About Adolescent Substance Abuse Programs

Most drug and alcohol addictions begin in the teen years, so Ascension is committed to offering substance abuse programs especially for adolescents.

Led by clinical specialists, our team uses a comprehensive approach for prevention, early intervention and treatment. Our drug and alcohol outpatient services connect you and your family with local and national resources, from behavioral techniques to motivational interviewing. We also provide materials and guidance to help you talk with your teen about the dangers of substance abuse.

Education and support from Ascension can help you identify and manage the early warning signs of teenage substance abuse — because the best time to address addiction is before it starts.
