Substance Use Treatment in Topeka

Substance Use Treatment

Comprehensive support for your child

Some youth experiment with alcohol, vaping and drugs to escape the pressures of growing up. Some use drugs, vape and alcohol regularly, and it takes them down a dangerous path. Family Services and Guidance Center’s Substance Use Treatment Program can assess youth ages 5-17 for substance use disorders, and provide treatment that focuses on the whole person.
