Parents/Teens – need help with substance abuse?

Here is a great resource for getting help with substance abuse:


 iTHRIVE is an early intervention program for teens 12-17 years of age that are struggling with alcohol or drug use.  It’s also a program that works closely with the parents/guardians of the participating teens.

There are 6 meetings in a session.  Intakes for the upcoming sessions must be scheduled by February 28, 2014. Each evening begins at 6:00 pm and goes until 8:00 pm.

The teens will be in a group led by Dr. Alexis Saccoman, a doctor of psychology with years of experience in the substance abuse arena for youth and families.  In the teen sessions, youth will receive skills needed to understand why they use, what their triggers are, and how to stop the use.  It is a safe and supportive arena in which to listen, share and learn.

While the teens meet, the parents/guardians meet separately with Leon Bartholomay, CAC III counselor with many years of experience in the addiction field with teens and families.  The parents will learn new skills around the effects of substances on the developing brain, 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.  If you are with Boulder Valley School District complete the Google doc form.
