Summer Sky’s Adolescent Treatment Program was developed to provide the highest quality of addiction treatment in the United States. Great care has been taken to develop a program that meets the individual needs of our adolescent population. Evidence based practices are used in all aspects of addressing our adolescents addictions and introducing them to the world of recovery is a task that we honor at Summer Sky. The adolescent program is not your typical institutional type of treatment program. We have incorporated many different types of therapy to our program. Some of the therapies are cognitive behavioral therapy; Rational Emotive Therapy, Equine therapy, Music Therapy, Art Therapy, Aquatic Therapy, and we introduce our adolescents to practical 12-step modalities that they can actual use in the real world. We stress the importance of social skills and life skills while helping each adolescent develop a relapse prevention plan that is very easy for them to follow. The family support system is incorporated into the relapse prevention plan to help with holding the adolescent accountable to the recovery process.
