The Program
"In Its Own Words"

"Anasazi is an outdoor behavioral healthcare agency serving youth 12-17 years old with substance abuse and emotional and behavioral concerns."

Treatment Philosophy:

"Anasazi is an opportunity for young people to be in an environment free from restriction with caring staff who are clinically supervised and prepared to help."

Approach To Dual Diagnosis:

"Each child is assigned a therapist who works closely with the parents and child on individual issues and concerns."

Family Program:

"Parents bring their child and participate in a two day workshop; communicate with therapist weekly; and come at the end of the program and spend the last three days and two nights inpatient with child before returning home."

Position On 12 Step Involvement:

"Anasazi uses a modified 12 Step program."
