Adolescent Addiction Clinically Managed Medium-Intensity Residential

Adolescent Addiction

General Information
Description of ServiceResidential Treatmentis offered to adolescents who need a controlled, full time, structured setting to function effectively. Treatment in Residential Care can be short term (one to three months) or long term (four to twelve months). Treatment progress is continuously monitored and evaluated using ASAM criteria to ensure that the adolescent is receiving the appropriate level of care. A full High School education program is offered, and on-line college classes are available to High School graduates while the adolescent is in the Daytop residential treatment program.

Residential Treatment is either Medically Determined or Alternative to Incarceration.

Medically Determined
Adolescents without legal constraints are referred to Daytop NJ by Insurance, Managed Care, Employee Assistance Programs, or by families paying privately. As soon as clinically appropriate according to the ASAM criteria, the adolescent "steps down" to a less restrictive level of treatment. Medically Determined treatment tends to be short term.

Alternative to Incarceration
Adolescents who are at risk or have already become involved with the legal system, or who have severe family or school problems as a result of their substance abuse, often have conditions imposed by the family, school or legal system. Daytop treats the client within the parameters of these conditions. These adolescents tend to remain in residential treatment long term.
