Child, Youth and Family Services
It is estimated that as many as one in five children and adolescents may have a mental health disorder that can be identified and require treatment. Children and adolescents who use alcohol and drugs at an early age are more likely to face problems with substance use as adults. Further, young people suffering from trauma are at a higher risk for drug or alcohol use. Addressing the emotional challenges can foster healing and growth while using substances as a coping mechanism can lead to longer-term health issues.
Through early intervention and treatment, children and youth with emotional and behavioral needs can live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives. We have specialist in this area that can provide the help that you and your family need.
