The Adolescent Substance Abuse Program (ASAP), is an intensive outpatient treatment program for adolescents.  ASAP is different from most treatment programs because we approach the treatment of substance abuse from a family systems perspective, utilizing family therapy models as our overall treatment philosophy.  Because of this, we work with the whole family as the “client” and work to support change in the system as a whole, rather than just the adolescent.  We believe this leads to more lasting change for the whole family.  Additionally, we believe that the family is the biggest resource in most cases and parents/caregivers are most connected and invested in the outcome of their adolescent’s treatment.  We want to partner with the families to support the struggling adolescent.

The Adolescent Substance Abuse Program (ASAP) accepts one intern per year starting in the fall and going through the spring, (September- May).
