Parent Discussion Group:
Evidenced-based information will support and guide parents toward improved teen parent relationships.
Teen Life Skills Discussion Group: This group will be led by a professional counselor with the assistance of peer mentors. The format is on an open topical discussion of issues teens face daily including; peers, feelings, relationships, and alternative activities. The group focuses on teaching resiliency to teens so that they can better manage their lives.
Healthy Activities: The culture of youth has always been one of seeking fun, exciting experiences. Increasingly, teens are not involved in healthy fun activities. At the Changes Program, teens will have the option of being involved in planning, coordinating and participating in fun activities that are substance free.
Service Learning: Freedom4U has a service-learning network where teens have the option of directly participating in a specific cause. In this way, teens will learn to help someone in greater need then themselves or help a needy cause. There will be several service options available.
Personal individual and family therapy options are also available.
The Changes Group is a weekly group for ten weeks. There are weekly separate parent and teen 90-minute groups.
Parent and/or teens may attend at any time.
