Choices Substance Abuse Treatment Clinic

Elmcrest partners with Central New York Services Inc. to provide substance abuse treatment to adolescents and young adults who reside on the Elmcrest campus or in the local community. This program implements The Seven Challenges, which is an evidence-based treatment model developed for teenagers and young adults. The Choices Clinic is OASAS certified.

Rather than "forcing" abstinence as in adult programs, The Seven Challenges teaches youth to make “thoughtful decisions” not just about drugs and alcohol, but about their lives. See
