Youth Treatment Programs & Services
Residents of the City of Alexandria who are under the age of eighteen

  • Youth who exhibit emotional, behavioral or substance abuse difficulties
  • Family willing to be involved in the treatment, if the family is the service seeker
  • Priority population includes youth who have a serious emotional disturbance or who are at risk for developing a serious emotional disturbance


Referral, Screening & Admission Procedures: Referrals for services at the main clinic are processed through the Youth and Family Outpatient Team’s specialized youth intake process. Intakes are performed by Team staff. Intake staff orient the youth and his/her family to services and assess their preferences and needs. Releases of information are obtained at this time. Intake staff coordinate services with referral sources from the time of the first appointment. The Team Leader reviews intakes and assigns them to staff based on consumer preference and staff availability. Staff whose primary assignment is in a host setting receive referrals directly from the setting. Staff work with their host agency to prioritize cases and work closely with the referral source to coordinate services.
