Philosophy of the Summit Outpatient Program:
With a framework structured around the Adolescent Community Reinforcement Act (A-CRA), the Summit Outpatient Program helps adolescent members confront and overcome challenges related to substance use. The goal of the program is to reinforce the positive aspects of the member’s life through constructive lifestyle choices that promote sobriety over the use and abuse of substances.
The Summit Outpatient Program:
- Utilizes positive reinforcement modeling and role-playing, which guide adolescents to find their own “payoffs” by learning new skills and behaviors creating their own motivation to make a permanent change.
- Views substance use as a behavior that is intertwined with, and most commonly derived from, problems in the individual’s life.
- Helps members and families address the problems in their life that are promoters and products of substance use.
- Provides substance-use services that are trauma-informed and trauma-specific.
All youth ages 12 to 17 years who are enrolled in behavioral health services and their families are eligible for the Summit Outpatient Program.
