NewStart Adolescent Services 

During the initial assessment, adolescents and their caregivers will meet with a NewStart counselor to determine an individualized treatment plan. This plan will be based on the patient's needs and unique circumstances.  

Individual Treatment Services 

We may recommend individual treatment with a counselor for adolescents who would respond best to a one-on-one counseling approach. We establish specific treatment goals and schedule regular appointments with the adolescent and, if indicated, the family. The counselor will also collaborate with other support systems in the adolescent's life, if recommended, as part of the treatment plan.


Insurance coverage for patients with substance use disorders varies with each insurance carrier. Please contact your insurance carrier for questions about your coverage.
