Touchstones offers treatment to adolescents experiencing the negative effects of alcohol and other drugs with a comprehensive system of recovery services to teens and their families. While in treatment, abstinence from alcohol and other drugs is a requirement for those choosing to begin a life of recovery.
Recovery relies on changing life habits. At Touchstones, teens gradually develop coping skills by finding a voice within the community. As they realize self esteem and self worth, they develop new attitudes and become increasingly capable of making healthy, responsible decisions about their behavior. Treatment modules include residential and non-residential phases with emphasis on family recovery and support services, providing group and individual counseling, introduction to community 12-step groups and formal academic instruction. Orange Unified School District provides a school on the property where many of our residents are able to maintain their educational requirements. Although many adolescents are behind in school credits when they enter treatment, the majority leave Touchstones with more credits than they would have earned in a traditional school environment.
