Provided by Youth for Tomorrow
Youth For Tomorrow (YFT) has a 30 year record of distinguished service to vulnerable children. YFT is a nationally accredited Residential Treatment Center (RTC) providing behavioral health interventions along with educational services, including special education. YFT’s 215-acre campus consists of 10 residential homes and a nationally accredited secondary school.
On September 1 we will open the Residential Substance Abuse Program for adolescents, which focuses on
prevention and treatment of Substance Abuse Disorders through evidence based practices delivered by staff who specialize in Substance Abuse Treatment. Each participant will receive daily group therapy, weekly individual therapy, family therapy, and support for making behavior changes as well as pursuing academic goals.
This specialized program will operate with eight beds available for boys and another eight for girls, ages 14-18, who meet the criteria for placement in a clinically managed low-intensity residential program. Each participant will be treated with dignity and respect as they pursue their path of discovery and recovery during their four- to six-month stay in the Substance Abuse Program.
At Youth For Tomorrow, we have been on the cutting edge of responding to “service gaps” in our community by consistently offering a plethora of diverse services to partner with you and your most vulnerable youth:
- Co-occurring treatment for adolescents with a dual diagnosed that include substance abuse and who have mild to moderate treatment needs;
- Victims of human trafficking; and
- Teen mothers and babies.
We understand that along with treating mental health issues, many times there is a need to simultaneously treat substance abuse issues. We have the ability at Youth For Tomorrow to do just that. Services offered include:
- Residential Substance Abuse Treatment;
- Secondary educational services, both general and special education;
- Bilingual residential counselors, case managers and licensed clinicians who are experienced in serving immigrant children;
- Emergency intakes – 24/7 admissions process.
At YFT we understand emergencies do not happen during conventional office hours and we are able to assist with emergency intakes. We have a light screening process and can provide same day placements within our residential treatment facility.
