Welcome to Alternative Youth Care (AYC). Located in Northwestern Montana, we have been helping young men for over a decade to recapture their lives using a 12-Step AA Hazelden-based treatment philosophy. We are a long-term, transitional living, half-way house specializing in helping young men to develop a desire to pursue life without drugs or alcohol. Our Treatment Program is intended to pick up where inpatient treatment concluded. Our aspiration is long-term abstinence and a lifestyle of sobriety. We believe that the learning of genuine life and social skills, within a structured residential facility, is the answer for sobriety.
Residents complete the traditional 12-Step process that was begun in inpatient treatment. The 12-Step process is coupled with group and individual therapy, as well as a focus on social and family reunification. Experienced, caring, and certified (Licensed Addiction Counselors) staff assist the young men in their journey towards the life they were intended for
It's been almost two weeks now since we've had "OUR" boy home. He is a different person. All the wonderful things we caught glimpses of and loved about him are still there...his irreverent sense of humor, his sparkle, his kind heart, his gratitude. You all somehow managed to take the hard edges away, keep the soft ones, and make him understand that he was lovable all along. He is clear headed and happy. You brought things out of him that we couldn't. You took an unhappy, hopeless boy and sent home a happy, confident young man.
All major cards accepted, please call for details.
