Outpatient sites offer educational, individual, group, and family counseling. Parent educations workshops on parenting teens struggling with substance use are available in both English and Spanish. Case Management services are available to support and encourage young adults with social, educational, and vocational needs. Appointments are available in the morning, afternoon, or evening.
Outpatient sites offer services up to 6 hours per week based on the client’s needs. Services are offered at centrally based clinics as well as at particular school sites throughout Santa Clara County.
Treatment services are offered to youth without mandated parent involvement. We do encourage parents to be involved, as treatment is more effective when there is family or caregiver encouragement.

Clients attend a minimum of 6 hours per week and are offered individual, group and family therapy.
