The Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre (AARC) is a long-term treatment program for adolescents suffering from substance dependency. The AARC program is often the last resort for addicted youth (ages 13-21) and their families who have exhausted numerous social agencies and treatment programs, with little to no success.
AARC offers comprehensive assessment, treatment, and aftercare programs. It is built on four primary therapeutic modalities:
- Twelve Step facilitation including Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), and Al-Anon (for families and friends of alcoholic/addicts)
- Positive peer influence
- Group, family, and individual therapy
- Rehabilitation of functional family relationships
