Residential inpatient treatment is a vital component of recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. But treatment doesn’t end there.

Intensive outpatient programs help guard against relapse and solidify your teenager’s commitment to sobriety by maintaining the same structure as he or she reassimilates into everyday life.
With few teen substance abuse treatment centers available in the U.S. and even fewer offering continued care, Safe Landing is deeply committed to providing extended recovery support for adolescents.

The IOP program at Safe Landing also includes educational support, such as SAT/ACT prep, GED courses and assistance with higher education.
