Residential Substance Abuse Treatment

Youth For Tomorrow offers a Residential Substance Abuse Program for adolescents that focuses on prevention and treatment of Substance Abuse Disorders through evidence based practices delivered by staff who specialize in Substance Abuse Treatment. Each participant will receive daily group therapy, weekly individual therapy, family therapy, and support for making behavior changes as well as pursuing academic goals. We serve boys and girls ages 14-18 who meet the criteria for being placed in a clinically managed low-intensity residential program.

We treat Substance Abuse from a holistic framework treating and caring for the individuals physical, social, mental, and spiritual health. Each participant will be treated with dignity and respect as they pursue their path of discovery and recovery during their 4-6 month stay in the Substance Abuse Program. Upon completion of all the individual’s goals, each program participant will receive aftercare referrals that are individually designed to maintain the momentum of recovery and healing.
