(Canton, Ohio) – CommQuest Services’ Adolescent Campus is announcing it will now offer outpatient services, expanding the scope of treatment offered at the location to achieve an extended continuum of care for adolescents all in one location.
The main addition, according to officials, is the Intensive Outpatient program, which consists of a two-and-a-half-hour intensive group session Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for six to 12 weeks. Each week, adolescents will also receive individual counseling, case management services, and treatment for mild to moderate mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and other diagnoses as needed.
Director of Adolescent Residential Services, Andrew Alley, says, “The Adolescent Campus is now a one-stop-shop for all the services required to treat adolescent alcohol and substance use, as well as co-occurring mental health concerns.” Officials add that the goal of the program is to address adolescents’ needs with the necessary intervention.
The outpatient program also allows clients who attend Bright or Smith House to continue receiving services to heal after their 60-120 day stay in residential treatment ends. “Caring for adolescents struggling with substance use is what we do best,” added Allen. “We are so happy to be able to provide another crucial step on the path to recovery in order to serve our clients longer, which can increase the longevity of their sobriety.”
The Adolescent Campus’ BRIGHT and Smith Houses are non-medical residential substance use treatment facilities for teenage boys and girls ages 14-19. Officials indicate they emphasize abstinence and recovery in a supportive environment with a focus on treatment and recovery of the body, mind, and spirit. Additionally, clients receive individual and group counseling, and families are strongly encouraged to take part in family counseling sessions offered.
