COVID-19 UPDATE: All counseling sessions and support groups are currently being provided through telehealth services. This provides an effective option in light of current social restrictions. We realize that many families may be in the middle of facing a substance use crisis and that a substance use disorder doesn't take a break for the virus. If you feel uncertain about how to proceed at this time, please don't hesitate to call to discuss options.

ASSESSMENT AND EVALUATION

The PREVENT! Program

A comprehensive substance use evaluation program for teens and young adults.

"Telling a client his or her chemical use is a problem—without explaining why—is a set-up for resistance."

Using the Motivational Intervention model, PREVENT! provides a remarkably effective approach for helping young people examine substance use issues and become willing to change.

• 5 sessions

• Drug awareness education

• Written work examining impact of substance use

• Individual and family counseling

JOURNEY TO RECOVERY

An individualized outpatient substance use program for teens and young adults—designed for positive results.

Successful treatment begins with building a solid foundation for recovery. Journey To Recovery is a one-of a-kind program that combines top evidence-based models with a uniquely creative approach that young people love.

After running his own adolescent IOP program for over ten years, Jim Savage got a good education of knowing "what works" and what "doesn't work" when working with young people in substance use disorder treatment. He now offers this unique option for individuals needing to address a substance use issue either a) before more intensive options are indicated, or b) as an aftercare program following residential treatment.  

The Journey To Recovery program provides a sophisticated blend of:

a. didactic material for understanding what goes into successful recovery

b. creative activities using music, storytelling and meditation to reinforce recovery

c. extensive family involvement for effective support
