Assessing Adolescent Treatment Programs.
Residential treatment for alcohol/drug abuse may be a significant event in an adolescent's life. School counselors may further the experience by developing familiarity with available treatment programs. Having all available options at hand, a client or family can make a choice, thereby gaining an investment in the treatment decision. In order to help counselors guide families seeking information about residential treatment programs, this fact sheet lists questions to consider in several areas. Cost, Program Goals, Staff Credentials, Program Components, Aftercare, School-Related Education, Service Agreements, Relapse Programs, and Program Location are the sections covered. (MSF)
