  1. Program Provider
  2. Full Description
Plaza Academy

Program Summary: The Plaza Academy's school-based substance abuse treatment program provides services for all of its 7th- 12th grade students who are at-risk for substance abuse due to their lack of success in their previous environment. This program provides individual counseling, family counseling, group counseling, group education, case 
management and special education services for the students. 

Research has shown that adolescents who stay in school and receive substance abuse treatment and education are more likely than their peers to remain drug free. 

Upon enrollment, students are given a drug and alcohol screening as well as a psychological assessment by Plaza Academy's social worker. The social worker assesses the needs of each student to create an individually tailored treatment plan.
