The Pathways Boys Program provides residential drug and alcohol treatment services for juvenile offenders, ages 12 to 18. Most youth stay an average of six months before graduating and returning home or to other community settings. Components of the Pathways Boys Program include:

Residential Treatment

The program provides therapy with 24-hour supervised group living. Youth learn new skills and behaviors, and as they increase their responsibility, they are rewarded with privileges appropriate to the recovery process.

Substance Abuse Treatment

Pathways uses the Dialectical Behavioral Therapy approach to treatment with an emphasis on the internalizing of motivation for the youth to live a clean and sober lifestyle. The program additionally focuses on relapse prevention and introduces the 12-step model to ensure support following treatment.

Group Skill Building

Youth participate in frequent group skills training sessions where criminal thinking and behavior are addressed. They develop new tools to manage their emotions, make responsible decisions, and improve social skills.

Academic Instruction/Drug & Alcohol Education

The state-certified, on-site school provides classes in language arts, math, health education, and more. Some youth prepare for GED tests while others earn credit toward high school diplomas.  

Family Counseling

A family therapist meets regularly with youth and their families to help make changes resulting in improved family relationships.
