A spectrum of treatment services that is right for you

Substance use and co-occurring disorders counseling and treatment.

All YES substance use and co-occurring disorders treatment programs are motivational and strength-based, addressing substance use in the context of the whole person. The programs are designed to assist youth and their caregivers in developing skills to reduce substance use, make thoughtful choices, and address contributing factors such as stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma, in order to create a life worth living.

Co-Occurring Disorders Counseling

Our skilled, dually-certified therapists work one-to-one with youth and their families to treat substance use disorders simultaneously with co-occurring mental health issues, such as depression and/or anxiety. This integrated approach to substance use treatment promotes long-term recovery by addressing not only substance use issues but also their root causes.

Substance Use Treatment Groups

YES’ Substance Use and Co-Occurring Treatment Group program embraces the philosophy that young people have the capacity to evaluate their lives and challenges, reflect on their decisions about substance use, and work to implement positive changes with the positive support of peers, loved ones, and skilled co-occurring treatment professionals. Groups are offered in combination with individual counseling and family support, and youth are encouraged to start in the group that is relevant to their needs, as determined at their assessment.
