Juneau Youth Services offers substance abuse counseling in an outpatient setting to youth ages 12-21 in our Chemical Dependency (CD) program. This is a 16 week program which educates youth about the effects of substances and teaches healthy replacement activities through individual, group, and family therapy as applicable. Continued support following the 16 week program is offered as well. Staff supports clients toward achieving sobriety and reducing harm by identifying resources and processing patterns of substance use then incorporating healthy ways to cope with stress and urges to use. Collaboration with community agencies is important as well to connect clients and families to ongoing resources. There are three levels of care within the CD program: Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, and Aftercare. Clients are recommended for a specific level of care at the time of assessment based on their current needs.
