Shoreline provides a wide variety of options for adolescents and children, ranging from education services to treatment for more serious substance issues. Adolescent groups usually range in age from 12 to 18-years-old. Special arrangements can be made for those younger than 12 and each case is approached on an individual basis. Adolescents are educated about the effects and risks of their substance use and are taught alternative activities or coping skills. They also learn ways to deal with peer pressure and healthier ways to communicate. We offer family services and encourage family involvement through regular progress updates and family support / therapy. Evidence has shown that family involvement in a child’s treatment increases the likelihood of a more successful outcome.
