Substance Abuse Treatment

Drug and alcohol abuse is a common issue with the youth serviced at the Juvenile Probation Dept. We serve children by referring them to local mental health services and/or placing them in the MRT (Moral Recognation Treatment) Program . MRT is a weekly group that meets for 12 weeks at the Juvenile Probation Dept. The Probation Dept also does drug screening on youth who are ordered by the court to be supervised.

Adolescent Intramural Mentoring Program (AIM)

The AIM Program pairs at-risk youth with positive adult mentors from the community. The youth and mentors participate in YMCA league volleyball and a fishing program.


Adolescent Community Enrichment (ACE)

This is an intensive program that assists youth in developing positive thinking to encourage improved behavior for success in the home, school, and community. This court-ordered program targets youth whose behavior has put them at risk for placement at a residential treatment facility or the Department of Corrections. The modalities of individual and group therapy are used to address personal issues such as anger management, healthy relationships, conflict resolution, etc.

Home/School Based Programs

Home Based Programs serve children and adolescents who are currently on probation or displaying at-risk behaviors. Each child served will receive support from a case manager within the home, school, and community. Overall goals of the program include assisting children/adolescents and their families with stress management by learning new coping strategies, providing support by linking to community resources and promoting positive school relationships, implementing skill-building strategies to improve behavior, social skills, and interpersonal skills, and offering educational opportunities related to behavior management, parenting, and child-specific needs.

Outpatient Therapy

Many issues today can be sorted out with the help of a trained professional. Outpatient therapy occurs at a local mental health center weekly, bi-weekly, or even monthly to attempt to work with the youth with issues with substance abuse, issues at home,  supporting positive change,  and overall functioning.
