KEY PROGRAMS Residential Treatment Program:
The Walter D. Kelly Center in West Palm Beach and the Norman C. Hayslip Center in Fort Pierce have been the temporary homes for thousands of youth struggling with addiction. Each program provides evidence-based individual, group and family therapy, strengths-based behavioral modification, and an on-site school within a traumainformed environment. Successful completion of the program is based on progressing academically, coming to terms with the impact drugs have had on the child’s life, and changing behavior that is not acceptable in society.
DATA’s outpatient program uses the evidence-based Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach to help youth and families address behavioral health issues. Care involves weekly individual or family sessions supplemented by participation in group sessions. This intervention ranges from 13 to 15 weeks and can be provided in the child’s home or at sites more accessible for the child and family.
Prevention is the most effective way to reduce mental health and substance use issues in youth as they mature. For more than 20 years, DATA has provided evidence-based prevention programs in area schools that have shown to be effective in reducing risk factors and enhancing protective factors. This program is available in nearly 20 schools.
DATA runs five evidence-based intervention programs and services for individuals and families that focus on reducing risk factors generally associated with the progression of substance use and mental health problems.
