Third Way Center’s Specialized Programs are additional ways that we provide support and opportunity to youth throughout our organization.
Substance Abuse Treatment
Some youth struggle with drug , alcohol, and other substance addiction. We have a full-time Master’s Level Drug and Alcohol Treatment Coordinator working with these youth on an ongoing basis.
The Voc-Ed team performs job skill assessments, teaches resume writing and interview skill development for youth. This program helps them retain employment or seeks volunteer opportunities to help build new skills.
Independent Living Skills Training
Due to unstable family situations or growing up in in highly institutionalized environments many youth entering Third Way Center do not have the skills necessary to live on their own. With the help of therapists and mental health counselors, youth learn to prepare grocery lists, properly store food, cook, clean do laundry and perform all tasks necessary to live independently.
