A Partial Day Program for Adolescent Dual Diagnosis

The Medical Center of Aurora’s Summit Program offers a comprehensive outpatient treatment for adolescents ages 11-17 who have acute behavioral health symptoms and co-occurring substance use disorders.

The Summit Program is designed to provide dual diagnosis treatment in a safe and supportive environment where adolescents can cultivate the skills necessary to address both their mental wellness and addictive behaviors.
