The Young Adult Group (YAG) Program

Young adults in recovery or seeking recovery from alcohol, drug, and mental health issues require specialized care from staff well-trained in dual-diagnosis along with receiving social support from peers. This is an evening program for young adults (age 18–25) who have substance abuse, mood disorders and/or co-occurring problems. The YAG Program provides support for young adults and college students with mental health issues that have interfered with independent living, college life or who may be struggling to remain sober while in college. This program also provides support for young people who are in transition after experiencing academic or behavioral problems in college.

The YAG Program offers:

  • Extensive evaluation services with onsite, accurate drug screening
  • Group therapy two times per week 5:00pm-7:00pm
  • Individual and family counseling as needed
  • Referral to community-based A.A. and N.A. meetings and an onsite Young people’s A.A. meeting on Mondays at 7:00pm

Young adults may also attend YAG Program for the group sessions and substance abuse counseling while maintaining their individual relationship with referring therapists and psychiatrists.
