Mainstream, GLBT People welcome

This is a program of education/intervention for a young person whose alcohol or other drug use is causing problems in their lives. Participants range in age from 12 to 21 years.

The central goal of the program is to identify and change behavior before it leads to more serious problems. This program can help participants make informed decisions, but ultimately, they alone possess the power to choose.

There is a fee for the program, so please contact our office for details.

For your convenience, there are several sites in Bucks County, PA where the program is offered.
