At Ascend, we offer residential treatment for teens that suffer from a number of mental health issues and substance use concerns. While alcohol, marijuana, opiates, inhalants, and benzodiazepines are among the commonly abused substances we see in treatment, there are more that we can address within our facilities. Please review each of these most commonly abused substances during adolescence to learn more about the warning signs, symptoms, and causes, and explore our approach to treatment:

Specialized Treatment Facilities

Ascend currently has two treatment facilities that are capable of addressing the needs of teens who abuse substances to cope with their mental health concerns.

  • Empress House Virtual Tour: A facility that addresses the underlying mental health concerns that prompt teens to use substances as a coping mechanism.
  • Trails House: This is a boy-only facility that focuses on recreational therapy and also addresses mental health and substance use.
