Youth Treatment Services
Prairie Center’s youth treatment services are designed to meet the needs of youth struggling with substance misuse or addiction to drugs or alcohol. Treatment options are available for youth aged 12 to 17 (older if they are still in high school) at both our Urbana and Danville locations.
We use a harm reduction model that takes a flexible and individualized approach with each young person we see. Treatment plans are developed for each youth and are based on a comprehensive assessment done at the start of the process. Treatment-focused services for youth and teens include:
- Specialized individual and group counseling for youth and teens
- Case management services
- Family support and education
Our treatment programs help youth develop strong life skills, restructuring thought processes and helping them make healthier decisions. Individual and group counseling sessions also focus on developing social skills, leadership skills, anger management, co-dependency, boundary issues, dealing with feelings in a healthy way, family dynamics, stress management, health and wellness, drug education, relapse prevention, how to have sober fun, and more.
Prairie Center strongly encourages parent/guardian involvement in their child’s treatment process and are invited to attend sessions to help with the recovery journey.
How It Works
If a young person you know is struggling with substance abuse, please contact us at 217-328-4500 to discuss the services that might best help them. Youth can also self-refer. Physicians, hospital or school personnel, agency representatives, or law enforcement of justice officials can also refer youth, but must have this release form signed first.
Costs for services depend on many factors, including insurance benefits and/or household income. We accept many types of health insurance, Illinois Medicaid, cash, check, or credit card, as well as other third party payments. Learn more about payment options here.
Prairie Center is also committed to providing care to clients of all ages regardless of ability to pay. We offer financial assistance to ensure that anyone who needs treatment has access to it. Click here to learn more about payment and financial assistance options.
