Youth and Family TREE is short for: Enhancement and Expansion of Treatment and Recovery Services for Adolescents, Transitional Aged Youth, and their Families.
The Red Cliff Youth and Family TREE project is a SAMSHA 5-year grant that is concentrated on serving adolescents, transitional aged youth, and their families/guardians who struggle with substance abuse. As a result, the project’s population of focus is centered on providing services to those within the 12-25 age range. Through use of evidence-based practices including screening tools and motivational therapy, the project utilizes data collected from the practices to deliver supportive services for intervention, treatment, and recovery. Behavioral Health services can be provided as well when the individual has any co-occurring mental health disorders.
To deliver these substance abuse services, the project is housed at the Red Cliff Community Health Center and strives to integrate already existing services within the primary care setting. That way, when a patient is found to be in need of or may benefit from receiving services for substance abuse, that care can be immediately provided to that patient as the project is in that same setting and then a warm hand off can be performed to ensure the patient is able to then receive brief intervention or treatment services.
