What We Offer:
Youth Addiction and Concurrent Disorders Service (YACDS) offers treatment to
youth (14 to 24 years) who have substance use challenges/concerns with or
without concurrent mental health concerns, and to their families.
We work from a harm reduction model and take a flexible and individualized
approach with youth. Treatment plans are based on a comprehensive assessment,
focused on identifying treatment needs and issues in the areas of both
substance use and mental health.
We offer a broad range of outpatient services for youth, including:
and group counseling
- case management
- psychiatric consultation and follow-up
- Family support and education
We have 2 Section 23 TDSB academic day treatment programs (R.E.A.C.H. and Youth
Day Hospital). R.E.A.C.H offers clients ages 16-21 years the
opportunity to earn secondary school credits while participating in treatment.
Our Youth Day Hospital program will provide youth 14-18 years intensive
outpatient support for stabilization, assessment and treatment towards
preventing hospitalization, as well as transitioning to lower intensity
services and supporting academic functioning.
