Community Service Foundation was founded in 1977 as a nonprofit organization with the mission to educate and provide counseling and substance abuse treatment services to adolescents and their families. With over five locations across the state of Pennsylvania, clients have access to a network and community of professional resources. CSF offers an outpatient program that implements group sessions and skill building.
Treatment and Staff
The outpatient program at CSF is a community-based track intended to help build social skills and provide a safe environment for adolescents to seek help, counseling and treatment. The program is 20-weeks long with an intensive aftercare program as well. The program consists of group therapy with a focus on skill-building including communication, empathy and positive social interaction groups.
Additionally, activities are scheduled that help clients work through specific issues like substance abuse, anger management and poor social skills. Education is also heavily incorporated into the program to help young people develop strategies to perform better in school. Clients are also scheduled for individual counseling to focus on their individual needs and to develop treatment goals for the duration of the program. The 12 steps are not integrated into treatment.
In addition to their comprehensive outpatient treatment program, CSF also offers a variety of support services and programs to clients. Options include a school program that offers junior high and high school students counseling services, a foster care program, an in-home supervision program, a restorative services program and family counseling.
CSF is a good choice for those seeking an adolescent program with a focus on education and building skills beyond the treatment of substance abuse. Through group sessions, clients see learn that they are not alone, form bonds and are better able to tackle their recovery.
