Treatment Resources for Youth, Inc. (TRY) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1973 to help youth and their families in the Baltimore area who are at risk for drug use, crime, violence and academic failure. Serving youth between the ages of 11 and 20, TRY is committed to providing multi-cultural, evidence-based education with standard outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) tracks, general counseling and social support services for those who struggle with substance abuse. With strong ties to the community, TRY seeks to help youth and their families prevent, address and overcome problems that affect individual youth, their families and the community as a whole.
Treatment and Staff
As a community-based counseling program, TRY helps youth in the Baltimore area who are having difficulty at home, in school or in the community by providing early intervention and outpatient treatment for substance abuse. Services include assessments and referrals, formal and informal counseling, crisis intervention, suicide prevention, group and individual and family therapy. Detox and dual diagnosis support are not offered.
Family involvement is strongly encouraged in each youth’s treatment. Clients are typically referred through the Dept. of Juvenile Justice, Social Services, Juvenile Court Early Intervention Services, mental health agencies or family members, though they can also refer themselves. Programs last a minimum of 90 days.
Cultural competence is an important goal for TRY, meaning they try to always understand, appreciate and respectfully interact with clients from differing cultures and brief systems. Because of this, they’re qualified to provide individualized treatment plans that truly cater to the person.
TRY has a staff of 11 therapists and counselors, consisting of LCSWs, AADS, CAC-ADs, ADAS and CSC-Ads—all of whom have diverse backgrounds and experiences. Up to 100 clients are treated at a time.
Special programs include anger management, a drug-dealers group, relapse prevention, victim awareness, a program called VOICES (for females only) and after school programs. While TRY usually treats only youth between the ages of 11 and 17, services are also available for emerging adults between the ages of 18 and 24. Special bullying programs are also offered on occasion.
TRY is a community based, evidence-based treatment program for youth in the Baltimore area that treats substance abuse through client-based programs meant to educate and empower the individual with an ultimate goal of helping youth make better decisions, recover from substance abuse and sustain sober lives. Private insurance is accepted but a sliding scale is available for those who don’t have insurance.
