Adolescent Outpatient Services

Outpatient programming for adolescents focuses on emotional, behavioral and social needs of each individual using an integrated approach to recovery. Our mind-body recovery approach addresses personal, familial and community-based issues faced by the individual.

The goal of our program is to support youth in identifying strategies they and their families can use to cope with the challenges they face. Learning life and social skills, emotional processing and activity and expressive therapies all take place in a group setting to allow youth to learn from others, gain support and accomplish their recovery goals. We address their health and wellness needs within a positive and affirming environment. Programming is offered in varying intensities. We work with adolescents ages 12 and up.

Program goals include:

  • Reduce inpatient returns
  • Maintain consistent attendance across sessions
  • Maintain high patient satisfaction
  • Maintain quality community relations by maintaining relationships with referral sources and cultivating new referral sources
  • Increase positive clinical outcomes (CABA scores and other outcomes)

Program outcomes may include:

  • Decrease self-harming behaviors
  • Decrease suicidal thoughts and feelings
  • Develop new ways of coping without substances
  • Manage stress and distress with effective skills and techniques
  • Improve healthy relationship skills with peers
  • Expand healthy social and communication skills
  • Increase knowledge about physical and emotional health and wellness
