Morning Star Youth Academy
Morning Star is a 40-bed residential program located on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Morning Star offers drug and alcohol treatment for youth aged 14 to 18. Morning Star uses the Seven Challenges Program, which is an evidence-based treatment model that offers an alternative to traditional approaches for adolescents with drug problems. Morning Star has a community partnership that allows youth to work on community service projects.
Functional Family Therapy
FFT* (www.fftinc.com) is an in-home therapeutic service that helps family members to strengthen their ability to work together and successfully solve problems of concern to the family. It is a front-end program that works to divert at-risk youth away from residential treatment entirely.
VisionQuest offers FFT services statewide in Baltimore City, the Eastern Shore, and the Metro Region.
