Adolescent Outpatient Services

Adolescent Outpatient Services provide specialized outpatient services to children and adolescents for the treatment of mental health, substance use, and co-occurring disorders. Clinicians are specialized in the treatment of childhood trauma and hold specialty training and certification in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Intergenerational Trauma and Neuro-Developmental Trauma, as well as possessing Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor designation.

The outpatient approach on recovery is less intensive than residential services, but offers a more flexible approach for those who need freedom to attend school. Clients meet for individual and/or group sessions that focus on living life in recovery. For those leaving residential treatment, outpatient services can provide a smooth transition from treatment to home life.

Adolescent Outpatient Services are offered at a number of Outpatient Offices across the Upper Peninsula. The availability of clinicians and services are different at each location, please call (906) 228-9696 for services that work for you.
