Family sessions utilize a group therapy approach to treatment, and include a strong education component regarding the effects of chemical use on families, schooling, employment, and relationships.  This includes education regarding relapse and relapse prevention, develop and practice communication skills, establish relationship management skills, and more. 

Youth Chemical Health Education Program:

This program is designed for youth who do not currently have, but who may be at risk of, a substance use disorder diagnosis.  Programming provides education regarding chemical health issues, and is a 3-hour session provided bi-monthly on Thursdays.  Youth are accepted through probation programs, community agency referrals, or self-referrals.  Families can also be included.  This program is not Rule 25 funded.
