Alcohol & Other Drug Treatment for Adolescents and Young Adults

Programs and Services

The RISE Program is designed for youth and young adults ages 12-25 that are struggling with substance use or co-occurring substance use and mental health concerns. RISE offices are located in Central and Upper Bucks County to create a haven of hope for youth and their families through prevention, education, and therapeutic supports during the most important stage of development. We believe every young person has the potential for a bright and promising future. An emphasis on strengths with support to set and achieve goals increases opportunities to develop and transition into adulthood in a positive and healthy manner. 

RISE utilizes an evidence-based modality of treatment, the Matrix Model for Teens and Young Adults. The foundation of this model is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which focuses on challenging and unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulations and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current challenges. Family involvement is a key element of this process. The core concept of this program is to create a safe space where these challenges are addressed in both individual and group settings. It is important to acknowledge milestones of progress achieved in treatment to foster continued success.
