ABOUT COVENANT HOUSE FLORIDA - SUBSTANCE ABUSE INTERVENTION
Covenant House is a Florida-based nonprofit agency dedicated to serving runaway, homeless, and at-risk youth (including teen mothers and their babies). Originally established in 1987 as a “response to a lack of available treatment programs to youth, the nonprofit today provides substance abuse intervention under CHAMP (Covenant House Addiction Management Project) a nationally recognized, six-week residential substance abuse treatment program for youth.
Covenant House is also just one 135 (20.2 percent) facilities in the state dedicated exclusively to working with teens.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The assessment process is quite extensive at CHAMP. Upon entry into the six-week program, youth undergo a series of psycho-social, chemical dependency, and medical evaluations and exams, all while developing a personalized plan of care with their assigned case manager.
Programming consists of daily participation in A.A. and N.A. meetings, individual, group, and family therapy (where appropriate), relapse prevention training, and groups designed to help youth develop healthy and appropriate skills for anger management, conflict resolution, and self-esteem. Youth also benefit from supervised, sober recreation and are subject to random drug screenings throughout their stay.
Program participants also have opportunity to apply for a two-phase transitional housing program following successful completion of treatment.
Each youth is assigned a trained case manager throughout their CHAMP stay.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
There is currently no information provided by Covenant House regarding the living arrangements and related offerings of its six-week residential program, however, a staff member surveyed by Rehabs.com claimed that the facility is run from inside an “old” building that’s located on a “noisy and busy street.”
