Today’s youth face challenges on many fronts, whether at home, school or in the community. The first step is prevention, and giving youth the skills and resources they need to proactively manage the ups and downs of everyday life. Our prevention specialists work in the schools and community using evidence-based practices focusing on substance abuse and other destructive behaviors.

We also understand young people are confronted with situations that create emotional or mental distress. At times like this, they may require professional assistance to provide support necessary for recovery.    

Whether it is outpatient or community-based services, our skilled and compassionate health professionals are available throughout the region any time of day, any day of the week.
