Substance Use Treatment Groups

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. 


Meets Tuesday, 6-7:30 p.m. at the Bellevue office 

A six-week education and introductory treatment group designed to engage youth in a conversation about substance use decisions and to empower them to identify problems and solutions, as well as find motivation for positive change.
