This group provides tools to prevent and deal with relapse as well as an opportunity to process experiences with triggers. Although it is part of the Level II program, most clients will be encouraged to attend this ongoing group, regardless of their level of care.

Adolescent Treatment Groups
Our adolescent groups function as a safe place for teenagers to be themselves, be heard, and connect with peers who are also facing the challenge of addiction and the transition toward adulthood. There are two groups offered, based on stage of change: an entry-level group and a maintenance group for those adolescents who have achieved abstinence. Both groups compassionately address drug and alcohol education, relapse prevention, identification of triggers, drug education, and healthy coping skills. These groups satisfy Minor in Possession charge treatment requirements.
