Self Description:

“The Landing is a four to six week dual diagnosis residential treatment program combining intensive and transitional programming for adolescents and young adults through age 19 who are struggling with co-occurring substance use disorder and psychiatric illness.”

Treatment Philosophy:

“We specialize in treating adolescents through groups, educational experiences and group therapy that focus on strengthing important relationships, fostering coping skills and impulse control, and creating and implementing relapse prevention plans.”

Approach To Dual Diagnosis:

“The Landing is one of the premiere adolescent only dual diagnosis programs in the United States.”

Family Program:

“Parents are involved in treatment at each step including the initial evaluation, subsequent family meetings, weekly parent support and skills groups, and discharge planning with the clinical team.”

Position On 12 Step Involvement:

“During the transitional phase of care, adolescents go out into the community to attend 12 Step meetings.”

Position On Confrontation:

“Many adolescents do not enter treatment willingly, but we use a motivational approach to work through ambivalence about change.”

Additional Characteristics:

“We use multiple modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing (MI), 12 Step facilitation methods and contingency management.”
