Our Substance Abuse Treatment Program helps young men, ages 12-18, address issues related to their substance abuse by building upon and redirecting their strengths into constructive behaviors.
Using The Seven Challenges substance abuse treatment model, our trained staff help the young men understand how their behavior affects others, and how they can successfully return or remain in their homes, schools and communities. By creating a climate of mutual respect, The Seven Challenges program approaches youth from a strength-based perspective, rather than confronting youth aggressively. Youth placed in our residential substance abuse program have experienced court involvement and require a higher level of structure and security than a community-based program can adequately provide. Starrs Substance Abuse Treatment is a 90-day residential treatment program.
