Outpatient Services: Non-residential counseling services provided on a scheduled basis to youths (ages 11-18) suffering from alcohol and other drug abuse or dependence. Types of services include gender-specific groups, smoking cessation groups, co-occurring disorders groups, pre-teen groups, and parent educational sessions.
Adolescent Residential Treatment Services: Overnight alcohol and other drug abuse rehabilitation services provided to gender-specific youth (ages 13-17).
