DAAC offers outpatient programs and services for adolescents with alcohol and drug problems, and their parents. Adolescence – even without alcohol and drug abuse -- is a difficult maturational passage. It is the bridge between the dependency of childhood and adult identity. Often, it is a time of rebellion, "trying on" adult behaviors and extensive limit testing in all areas. Many youth are unable to handle physical and emotional consequences when alcohol and drugs are involved. Treatment for adolescents not only results in a reduction in heavy drinking and drug use, but adolescents receiving treatment are found to have fewer thoughts of suicide, lower hostility, higher self-esteem and they report better-than-average grades.
