Early Intervention

This program addresses drug and alcohol issues. Our primary customer are youth who have indulged in illegal alcohol or other drug use and can benefit from education and self examination. This is not aftercare or a substitute for chemical dependency treatments.

This is a four-week program in which facilitators meet with both the parents and adolescents. The groups run separately but during the same time frame. There are some actitivities in which child and parent meet together.

Age Group: 12-18 plus parent or guardian

Studies have shown that it is helpful to share concerns and feelings with others in a group meeting. Through this interaction with others who have similar feelings and experiences, people learn to accept and deal with life circumstances in a more effective manner.

New sessions begin the 1st Wednesday of each month from 6:00-8:15pm. Session fee is $99 for each parent/adolescent group.
