For parents

From ages birth to 22 and everywhere in between, we're here to support you

Parenting is never an easy job, and it can be even tougher when you think your child might be struggling. Depression, anxiety, substance abuse, divorce, developmental troubles, behavior issues, grief, self-harm, eating disorders, family conflicts and more can interrupt a family's well-being. We specialize in youth and family issues, and our services are tailored to your family's individual needs.

Each year, YES helps about 1,500 young people overcome substance abuse and addiction through its integrated substance abuse treatment and mental health counseling programs that not only address drug and alcohol use, but also its underlying causes.
