About Bacon Street…
At Bacon Street, we are passionate about supporting families. For over 48 years we have served adolescents and families dealing with substance abuse through treatment and prevention programs. Our mission is centered around mentorship, advocacy, support, healing, listening, and empathy. We work to build lifelong relationships with the communities we serve and focus on healing for the entire family during treatment. At Bacon Street, 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.

Our Vision
Empowering youth and their families to live free of substance use challenges.

Our Mission
Bacon Street Youth and Family Services provides prevention, education, and counseling to youth, their families, and our community, resulting in their living a life free of substance use challenges.
