Substance Use Treatment and Services at Alexander Youth Network

Pairing substance use with behavioral health treatment allows adolescents and teens to identify triggers and encourage healthy decision making.

Substance use continues to impact adolescent and teen population throughout North Carolina. Within the juvenile justice system for the state, 21.5% of youth demonstrate are current substance users. Among middle and high school youth in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, 12.9% are current alcohol users, 13.3% are current marijuana users, and 12.8% are current e-cigarette users.

Alexander offers solutions to meet your child’s academic, behavioral, and substance-related challenges.

Through the substance use programs at Alexander, we are able to offer residential, outpatient, and intensive outpatient substance use treatment programs. These programs combine counseling with psychoeducation, conflict resolution, anger management, crisis intervention, and academics to promote abstinence.

This dual partnership allows therapists and counselors at Alexander to identify underlying behavioral health challenges that are triggers for substance use.

Screening services are available in Charlotte, North Carolina. Anuvia also supports adolescent and teenage clients through our affiliate agency The Relatives.
