For over 47 years we have served adolescents and families dealing with substance abuse and mental health challenges through treatment and prevention programs. As a family focused provider, our counseling services extend to family members affected by and involved in the youth’s counseling and/or recovery needs. The program engages youth and their families in a process of measuring the extent of the young person’s substance abuse and/or mental health challenges, educating the family about substance abuse and mental health, providing the individual client and family with activities to allow for the development of new behaviors, and opportunities to address other disorders which may be co-occurring with substance abuse. At Bacon Street Youth and Family Services, we truly understand how scary and overwhelming adolescent substance abuse issues are and we are here to help, free of judgment and full of compassion.
