In addition, to the residential component, SYD provides support to youth and their families/caregivers seeking assessment, consultation, referrals, and assistance with pre and post withdrawal treatment planning. The program recognizes that recovery from addiction is a multi-phase, long term process. Someone who wishes to stop using substances needs more than just strong will power-they often need on going professional support. SYD collaborates with youth and their supports to develop a plan so each youth has an opportunity to meet their personal goals. The SYD program welcomes all members of the youth community including youth experiencing co-occurring disorders.
