Our Levels of Signature Service

Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Treatment (new)
Long term program designed for adolescents, ages 14-18 years old, this program will meet twice a week, every week on Mondays and Thursdays. Also, 1 Saturday a month. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), 1.1 million American adolescents needed treatment for substance use disorders in 2016, and the majority relapsed shortly after because there aren’t enough local continuing care, recovery support services available to this specific group of addicts. We aim to change that.

How the Commencement Center Works

The Commencement Center provides treatment based on the most recent medical understanding of addiction as a disease of the brain which affects the addict, the family and the community. We understand that addiction is an allergy of the body combined with an obsession of the mind. An alcoholic or drug addict is not a bad person; he or she is a person with a disease. We believe in helping the client recover quickly from alcohol and prescription drug addiction, and in giving them the support they need so they have the best chance at long-term sobriety.
