Help for Clinicians Working with Teens Dealing with Substance Abuse

We know this is difficult for you, and that you have questions.
Please reach out. We can help!

Teen and Family Services is a research-based program designed to meet the social, emotional, family system, educational and behavioral health needs of adolescents struggling with substance use and other high-risk behaviors. We follow the Alternative Peer Group Model (APG) which integrates recovery and life skills with pro-social and family systems programs.

Services include individual and family counseling, group support, pro-social activities, academic support, and adventure learning activities. Our groups utilize an evidence-based curriculum that focuses on life skills to support healthy decision making, feelings identification and expression and social skills.

We frequently team up with clinicians treating primary mental health issues to provide behavioral health support for clients engaged in therapy. We also work with residential and intensive outpatient programs to support comprehensive aftercare planning, significantly improving post treatment outcomes.

Through our partnerships with University of Texas, Baylor College of Medicine, The Association of Alternative Peer Groups and The Association of Recovery Schools we have established independent, peer reviewed research that endorses the effectiveness of the APG model.
