ADAPT is a comprehensive substance abuse treatment and education program which provides intervention to the court-involved youth and their parents/guardians. ADAPT includes facilitation of Alcohol and Drug Assessment for adolescents to evaluate and identify treatment level requirements, provides referrals and connection to supplemental community services and to in-house treatment programs. ADAPT utilizes evidence-based protocols including Motivational Enhancement Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and the SUPER STOP! (R) Program, in group settings, to meet the treatment needs of mild and moderate substance use disordered youth. In addition, ADAPT includes a dynamic parenting education program named PASS (Parenting Adolescents Strategies and Support) to provide education and support to the parents/guardians in order to improve family dynamics in addressing youth substance use.
