Adolescent Outpatient

The purpose of the Adolescent Outpatient Program is to promote the well being of at-risk youth by educating them about the risks and consequences of alcohol and other drug use and abuse. The Program helps young people change their lives for the better. The key is whether they have the motivation and support to be successful. Family involvement historically provides positive long term treatment outcomes. Granite Wellness Centers offers family support groups as part of the Adolescent Outpatient Program.
