SEAR Program

Support the program

El Pueblo’s Intensive Short Term Substance Abuse Treatment addresses behavior problems regarded as symptoms of underlying distress or trauma and/or significant substance abuse issues. The Intensive Short Term Substance Abuse Treatment Program is designed to treat young adolescents who have a DSM-5 diagnosis and a history of trauma, who are acting out their distress with defiant or self-destructive behaviors which include substance abuse issues. Treatment focuses on marijuana, methamphetamine and heroin abuse.
The purpose of Intensive Short Term Substance Abuse Treatment is to appropriately treat each adolescent’s addictive behavior. El Pueblo works with dually diagnosed adolescents and with those who have experienced severe trauma. Substance Education and Addiction Recovery (SEAR) treatment is wide-ranging and includes relapse prevention.

    I am a Student with University of the Rockies working on my MA in nonprofit management, and I have to write a paper about a local substance abuse program. I was interested in writing about your program and was wondering if you would be willing to send me some more statistical information about your program. For example, in the last year approximately how many youth have you treated for substance addictions, has that increased since the legalization of marijuana, what is the recitivization of those who use, and what is the probability of co-morbidity?

    I would appreciate your help in this matter, because I would love to represent your organization in a transparent manner. The website only provides me with a very limited scope of your services and I would rather present the program in the manner it should be.

    Thank you kindly
