Catoctin Summit Adolescent Program – Residential
 Treatment Philosophy
Adolescents in treatment for substance use disorders need a supportive environment in which to continue their treatment, explore new behaviors, and test out drug-free lifestyles. For some adolescent’ outpatient or short term residential treatment is not enough, and a program with a longer length of stay is necessary. 
Catoctin Summit Adolescent Program’s Residential Program provides longer term individualized and evidence informed interventions. Facilitating the development of a lasting recovery lifestyle involves targeting both substance abuse and other co-occurring disorders. We believe that because of adolescent’s unique developmental stage, our job is as much about habilitation as it is about re-habilitation.  Our commitment is to a holistic approach to treatment in which the youth’s physical, emotional, social, spiritual, educational, recreational, and family needs are addressed as a part of our services.
Our experienced on-site staff provides the highest level of compassionate and humanistic care and includes masters-level clinicians, certified addictions counselors, community health workers, a certified teacher and a nurse. We also incorporate the resources of our larger interdisciplinary team located within the Division of Behavioral Health that includes psychiatric care, sexual health in recovery services, and outpatient mental health therapy.
