What is iTHRIVE and How Can We Help?
AN EARLY INTERVENTION SUBSTANCE ABUSE PROGRAM
iTHRIVE is an early intervention program for teens 12-17 years of age that are struggling with alcohol or drug abuse. It’s also a program that works closely with the parents of the participating teens giving them the support they need to help their struggling teen.
There are 6 meetings in a session meeting once a week for two hours from 6:30-8:30 pm. An hour long intake must take place before enrolling for a 6 week group.
We offer groups in 3 locations.
In the teen sessions, youth receive skills needed to understand why they use, what their triggers are, and how to stop the abuse. It is a safe and supportive arena in which to listen, share and learn. While the teens meet the parents meet separately. The parents learn how substance abuse affects the developing adolescent brain, better communication skills, how to set boundaries and get support from other parents who are experiencing the same thing.
The cost of the 6-week session is on a sliding fee scale depending on family yearly gross income, (please call for fee).
TO REGISTER call us at 303-776-8184 to schedule an intake with both the teen and the parent/guardian.
To learn more about iTHRIVE, visit our website at www.thrivingteens.org or give us a call.
