  Youth Overcoming Drug Abuse


Compassionate care for adolescents and young adults

with substance use and co-occurring disorders.

The YODA program provides free treatment services to youth ages 13-18 who are uninsured or have insurance that will not pay for treatment.

Our Intensive Outpatient Program is held 3:30-6:30, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Fridays. At YODA, we meet our patients where they are and guide them towards change, providing therapeutic services with empathy and non-confrontational care. Our model is based on evidence-based therapeutic models including cognitive behavioral and motivational enhancement therapies offered with consideration of the realities and diversity of our patients.

The YODA program is located at the Youth Opportunity Center
