In this video, Ulmer discuss the addiction treatment programs that Summit offers to teens and young adults.
For teens who are between the ages of 14 and 18, Summit extends its outpatient programming, including the intensive outpatient program. Teens and parents or caregivers participate in the program by attending one to four or five times per week, depending on the level of care that is appropriate for the individual client.
Ulmer explained that Summit also offers the outpatient programming to young adults, ages 18 to 25, as this population group is often quite different from both the younger teenager group and the older adults. Finding the middle ground and placing those in the young adult age group together, further demonstrates Summit’s intention of creating a personalized experience for their clients.
Summit also offers their full spectrum of addiction treatment – medical detoxification, outpatient, and inpatient programs – to individuals who are over the age of 18.
No matter the age of the client, Summit meets their clients where they are. In the video, Ulmer explains, “We look at it as identifying an individualized approach where someone is coming in expressing their need. We work with them to identify what their treatment plan goals would be truly from where they are and where they hope to be.”
Summit utilizes a personalized approach to treatment in all of their programs, knowing that each client is unique, to empathetically walk alongside of them through the challenging first days of sobriety through after-care and to long-lasting recovery.
