About the Program

Teen Intervention Program (TIP) services are designed to provide education and early intervention to the teens and their families by giving an overview of the substance-use continuum, factors that may influence healthy coping and choice making, adolescent psycho-social development, parenting with appropriate limits and consequences, and developing healthy coping skills.

The Teen Intervention Program is focused around two-hour group sessions that are held once per week for four weeks. Random urine screens are included. Family involvement occurs during the first and last session. We also may be actively involved with the school or court system if indicated.

Program Components

There are specific educational modules that are assigned for the adolescent, as well as some homework assignments. Teens and family members are asked to commit to a "no-use" agreement during the 4-week period.

At the completion of the program, the teen and family members will have a clear picture of the nature of the problem and an appropriate action plan.

Treatment Length

This is a four-week treatment program.

Treatment Schedule
