Program Overview

Up to 75 percent of youth with substance abuse problems also struggle with psychiatric illness. Our mission at McLean is to address not only the substance abuse issues, but also the mental health issues of teens and young adults. Treating both issues simultaneously is useful because they can exacerbate one another. It is difficult to achieve full recovery from one without also treating the other, therefore, McLean offers comprehensive residential treatment for adolescents and young adults through age 19 who are struggling with co-occurring substance use disorder and psychiatric illness such as ADHD, anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder.
