CHOICES is designed to specifically address adolescent substance abuse issues. All of the therapists have focused-expertise and experience working effectively with adolescents.
CHOICES utilizes a treatment team approach. A small treatment team provides all of the individual, family and group counseling services. At team meetings ,participants’ progress is reviewed, allowing for an individually tailored treatment approach.
CHOICES uses a multidimensional treatment model. Based upon evidence-based approaches for adolescent substance abuse treatment, CHOICES integrates a variety of treatment strategies to maximize success. In addition to weekly individual and family sessions, participants needing a higher level of care also participate in dynamic, engaging group sessions up to six days a week. There is also a weekly parent support group.
