in helping teens turn from substances abuse to other more positive outlets that build instead of destroy.
