Substance Use Recovery Program


Empowering Change

We are committed to a holistic approach with a focus on empowerment: everything a student experiences while in the Teaching Recovery, Empowering Change (TREC) program at White’s, from clinical services to our therapeutic residential life model, is designed to impart ownership of treatment, recovery and the healing process. Our two primary program goals are sobriety and relapse prevention.

Therapeutic Services


Youth work on treatment goals until completion of 26 weeks of progressive treatment. These goals work in synergy with other key goals including academic success, work experience, independent living skills development, relationship rebuilding and spiritual life exploration. The TREC program allows each youth to understand his or her own unique path to recovery while empowering them to make changes toward living a life that is healthy and improves quality of life.
