Children's Program Resources
Nurture addiction free futures.
Addiction within a family environment can cause specific and complex challenges for children. In the Ashley Children and Youth Program for children ages 6-14, we work with each child’s unique needs in an age appropriate manner. We also teach parents to help their children avoid long-term problems such as academic issues, delinquency and substance use. Addressing these issues from a young age helps your child reach their full potential.
The Children and Youth Program is open to the public on the second Saturday of each month from 9 am to 3 pm. For more information or to register, please call 410-273-2227 or familywellness@AshleyTreatment.org.
Registration is required.
