Our adolescent mentoring program provides support for teenagers when they need it most. Balancing academics, extracurricular activities, and the social dynamics of simply being a teen can be hard to manage all at once. Our program is designed to help young adults cope with these changes in a healthy and productive way. At a juncture when peer pressure and the temptations to engage in unhealthy living exert such a powerful influence, avoiding drugs and alcohol in high school can prove to be a real challenge.
Transcend has offered adolescent mentoring services since late 2012. Our mentors are highly skilled men and women who have extensive training and experience in the recovery field. Our adolescent mentors work closely with a supervisor, treatment teams, and families. Ongoing training and educational workshops for our mentors are an integral component of our program. We pride ourselves on effective communication and individualized approaches to wellness with each client.
Transcend’s adolescent mentoring program embodies a three-pronged approach designed to equip at-risk students with the skills they need to thrive in their recovery program.
- Exposure to Resources: Mentors will connect clients to critical avenues of support, ranging from self-help groups to experiential outings.
- Family Action Plan: Mentors will help create a Family Action Plan that delineates the guidelines under which a mentoring program will exist.
- Recovery Accountability: Mentors will monitor a client’s recovery through urinalysis & alcohol testing.
Evidence suggests that ongoing support is the most critical component marking an individual’s success in recovery and a healthier lifestyle overall. While our adolescent mentoring program is incredibly individualized and is tailored to meet the unique needs of each client, we offer two different tracks of adolescent mentoring services.
