Happy group of adolescents

We accept Medi-Cal and offer affordable private-pay rates for our adolescent services. Adolescent services and Medi-Cal enrollment are available to teens age 13 to 17 without parental consent. Adolescent drug treatment services refer to specialized programs and interventions designed to address substance abuse and addiction in young people. These services are specifically tailored to meet the unique needs and developmental challenges faced by adolescents, aiming to support their recovery, promote healthy choices, and facilitate positive life outcomes.

We now offer adolescent and family services via Telehealth. We have expanded our services to include mental health therapy, medication, family therapy, and medication-assisted treatment. We now accept Medicare which covers seniors who may be caring for adolescents with a substance abuse problem.

Center Point DAAC's adolescent services involve individual and group counseling based on an adolescent's unique needs and strengths which are identified during their initial assessment. Services are flexible and designed to meet the needs of teen school schedules and working families. Teens referred by juvenile probation or CPS are welcome. Drug testing is available both onsite and at home. 

Here are some key characteristics and components of adolescent substance abuse services:

  1. Low or No-Cost for Medi-Cal recipients. Affordable private pay and sliding-scale rates are available.

  2. Comprehensive Assessment: Adolescent drug treatment services begin with a comprehensive assessment to evaluate the individual's substance use, mental health, family dynamics, social influences, and other factors that contribute to their drug abuse. This assessment helps identify the specific needs, risk factors, and underlying issues that require attention during treatment.

  3. Individual and Group Counseling: Counseling is a central component of adolescent drug treatment. Individual therapy sessions provide a safe and confidential space for adolescents to explore their substance abuse, address underlying emotional issues, and develop healthy coping strategies. Group therapy allows young people to connect with peers facing similar challenges, share experiences, provide support, and learn from one another.

  4. Family Involvement: Recognizing the significant impact of family dynamics on adolescent drug abuse, treatment services often involve family therapy sessions. These sessions address family communication, relationships, and patterns that contribute to substance use. Engaging parents and caregivers in the treatment process helps strengthen family support systems and promotes healthier family functioning.

  5. Education and Skill-building: Adolescent drug treatment services focus on psychoeducation to enhance understanding of addiction, its consequences, and the importance of recovery. Educational sessions may cover topics such as the effects of drugs on the developing brain, healthy coping mechanisms, decision-making skills, communication skills, and goal setting.

  6. Behavioral Therapies: Evidence-based behavioral therapies are commonly employed in adolescent drug treatment. Approaches such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Contingency Management (CM) are used to address maladaptive thoughts and behaviors, reinforce positive choices, build motivation for change, and encourage healthy alternatives to substance use.

  7. Telehealth/Video Services: All adolescent and family services are available via telehealth video appointments. We understand the difficulty some teens and families may experience with transportation. These services are available for those who cannot physically attend services in-person due to transportation issues or who live too far to make it to our location in a reasonable amount of time. 

  8. Medication-Assisted Treatment: Mental health medications and medication-assisted treatment are available through our medical staff. Medications are covered by Drug Medi-Cal (Partnership).

  9. Peer Support: Adolescents often benefit from peer support and engagement. Treatment services may incorporate peer support groups or activities that allow young people to interact with others in similar situations. Peer support provides validation, encouragement, and a sense of belonging, fostering a positive recovery environment.

  10. Services Available in Spanish/Servicios disponibles en español: All services are available in Spanish. Todos los servicios están disponibles en español.

  11. Evidence-Based Treatment: Our services utilize evidence-based curriculum including The Matrix Model and follow practices outlined in the California Department of Health Care Services, Adolescent Substance Use Disorder Best Practices Guide.

  12. Continuing Care and Aftercare: Adolescent drug treatment services focus on long-term recovery by providing aftercare planning and ongoing support. This may involve referrals to community resources, support groups, and outpatient services. Continued monitoring, relapse prevention strategies, and check-ins help sustain recovery and provide ongoing support.

 

Adolescent drug treatment services acknowledge the developmental challenges and unique needs of young people in their recovery journey. By addressing substance abuse in a developmentally appropriate and supportive manner, these services aim to help adolescents build resilience, acquire life skills, and develop a healthy sense of identity and purpose. The focus on counseling, family involvement, education, and peer support create a comprehensive approach to supporting young people in overcoming substance abuse and achieving positive outcomes.
