Adolescent Supportive Recovery Services are outpatient substance use services for youth ages thirteen through eighteen that are experiencing issues with substance use and dependency. Services are offered up to three hours a week including individual, family and group therapy as well as referral to Case Management Services when diagnostically eligible. Goals of the program are to support the youth’s recovery from substances by teaching them skills to maintain sobriety, improve family and social relations, promote vocational and educational functioning and learning how to develop other recovery supports in the community.
This service teams the case manager with the youth, providing additional support to help the individual function at home, school or in the community more successfully. The case manager works with the individual in areas of skill building, illness management and relapse prevention which promote healthy lifestyles and independence with recovery and wellness as a goal.
Youth are supported in this program by a case manager who focuses on the individual needs of the client with mental illness and/or emotional disturbances, meeting regularly in the home, at school, in the community or at one of our facilities. Within this program, there are available a variety of elective specialty services to focus on skill building activities. Those enrolled in the CPR program may use these services based on their specific needs:
Our psychiatrist specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and management of mental illness beginning with a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation. They frequently work as part of a team which also includes nurses, licensed therapists, and case managers to provide comprehensive services to our patients. When necessary, medication can be an effective part of the treatment designed to meet the client’s unique mental health needs, decrease symptoms and increase the ability to function in one’s life.
The goal of this program is to help youth develop the social, emotional and intellectual skills that are necessary in order for them to live well-adjusted and happy lives. Coping skills are taught so the child can be successful handling stressful situations and assists them in developing resources that will reduce future stressors. Peer interaction is encouraged in group activities and helps the patient learn to navigate successfully through mental and behavioral health challenges. Groups take place in various settings such as the community, schools and within the agency.
