Drug or Alcohol Treatment Services for Teens and Young Adults

Picture of young people

The Department of Behavioral Health offers treatment and support for teens and young people up to age 21 seeking help for drug or alcohol challenges.   You can choose from the certified community based providers listed below and call for an appointment.  You also can talk to a parent/caregiver, teacher, social worker or friend who can help connect you to one of the providers.  A counselor will talk with you about your needs and help choose a program that fits you.  If indicated,  a counselor also will make a referral to  mental health treatment as addiction and mental health challenges often go hand in hand.
