At the Claudia Black Young Adult Center, we get right to the core of the presenting issues, whether it is addiction, trauma, depression, anxiety and/or co-occurring conditions. With the clinical expertise of Claudia Black, Ph.D., a pioneer working with both family systems and addictions, we created the foundations of our cutting-edge program that specifically meets the needs of individuals ages 18-26. Our goal is to assist young adults to embrace the recovery process, wherein they take responsibility for their own emotional, mental, and physical healing; and to facilitate family healing and healthier functioning family system. We believe that in spite of the complexity of mental health and/or addiction issues young adults face, they can launch into a life of accountably for self, greater connectedness within community and family, and at last find meaning and purpose.
- Focus on identifying and treating underlying influences of addiction
- Strong use of peer community
- Phase-based programming
Individualized TreatmentSome facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Dual Diagnosis/Co-occurring Disorders TreatmentThese two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
