Other Youth Programs
Underlying the AYI services to youth, are the provisions of individualized, wrap-around services to youth and their families in the most normative and least-restrictive environment possible. Services for the youth are built around the needs of the youth and family, providing an unconditional care approach to service delivery. This means that youth are not rejected from the AYI services due to their severity or level of need.
Each youth is supported through a treatment team that has at its center, the youth and family. Additional members to the treatment team may include a Mental Health Clinician, school staff, a State representative, and others identified by the family and youth as supports. AYI is committed to developing needed resources for youth if unavailable within the community setting as defined within the youth's Individualized Family Services Plan.

The ADAPT program is a chemical dependency treatment program consisting of pretreatment, treatment, after care, and life skill components. Basic components of each phase may include diagnosis and/or assessment, individual, family and group counseling, care coordination, rehabilitation treatment services, urinalysis testing and detoxification, if necessary. Rehabilitation treatment services are those services needed to improve the recipient's functioning level through supporting or strengthening behavioral, emotional or intellectual skills necessary to live, learn, or work in the recipient's environment.
Student assistance is a fundamental non-treatment substance abuse service offered at the middle school and high school levels. In addition to being the entry point for ADAPT, these certified counselors provide drug abuse screenings for any student in need, conduct classroom education as requested, serve as a point of general drug and alcohol information, and are the designated entity to which all students violating the School District's Chemical Policy are referred.
