iThrive Fall Classes are now open

iTHRIVE is a bi-lingual early intervention program for teens struggling with drugs/alcohol abuse and it is also for the parents of these teens. Through a powerful combination of group therapy, experiential learning, parent education and individual psychotherapy (optional to both parents and teens), iTHRIVE supports an adolescent’s right to joy and productivity and we also support their families in reclaiming hope and happiness. Our groups offer a place for teens and parents to talk and process, receive support, and learn the tools and skills they need for recovery and for repairing relationships. On top of that, teen groups and fields trips demonstrate to them that there are many other ways to enjoy life, disconnect, self-sooth, and feel amazing in their bodies.  We work to help teens and families thrive.
