Youth and Family Tree
For teens and young adults, finding the path to a healthy, happy life can be challenging, even amid the most optimal circumstances. For young people with struggling substance use or other life challenges—particularly as they are transitioning to adulthood—finding that path can prove to be even more difficult. Wheeler’s Youth and Family TREE program can help by supporting teens and young adults, ages 16 to 25, and their families, as well as community providers who care for them. Our goal is to assist teens and young adults in getting connected to treatment and linking them with needed resources in order to stay connected to treatment.
