In ASAC’s substance abuse treatment programming, we provide our patients with the tools for them to make positive changes in their lives and live a life without abusing substances. A teen in ASAC’s CD+ program recently wrote the following in response to the question: “How has CD+ helped you make changes to be successful when you return home?”
CD+ has helped me develop new skills such as handling my anger better and learning new positive ways to deal with situations. CD+ also gave me suggestions on how to regain my parents’ trust again. I have learned to have positive friends, to stay sober and also to deal with stress and boredom in a positive way.
