Aspire Counseling Center

Program is designed specifically to meet the needs of adolescents aged 13-18 struggling with substance use disorder and related mental health conditions.

At ASPIRE they provide the highest quality of care in a safe and nurturing environment that promotes healing and abstinence while developing coping skills to foster self-esteem and positive long-term change. At ASPIRE they create a setting where teens and families feel valued and engaged. 

Adolescent treatment has several unique qualities, a predominant one being that in these years, the brain is developing and most vulnerable to forming neurological and cognitive attachments to addictive patterns.

There is no time more crucial to seek treatment than in adolescence. Research has shown that this is the only time to halt or reverse addiction from propelling into adulthood.

At Aspire they work to heal the whole person and the whole family. 

Their goal is to restore hope, laughter, and communication to adolescents and families while supporting complete abstinence from all substances.

ASPIRE’s PHP program is designed for adolescents aged 13-18 who do not require the intensity of a hospital setting but are struggling with substance use and related emotional issues that need to be addressed more intensely than what can be provided in a traditional outpatient setting.

The Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to give structure and support to adolescents that continue to live at home and go to school. 

The goal of the Outpatient Program can be a step down from the IOP level of care or the initial recommended level of care.  The Outpatient Program is appropriate for adolescents that are in the early stages of substance use but have not yet suffered a multitude of negative consequences from their use.  This program offers substance abuse education and prevention while supporting complete abstinence from all substances.  Teens gain an awareness of the harmful consequences of continued use while developing healthy coping, communication, and refusal skills.  

The Outpatient Program meets 2 days weekly for 60 minutes a day.  Therapies include group, individual, and family sessions.

The goal of Early Intervention is to help Adolescents who show some evidence of chemical use.  Early Intervention is critical to help prevent a substance use disorder from developing over time.  This group will focus on risk factors for dependency, education into the disease concept of addiction and the concept of progression and denial.  

The Early Intervention group meets 1 to 2x’s weekly for 1 hour.

Aftercare services as well as Family Support Services are also available.
