Adolescent Services assist with youth from the ages of 14 through their 18th birthday or the end of 12th grade. HMDS relies upon the Recovery Model as we work with adolescents and their families. The recovery model is based on the concepts of strengths and empowerment of the people we serve. We believe that when individuals with mental illness and/or addiction have greater control and choice in their treatment, they will be able to take increased control and initiative in their lives.
