Treatment Programs

417 offers comprehensive, clinically-based treatment for adolescents and their families who are struggling with substance abuse, co-occurring disorders, as well as mental health issues. Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) allows adolescents to live at home and continue with school, work or other activities while receiving treatment. Our clients generally attend the program three to five days per week, based on medical necessity. We offer true individualized care, ensuring that all of our clients have a treatment plan tailored to specifically meet their unique needs.

Substance Abuse

Unfortunately drugs and alcohol is an important part of adolescent social interactions. With the onset of peer pressure, social environments, and other challenges facing today’s teenagers, drugs and alcohol have become one of the driving results that plague America’s youth. Studies show early intervention is crucial in preventing future long term addiction. 417 Recovery is a 12 step based program designed to help adolescents achieve sobriety and life a healthy lifestyle.

Co-Occuring Disorders

Co-occurring Disorders (Dual Diagnosis) refers to a drug and/or alcohol problem coupled with a mental health disorder. 417 is designed to help the adolescent address both conditions while in treatment. 417 Recovery staff includes Dr. Alejandro Alva, Psychiatrist MD, who meets with each client regularly ti ensure their stability. Dr. Alva specializes in co-occurring disorders including but not limited to: generalized anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, ADD/ADHD, and bipolar disorder.

Mental Health

It’s important to be aware of warning signs your child may be struggling. You can play a critical role in knowing when your child may need help. Although mood swings are common during adolescents, approximately one in five adolescents has a diagnosable mental health disorder. We offer individualized care to teens who struggle with anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, suicidal thoughts, anger, self-harming behavior, ADD/ADHD, and bipolar disorder.

“417 Recovery has given us our son back.”

“This is not an exaggeration. We came to 417 after sending our son to an inpatient program after spending 6 months at another teen outpatient program, neither of which ever got to the core of our sons issues. The team at 417, lead by Scott, not only took the time to know our son, and our family, but to understand him and the problems we were facing.” – Anonymous Parent from Orange County Location

Our son had started smoking pot, then moved on to abusing Xanax. The transformation he went through during this year and a half long period rendered him almost unrecognizable from the kind, funny, gentle boy we had always known. He faced not only addiction, but serious legal issues as well. The recovery program he was in had given up on him, yet they were happy to keep him there. This was unacceptable to us. The 417 team tailored a program that would work for him. Dr. Alva diagnosed our son with OCD, a serious condition that had plagued him since at least age 5 but which he had successfully hidden from everyone out of shame and embarrassment. The relief of finally letting this out, and of having such tremendous support from his doctor and counselors at 417, freed something in our son and allowed him to begin his true journey to recovery.
Irvine Father
At 417 the counselors, individual, family and group, and the doctor’s and experts, do not just give you lip-service and follow a pre-planned program, they work together and work with your child and your family to ensure that your child is getting the help they need. Our children are not all the same, even if their diagnosis seems to be on the surface, Scott and his team recognize these teens are individuals and treat each child as such. This is not a cookie-cutter program, this is something special run by people who really care.
