Youth Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Treatment

Champions’ Youth Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Treatment programs provide treatment and recovery support services for youth and adolescents experiencing substance use disorders. Champions programs are designed to help youth and adolescents maintain a positive and productive drug-free lifestyle that promotes meaningful and beneficial relationships and connections to family, peers, and the community both during treatment and after treatment ends.


Champions program serves adolescents aged 12-20 who are experiencing both substance use and mental health disorders. Though the program accepts walk-in participants, most are referred directly from the Department of Probation, Tulare County. 

The DRC and FDRC serve to provide structure and skills to individuals struggling with a variety of social and criminal justice issues. Mental health and substance abuse co-occurring issues are addressed through individualized treatment by licensed and certified professionals. Participants will receive services that will empower them to:

Program components

  • Assessment (substance use, mental health, and risk)

  • Individualized Treatment & Discharge planning

  • Intensive Case Management

  • Drug Screening / Testing

  • Community Supervision

  • Psychological Assessment

Services Provided
