Substance Use, Mental Health & College Students

Today’s college students are facing mental health difficulties at levels never before seen. We believe these students should be able to face their challenges and seek treatment amongst their peers while staying in school.

A Treatment Solution for College Students

We provide clinical Intensive Outpatient Programs that are only available to young adults on a college track with mental health and substance use disorders. We use evidence-based practices and peer-based support to help students heal and ultimately thrive in school and life.
