If you or someone you care about is diagnosed with a mental illness, it's important to trust the people you turn to for treatment. Rushford provides compassionate and individualized care that offers people coping with mental illness a route to recovery that is specifically tailored to their needs.

Rushford is the region's leading provider of adolescent addiction treatment programs. Our continuum of substance abuse services for adolescents includes early intervention, evaluation and assessment, outpatient and residential treatment, and relapse prevention. Our programs utilize evidence based approaches, including the Seven Challenges and GORSKI-CENAPS Model, in providing effective treatment for teen substance use and abuse.

Improving Outcomes for Adolescent Substance Abuse
Traditional approaches to working with adolescents with alcohol and/or drug problems have produced high drop-out rates and disappointing outcomes. Most young people do not seek substance abuse treatment of their own free will. By any definition, they are in the early stages of change. Our programs incorporate the latest research findings in the effective treatment of adolescent substance use and abuse. The first step involves conducting a comprehensive assessment and evaluation of the adolescent and his or her family to determine the most effective approach for treatment. Once an approach is developed, we continuously monitor and assess the adolescent’s progress toward achieving treatment goals to ensure the right level of care is being provided at the right time.

Rushford offers solutions to problems that can seem hopeless. If you or someone you love is struggling with an alcohol or drug addiction, we provide compassionate care and effective treatment to achieve recovery.
There are dozens of addictive substances ranging from alcohol to illegal drugs like heroin and cocaine to various prescription drugs. Each has unique withdrawal symptoms and short and long-term side effects, including emotional and mental disorders, that must be accommodated in successful substance abuse treatment programs. When you consider that programs also need to take into account a number of other factors unique to each patient: the reason for taking drugs, age, culture, gender, other possible addictions, it's clear why Rushford's individualized alcohol and drug treatment programs may provide you or your loved one the best possible chance for recovery.

Rushford’s substance abuse treatment philosophy is based on flexible intervention, a process involving client, family and care team in a thorough initial assessment and staff evaluation of the client’s physical and psycho-social status combined with immediate and long term needs. This process allows for matching the client to the appropriate treatment approach and program while continuously monitoring and assessing the individual’s recovery to expedite the ongoing placement in the appropriate level of care.
