Independent Living Plus
Many adolescents have nowhere to go. They have no one who wonders where they are or how they are doing. They have no one to help them through the everyday challenges of adolescents.
Independent Living Plus (ILP) is a short-term intervention designed to meet a youth’s specific independent living needs and goals. ILP provides staff supported housing/host homes and services for youth ages 16 through 19 who have been identified by individual needs and assessment to not currently being appropriate for general Independent Living.
Substance Abuse and Co-occurring Mental Health Disorder
A comprehensive assessment is completed at the time of admission. All assessments are performed by clinicians who have at least a Master’s Degree and are credentialed through MCBAP.

This includes residential facilities for men and women plus adult male recovery housing. All women’s specialty services accommodate women with non-school aged children.
