OUR VISION:
Reclaimed Hope, Realized Potential, Restored Lives

Results:
In order to reach even more youth in need of outpatient recovery services, we’ve expanded our Step Up! program into local high schools!

Advent’s new Step Up! In the Schools program makes it possible for local public and community high school students to receive substance abuse and mental health treatment during or after school.

At Advent, we want to do whatever it takes to reach out to youth right where they are. Having counselors on campus helps address the practical and emotional hurdles that create barriers to kids getting the help they need to overcome their problems and succeed in school.

"Before when I was using, I really wasn’t aware of the damage I had done to myself and others. So by looking back at it now, I know that drugs really weren’t for me. Advent encouraged me to get a sponsor, go through the 12-steps and helped me keep clean…so I’d like to thank you for what you have done and for letting me have the chance to be at Advent. I have also been sober for six months." -Step Up! In the Schools client

There I met more awesome people and was able to hang out and try to be ... more »

While working in resource development at Advent from 2000 to 2006, I knew that wasn't going to be enough and I wanted to get involved with the kids. So over the years my husband, Norm, and I have invited the teens to our home at Lake of the Pines in Auburn, California, where they've enjoyed swimming... more »
