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.

HOPE HEALTH HEALING
It is BIOGENETIC
It is a PRIMARY Illness
- You don't choose to acquire it.
- A family history of drug/alcohol problems puts you at greater risk.
It is a CHRONIC Illness
- If you have chemical dependency, it's not a symptom of some other problem.
- If you have chemical dependency and other problems, your chemical dependency will interfere with treatment for other problems unless the chemical dependency is also treated.
It is a PROGRESSIVE Illness
- It won't go away because you ignore it, don't like it or don't want to believe you have it.
- It's not "just a phase".
If left Untreated, Addiction can be FATAL
- Without treatment it will eventually get worse.
- It usually gets worse more quickly for women and young people.
- Drinking and driving
- Overdose/alcohol poisoning
- Organ Failure
