Youth & Families
Native American Connections serves children and youth in need of mental health support due to behavioral challenges, family difficulties and substance use. For children and youth 10 through 25, we provide:
- Assessment and evaluation
- Counseling and behavioral health
- Community-based child and family teams (CFT)
- Case management, family support and recovery coaching
- Support activities for youth transitioning to young adulthood
- Services for youth who are uninsured or underinsured
We also provide adolescent intensive outpatient and substance use services including:
- Outpatient substance use counseling
- Standing Stronger, a 12-week intensive outpatient program that features:
- Decision making skills
- Relapse management
- Family counseling
- Recovery coaching
- Cultural groups and activities
NEW: For youth 16-25 years of age, Native American Connections has added the TREE Program to help young adults and their families address substance use and begin recovery. With funding support provided by SAMHSA, youth and families are offered counseling, wraparound services and connections to community resources.
To help improve family connections and stability, we provide family counseling sessions that address conflict among family members, communication challenges and issues unique to the recovering family. Families are also encouraged to attend our Circle of Strength Program. Presented over one weekend, Circle of Strength brings families together to promote family wellness while supporting family members in recovery. Through art and music, along with spiritual and cultural activities, family members learn to how to set boundaries, improve communication and problem-solving techniques and to work towards common family goals.
