Youth Treatment Services
The goal of Youth Treatment Services is the placement/referral of at risk youth in an appropriate setting. This is done through an assessment process which includes the CASI (Comprehensive Adolescent Severity Inventory), a parent questionnaire, and interviews with youth and their parent/guardian. The assessment fee is $80.
After the assessment a recommendation may be made for a variety of services depending on the best care for the individual. These may include:
An individual referred to treatment may be involved in individual counseling, group therapy, educational groups, social skills/behavior modification groups, cognitive restructuring, family therapy, and drug screening.
The cost for all treatment services contracted through the Utah County Division of Substance Abuse are based on a sliding scale fee.
Science based prevention programs offered by the Division include Parents Who Care, Communities That Care, and the Prevention Research Institute's Prime for Life under age 21 curriculum for youth with drug and alcohol related legal charges.
We also support school district based programs such as Prevention Dimensions and Student Assistance Programs.
