Office of Youth and Young Adult Services
The Office of Youth and Young Adult Services staff designs, implements, and oversees the programs, policies and initiatives that are created by the Bureau to address substance abuse issues among youth and young adults. The purpose of this office is to build and maintain system capacity across the continuum of care. The directive of the office is to provide effective, accessible, and affordable substance abuse treatment for youth and their families. The OYYAS staff believes services should be developed which utilize evidenced based practices, are youth-focused and inclusive of family and caregiver involvement, and involve multi-service coordination with other state agencies and youth service providers. In addition to community-based outpatient assessment and counseling, the Bureau offers comprehensive residential treatment services that focus on substance use disorders.
