The Northern Plains Children’s Advocacy Center views substance use disorders as a chronic, progressive, and treatable illness, which drastically impacts the life of the individual, their family, and the community at large. We use multiple interventions throughout the continuum of care. Your treatment needs are individualized and addressed at the time of assessment and diagnoses, as well as throughout the treatment process.

We use evidence-based and developmentally appropriate modalities which assist you in your current stage of change. The program can assist you and your family/caregiver in understanding problems that substance use can create, methods to change behaviors, and ways to begin progressing towards identified goals to improve overall quality of life. We believe family/caregiver involvement is crucial to the treatment process and we actively work to include these supports in treatment when approved by the client and when deemed appropriate.

We are licensed to offer treatment at the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Levels 2.1 – Intensive Outpatient Treatment and 1.0 – Outpatient Services for both adolescents and adults. We offer treatment services to adolescents and their families/caregivers.

Admission Criteria (determined in initial assessment):

  • Meet diagnostic criteria for substance-induced disorders of DSM.
  • Meet criteria in the ASAM dimensions required for the recommended level of care.

We provide services to families regardless of their ability to pay.  Families will not receive a bill or be charged for services received.

No child is ever turned away.  Our Intake Specialist will work with you and/or your child to determine the best approach for services within the Northern Plains Children’s Advocacy Center.
