Adolescents Open For Change - Drug and Alcohol Residential Treatment
For more information, please call the Program Coordinator, Terri Price, at (480) 448-7536.
We provide a healing, therapeutic environment that helps teens increase their level of self-esteem, responsibility, education and commitment to initiate and maintain sobriety.
- Twelve Step Meetings
Alcholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Alateen and other 12-step groups are included in treatment to begin and maintain the recovery process. Members of the recovery community lead groups on the unit. It is imperative that these young people meet other young people who are having fun in sobriety! This part of the program provides a transition into aftercare.
- Ropes Course
Residents participate in a challenge course and other activities that teach team work, build trust, promote coping skills and tests their ability to problem solve.
- C.D. Focus Groups
These groups assist residents in identifying patterns of emotions, personal responsibility, family issues, spirituality and life events that affect each individual.
Emphasis is placed on chemical dependency education and developing a greater understanding of the relationship between these factors and their efforts to maintain sobriety. Groups work on improving communication, active listening, self-disclosure, assertiveness training, anger management and other issues.
We strongly encourage immediate family members to participate in the treatment process by attending this group. Discussions focus on changes the teen and family members need to make to support successful sobriety. Family members include parents, legal guardians and siblings over 12 who are not actively using alcohol or other drugs.
