Saint Luke's Hospital Residential Substance Abuse Prevention

The Crittenton Children's Center is a level 4+ facility that provides intensive inpatient services to youth ages 12-18 from Jackson County violence "hot spots" and the surrounding areas. Approximately 100 youth receive treatment services each year as they deal with complex trauma, as well as mental health and behavioral issues. 

All residential residents are assessed for substance abuse histories upon admission and placed into a program (low, moderate, or high-risk) that best meets their needs. Residents may attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, Alateen meetings, and an LGBTQ support group, in addition to on-campus schooling and individual, family and group therapies. The purpose of this program is to prevent substance abuse among vulnerable, at-risk youth who often come from environments of violence, abuse, neglect and lack of access to resources.
