Substance Abuse

Students who struggle with chemical dependency issues may attend regular 12-step addiction meetings in the community.  Drug and alcohol educational groups are also provided within the home or through a community substance abuse counselor as needed. 

Student calls to family can occur on a weekly basis.  Parents have the opportunity to talk directly with the Director or members of the Parenting Team about their child’s progress and also meet by phone with their child’s therapist. Parents are an integral part of this process and we communicate with them regularly and enlist them as part of the team.   Parents are encouraged to work with an individual therapist, a family therapist, or a parent coach while their child is at Explorations to maximize the investment into the family. HomeBase parents continue to grow and heal with their children, despite the physical distance between them.
