Muir Wood Adolescent & Family Services provides residential treatment for adolescent boys with substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health issues and outpatient programming for both adolescent boys and girls. The residential treatment program is designed specifically for males ages 12-17 struggling with substance abuse and accompanying mental health issues. Located on six idyllic acres in Sonoma County, CA, this highly individualized and family-centric program serves a maximum of six adolescents and their families at any given time. Muir Wood’s treatment team includes board-certified addiction treatment physicians, board-certified psychiatrists, licensed therapists, certified counselors, masters-level adventure therapists and masters-level and multiple-subject State credentialed teachers. Key program components of the residential program include a weekly family intensive, comprehensive psychological testing, twice weekly individual therapy with a licensed therapist, weekly assessment by a board-certified addiction psychiatrist, twice weekly individual family therapy with a licensed therapist, and an all day adventure therapy program with masters-level therapists. The residential program also includes a 3-month Parent Support and Coaching Aftercare curriculum-based component led by a licensed therapist who remains in contact with parents for a weekly 75-minute phone call. Muir Wood’s mixed-gender outpatient program, located in Marin, offers both a 9-hour per week Intensive Outpatient Program and a 6-hour per week Outpatient Program for teens and their families.
