Chemical Dependency Program

Chemical Dependency Program

Youth entering treatment at Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch are assessed for chemical dependency. YBGR has an on-site licensed addiction counselor available for all youth determined to be at risk of or engaged in substance abuse. Youth that reflect a substance use disorder diagnosis are placed in substance abuse programming, which consists of any combination of individual, group, and family counseling. The sessions may consist of harm reduction, motivational enhancement, and cognitive therapy, as well as participation in on-campus support groups for alcohol and drug awareness.
