Alcohol and drug screening, assessment, referral and limited treatment for families participating the SUN Service System and families with children ages 12-17.
Our services are 75% screening, assessment, linkage, referral and prevention. 25% of services are level one treatment.
Our goal is to:
- Identify youth with substance abuse issues
- Link youth to treatment services
- Provide outpatient treatment for identified youth
- Educate youth about the risks of alcohol, tobacco and drug use
Screening is a review of drug and alcohol use to determine behaviors and patterns that might need more assessment
Assessment a more in depth interview with the youth and his/her family about drug and alcohol use. This results in a rapid referral and connection to treatment by this or another treatment provider. The program leverages 3rd party insurance for youth who have insurance.
Direct treatment is when a youth does not have any other resources
Prevention and Outreach is skill building groups-teaching refusal skills, for example: groups for at rick youth for substance abuse (children from drug -affected families etc.)
