$100,000 for the Y.E.S. House Substance Abuse Mental Health Residential and Outpatient Treatment Programs

 

The Y.E.S. House has been awarded a grant of $100,000 from the Daniels Fund.

This grant allows the Y.E.S. House to continue to offer substance abuse and mental health treatment services to 130 children and teens. The Y.E.S. House treatment structure incorporates education, treatment and positive recreation.

Youth in residential treatment start their day at 6:00am with a physical fitness, then breakfast and school attendance from 8am to 3pm during the school year, and from 8am to 1pm in the summer. The substance abuse groups are provided every day, 6 days a week, from 3:30 to 5:30pm. From 5:30pm to 6:30pm there is individual, family or recreational therapy. Then dinner, and based on the day of the week the youth either participate in social skills groups, spirituality groups, Independent Living sessions (on obtaining employment, pursuing technical or post-secondary education, setting goals, finding enjoyment in life without the use of drugs and alcohol, dealing with adversity, conflict resolution, self-respect, and values), Character Counts or Family Nurturing classes until 8:00pm. Once a week youth participate in taking dance sessions, as well as, taking pottery, watercolor and tie dye classes at AVA. They also meet with their mentors and volunteer their time in the community or work on life skills.

Outpatient services include Day Treatment programming Monday-Friday from 3pm to 7pm during the school year and from 12pm to 4pm during the summer with a daily substance abuse and/or mental health groups, life skills sessions; and individual/family therapy every other week. The Y.E.S. House also offers outpatient therapy to families that may need less intense services.

Quote from the Executive Director of the Y.E.S. House: “Daniels Funds has been an incredible supporter of the Y.E.S. House services. During difficult economic times for Campbell County and social services, the Daniels Fund came through and committed to help the Y.E.S. House to sustain treatment services for vulnerable children and teens.  Due to the Daniels Fund generosity one-hundred and thirty (130) young people will receive the treatment services that are essential to their well-being and healthy living.”

The Daniels Fund operates the Daniels Scholarship Program and the Daniels Grants Program in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. The Fund was established in 1997 by Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television known for his kindness and generosity to those in need.
