Substance using and high-risk teens have unique developmental needs. Outreach’s outpatient services for teen drug abuse afford individuals the flexibility to live at home while working toward recovery.
How It Works
Outreach’s outpatient services treat teen drug abuse through three fundamental counseling approaches – individual, group, and family. We carefully select from support services such as vocational counseling and sober social field trips, and more, to enhance the program’s impact. Sessions address drug use, co-occurring problems, and life skills deficits.
Snapshot of What We Offer
Participation in the appropriate adolescent outpatient track depends upon the specific needs of each individual and family.
- Outreach uses The Seven Challenges Program®, an evidence-based practice specifically designed for adolescents struggling with substance use disorder. Groundbreaking in its approach, this teen-focused model helps build life skills such as problem-solving, decision making, coping, goal development and more.
- As teens progress through treatment, in individual and group counseling, we help them gain the skills and confidence needed to stay drug-free and grow into healthy, contributing adults.
- We involve families in the process, in family counseling, helping them develop collective growth and recovery goals. To ensure ongoing success after treatment, family members learn how to provide the support and structure the teens need for a life free of drugs and alcohol.
Outreach built its reputation treating teens, ages 12-17, for drug and alcohol addiction. For over three decades, we have helped thousands of young people and their families reclaim their lives from substance abuse.
