Adolescent Substance Abuse

file

Prevention:
A main objective of ASACS is to prevent teens from becoming involved with alcohol or other drugs at a time so critical to their healthy development as vital, functioning adults. Our focus is on helping teens make healthy and safe choices and then teaching parents and community members how to support them and those choices.
 

Treatment:
The ASACS program's other main objective is to provide adolescents who have already experimented with alcohol or other drugs or who have begun to use more regularly, an opportunity to learn more about substance use and its impact on their lives. We also help adolescents who have been affected by someone else's use by providing them with a safe place to begin to sort out feelings and learn more about the effects of substance abuse in their lives.
 

How do we do that?

  • Comprehensive screening and assessment
  • Individual, group, and family counseling
