Adolescent Services

Adolescent Recovery Center – Chemical Dependency Services

The Adolescent Recovery Center (ARC) at The Ridge is designed to serve adolescents, ages 12 to 17 (or 18 if still in high school), suffering from substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. The ARC specializes in the treatment of adolescents whose substance abuse problems are manifested primarily through legal problems, school difficulties, relationship problems, and an inability to maintain sobriety.

The ARC offers semi-private rooms located on a self-contained unit. The treatment team is made up of qualified professionals including a medical director, registered nurses and licensed therapists.

All ARC services are reimbursable by Medicaid and most commercial insurance, once approved. The expected length of stay is 28 to 55 days, but lengths of stay are modified to best serve each participant’s situation and needs.

The Treatment Program at the Adolescent Recovery Center

The ARC program model utilizes The Seven Challenges, an evidence-based treatment model for adolescents presenting with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. The Seven Challenges helps young people look at themselves, understand what it takes to give up a drug abusing lifestyle-and prepare for and attain success when they commit to making changes.

Because chemical dependency is a family illness-affecting all members, family/guardian involvement in the treatment process is essential to the success of the participant. Individual family therapy and multifamily education groups are offered for all participants.

In addition, participants will attend school at The Ridge during the academic year with certified teachers of the Fayette County School System.
