Substance Abuse Treatment

Devereux Florida recognizes that many youth struggle with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse challenges. In order to address these treatment needs, Devereux Florida offers a substance abuse treatment track designed to meet the recovery needs of each individual child and adolescent facing the challenges of substance abuse or dependence.

Devereux currently operates treatment tracks thorough a six month treatment regimen dependent upon individual need:

  • Programming for at-risk children and adolescents
  • Programming for children and adolescents with substance abuse or dependence

Each resident in the track participates in up to four groups per week, and may receive individual substance abuse treatment also if determined necessary by the treatment team. The groups target substance abuse education, as well as an opportunity to identify, process and address the emotional and social experiences that led to substance abuse or dependence.

Other components of the substance abuse treatment track include:

  • Specialized Assessment using the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI)
  • Process Groups
  • Individual therapy
  • Opportunities for exposure to Twelve Step community support groups as appropriate
  • Individualized relapse prevention plans
