Bar None Omegon Pathways
Support on the journey to health and recovery
Bar None Pathways specializes in providing residential Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and mental health treatment services to adolescent males ages 12-17. Programming utilizes SMART Recovery and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and offers trauma-responsive care through an integrative systems-based model.
Youth accepted to the Pathways program may present with serious mental health and substance use issues and have a history of unsuccessful treatment attempts in the community and/or other residential programs. The primary goal for youth in Pathways is to identify and overcome barriers to sobriety, work closely with family to build a supportive recovery environment, and learn to effectively manage their mental health.
Specialized Treatment for the Whole Person
Involving the Family
Helping adolescents find a path forward to mental and chemical health
Everyone needs help sometimes and seeking help is a sign of resiliency and strength. Families often come to Pathways for their teenaged loved one after expensive outpatient therapy, and sometimes hospitalization after chemical use crises, suicide attempts and self-harming behaviors.
Bar None staff are experts at building well-being and offer one of the few places in the region capable of helping residents find their path through both chemical health and mental health issues.
Pathways is a longer-term treatment program designed to meet the needs of the resident. When possible, families play a large role in the treatment model are are supported in their contributions to help their loved one recover. Care and consultation after leaving Pathways is also an important offering for many residents and families.
Every person is unique, which is why we never use a one-size-fits-all approach. At Pathways we work with each person to determine what services are needed, create pathways to access needed services, and coordinate with all the individual supports to ensure the services work effectively together.
