The purpose of this program is to provide intensive, residential, and aftercare services to youth who are faced with imminent risk of institutionalization and/or incarceration for abuse of alcohol, drugs, and/or other substances; a complete treatment environment where all problem areas of the youth's life can be addressed; assessment of and appropriate services to the family, enabling them to support the youth in making lifestyle changes; and skills necessary to ensure the youth maintain residency in their community and prevent relapse.
