Adolescent Recovery Support Clubhouse

Serving youth from Floyd, Gordon and Polk counties
 The Recovery Support Clubhouse provides a fun and safe environment for youth ages 13 to 18 to hang out, socialize and learn – without pressure or the temptations of substance use. Youth participate in social outings, educational and employment supports, group therapy and other activities that help them build pro-social behavior and life skills.

Weekly Saturday outings let participants have fun, learn and enjoy positive social interactions. Outings may include trips to amusement parks (Six Flags, White Water), sporting events, museums, paint ball, zip lining, arcades, movies and more. All activities include transportation and are provided by the Clubhouse at no cost to families.

The Clubhouse provides comprehensive services to engage youth as well as their families in their recovery. The Clubhouse Family Advocate works with families in their home or the Clubhouse to promote wellness and increase parental involvement in the program. Parents and families are encouraged to join the learning and fun during monthly parent and family events.
