The Day Program is for adolescents who are chemically dependent.

It is an option or alternative to residential treatment, in the hopes that the entire family will become engaged in the treatment process. The recovery aspects of the program are based on 12-Step support, outside meetings, sponsors, relapse prevention, goal setting, relationship building, communication skills, stress management, conflict resolution, time management, creative development, life management, independent skills and self image empowerment. The approach is to assist parents and teens in getting back "on track" and to build healthier family dynamics.
