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.
