The Connections4Life! Relapse Prevention Program is designed to help youth who are currently in, or have recently completed, substance abuse treatment become better connected to their families, peers, community and resources to help them remain sober, avoid relapse and introduce them to a sustainable drug-free lifestyle.
Youth are referred to the Connections4Life! program by parents, counselors, schools, community programs and by the Dallas Challenge outpatient treatment program. Upon referral, an assessment determines the exact level of care needed and staff act as a guide for the youth throughout the program and upon completion.
Housed at the Dallas Challenge North Oak Cliff Treatment Facility, the Connections4Life! program targets youth age 10-17 beginning in the Maintenance and Relapse Prevention stage of their treatment process, when youth are sober and ready to transition into a new lifestyle, and will continue for nine (9) weeks total, for an hour and a half each session. Parents are also engaged in the program to learn how to positively support their child's recovery.
The Connections4Life! program includes five essential areas to connect youth with the support they need including:
Participants and their parents are encouraged to contact staff members at any time during or after the program should questions or other concerns arise. Follow-up phone calls will be made at one, three, six and twelve month intervals throughout the year following the completion of the nine-week program to encourage the participants to continue their recovery program and serve as a resource for parents or other family members.
