Alternatives for Youth


Welcome to AY

AY recognizes that treatment for youth must consider their cognitive, emotional and social development and be aware of the impact that alcohol and drugs has on the normal transition to adulthood.

The philosophy of AY is that treatment must be customized to meet individual needs and respect client choice.
