Young Adult Intensive Outpatient Program

In each of our programs the focus is to help the young person in recovery return to pursuing their life goals, and with the treatment they need to achieve those goals.

“The Right Track” LGBTQ Specialty Track

The Right Track/LGBTQ Specialty Track is an Intensive Outpatient Program in Young Adult Services for 16- to 24-year olds who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning and are experiencing significant emotional distress who need a more skills-based therapeutic program.

Goals of the program include validating aspects of emerging identity, building on role models and “family of choice” support systems to reduce feelings of isolation, and developing skills to identify, modulate and deal with stress and stigma. There is an emphasis on expressive therapies, mindfulness/movement and family support.

In addition, as an adjunct to the clinical program, twice a month—2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month from 5 PM to 6:15 PM, there is a LGBTQ Youth Support group open to members of the community. The LGBTQ Support Group is located in the Center building, 2nd floor.
