Youth Programs

Programs to keep adolescents and young adults on the right path

Why Keystone's Youth Program

The pre-teen, teen and young adult years are a notoriously difficult time in human development. Young people are learning life skills, becoming more self-sufficient, navigating relationships, and planning for their future education and careers—all while going through profound physical, mental, and emotional changes. Stressed, confused, or overwhelmed, some young people turn to substances to ease the pressure they feel or fit in with their peers.

We want to give young people a different choice

Our Youth Programs offer adolescents and young adults a better way to manage stress and engage with their peers.

All of Keystone’s programs are holistic, focusing not only on treating substance use but also on building positive relationships, managing stress and anger, developing coping methods, and learning good communication skills.


Adolescent & Teen Programs At Keystone

Keystone recognizes the importance of helping teens and young adults early when their lives have been impacted by substance use, offering the best chance to find success in their adult lives.

Adolescent Assessments

With all Keystone programs, patients start with a bio-psycho-social assessment to determine individual needs and help us place the patient in the most effective program. We offer walk-in assessments Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:00 A.M. – 2:00 P.M. and Thursday and Friday from 8:00 A.M. – 10:00 A.M. at our 199 S. Herlong Ave location.

Keystone’s Youth Center

Following a $1.5 million investment, Keystone opened a unique facility in November of 2016 in Rock Hill to house its programs for adolescents and young adults.

Keystone’s Youth Center is designed to invite our youngest patients to feel welcome and at home; and for parents to know their sons and daughters are getting the best care available in a safe environment.
