Adolescent Services

COPE’s Adolescent Program is designed to provide adolescents with the support, skills and knowledge necessary to successfully stop using drugs and alcohol, as well as remain drug and alcohol free. Individual treatment planning allows our clinical team to address adolescents’ co-occurring and mental health disorders.  Some common challenges our adolescents face are symptoms of depression, anxiety, behavioral problems, family conflict, school issues and legal involvement.

The Choices and Consequences Group is designed for adolescent clients who do not meet the criteria for a substance use disorder.  most members have experienced negative consequences due to their substance use, requiring a brief intervention.  The group has both a psycho-educational and a process component.  This group allows clinicians to assess if adolescents are at risk for continued substance abuse and addiction.

Substance Abuse Groups utilizes both didactic and process sessions. The adolescent substance abuse treatment draws heavily on Cognitive Behavioral techniques, as well as motivational interviewing.

Our Gender Specific & Seeking Safety Group is a manual-guided cognitive-behavioral therapy group for co-occurring, PTSK and addictions.  It is a present-focused therapy with a goal of helping clients attain safety in their relationships, thinking, behavior and emotions.  It is designed for clients who have experienced trauma or chaos in their lives so that they can gain healthy coping skills to utilize in their daily life.  Topics include – but are not limited to – setting healthy boundaries, asking for help, life choices, and improving communication skills.

The Adolescent Anger Management program is a minimum of 10 groups designed to give participants the skills to handle their anger in a more effective way. It is an interactive group that provides psycho-educational information in addition to opportunities for role play and group discussion. Identifying triggers to their anger and how to effectively cope with them is an important focus of the group. This group also assists teens in developing more effective communication skills.
