William J. McCord Adolescent Treatment Facility

Freestanding Chemical Dependency Rehab

The Program
"In Its Own Words"


Self Description:

"Believing that all adolescents, not just those with monetary resouraces, deserve high quality treatment, we provide individually tailored services to adolescents in a respectful and friendly environment."

Treatment Philosophy:

"We recognize the distinct differences of individuals and treat those differences. We believe in wholistically treating the adolescent's physical, emotional, social, educational and developmental needs."

Approach to Dual Diagnosis:

"We treat all disorders concomitantly."

Family Program:

"Individual family sessions are scheduled weekly around the parent's schedules. Family counseling is a top priority to begin the process of mending relationship and developing structure."

Position on 12 Step Involvement:

"12 Step concepts are introduced, however, are not pushed onto the adolescent. We encourage involvement in self help groups in any way it can be obtained."

Position on Confrontation:

"We caringly confront adolescents on their behaviors while not getting into a power struggle. Confrontation works best when the adolescent doesn't realize he's being confronted."
