We treat teens (13-18) and young adults (18-30) for substance use, mental health, and co-occurring disorders. We treat all types of substance abuse, including marijuana, alcohol, opioids, stimulants, and the underlying mental health conditions that are often connected with addiction.
Substance abuse can occur for a variety of reasons but is not always a result of trauma or an unstable home enviroment. Teens and young adults of all different backgrounds can find themselves gripped by addiction. Some of the common substances we treat are:
Studies have found that binge drinking & heavy alcohol use are problematic for young adults.

Young adults are more susceptible to opioid abuse than any other group.
Alcohol can be used to self-medicate an underlying mental health issue or traumatic event.
Frequent marijuana use can negatively impact their emotional regulation, thinking abilities, and physical health.
Stimulants might be used to accomplish more, but these substances can be harmful and addictive when misused.
