Claudia Black Young Adult Center

Young adult inpatient treatment for trauma, addiction, and more

Claudia Black Young Adult Center

We get right to the core of the presenting issues, whether it is an addiction, trauma, depression, anxiety, and/or co-occurring conditions. With the clinical expertise of Claudia Black, PhD, a pioneer working with both family systems and addictions, we created the foundations of our cutting-edge program that specifically meets the needs of individuals ages 18-26. Our goal is to assist young adults to embrace the recovery process, taking responsibility for their own emotional, mental, and physical healing as well as to facilitate family healing and a healthier functioning family system.
