Rushford’s teen outpatient program offers a wide range of evidence-based treatment options and modalities that improve overall wellness and promote sustained recovery.

A Wide Range of Treatments

Group therapy offers teens a network of peers that support them in creating and achieving goals in recovery through education, art, recreation and other modes.

A Holistic Approach Towards Care

Yoga is offered to all clients, family members and the community at large at the Glastonbury location, as a way to reduce stress, anxiety and depression while improving energy and self-esteem.

Addiction Treatment

The Seven Challenges® offers an evidence-based approach to treating addiction. Rather than forcing change, the innovative program motivates teens to examine the importance of their decisions and make healthier choices.

Recovery Can Take a Prescribed Path

Medication-Assisted Treatment utilizes medicines that reduce cravings and withdrawals for opioid addictions, such as buprenorphine (Suboxone®) or naltrexone (Vivitrol®), in conjunction with relapse prevention group therapy to help teens maintain recovery.

Mental Health

At Rushford our experienced staff provides assistance with treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, school issues, self-harm, and other behavioral issues. We provide our care in a safe and neutral environment for our teens to feel comfortable and welcome. 

An Evidence-Based Program

The Seven Challenges® Program is listed as an evidence-based program in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices.
