Youth in Crisis
When your child is out of control it can feel like there is nothing you can do. Or that all of your energy is devoted to keeping your child safe. This is exhausting and scary for you. And even more so for your child.
Is your child acting violently or dangerously, using drugs or alcohol, or threatening to harm himself or others? Is this behavior more than you can handle on your own?

Psychiatric services and medication management are also available.
Substance Use Programs
Underage drinking and drug use is sky-rocketing in Connecticut. We work with youth to help them develop pro-social activities and behaviors to prevent or decrease the use of controlled substances. For parents who struggle with substance use and are at risk of their children removed from the home, we offer intensive in-home support
