Adolescent Program

Connections adolescent program is co-ed for teens ages 13-18 years. It is a lower committment than an intensive
outpatient program (IOP), though it still lends significant support and a place to explore and develop sobriety skills and tools. This program includes Teen group, Adolescent Family Night and Adolescent Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Teens can optionally be involved in less of the available curriculum if they do not require as much support. All three nights are recommended initially. Family night involves the adolescent and family members as addiction affects the whole family. This program lends support and a non-judgmental space to explore sobriety, as well as opportunities to build relationships with other teens going through similar things. Teens are provided with 12-step introduction, relevant speakers and peer mentors as well as opportunities outside the core program for yoga, meditation and art therapy. During this program teens will continue to meet separately for individual counseling with their primary counselor for individual progress and accountability.

In addition, for adolescents who need a higher level of care, one of the leading teen residential programs in the country is just a short drive away at the Rosecrance Griffin Williamson Campus in Rockford, Illinois. The facility provides a peaceful setting for recovery with an on-site school, chapel, gymnasium, conservatory, healing garden, and fitness center ideal for recreational and experiential therapies.

Adolescents who complete treatment may have the option to take their next steps in recovery at Rosecrance Marlowe House, a recovery home located on the campus site.
Marlowe House is a warm, safe space where clients receive counseling, 12-Step meetings, educational opportunities, relapse prevention, and life skills development.
