Adolescent Outpatient

People” include children and adolescents who know the tragedy of alcohol and drug problems much too early. No other group needs a wider selection of services. At McLeod Center, adolescent needs are treated with care and respect. Adolescent Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient (SAIOP) is available to both males and females ages 13-17. An educational program on campus allows Day SAIOP clients to concentrate on substance abuse issues and improve academic functioning. Evening SAIOP clients are able to remain at their school and access treatment in the afternoon and evening hours.
