Adolescent Extended Care

The Adolescent Extended Care community resides at the main campus on River Road. Adolescents continue to build your 12-Step knowledge and recovery skills

Adolescent Extended Care

Getting into recovery as a teen is a wonderful and challenging thing. The brain of a teenager is particularly vulnerable to alcohol and drugs, still developing and without the total myelin sheath which will eventually protect it all. The normal course of how a teen develops means they don’t naturally think in abstract terms or about long term consequences. This means recovery takes more time for a teenager. That’s where the Adolescent Extended Care Community is beneficial.

The Adolescent Extended Care Community resides at the main campus on River Road. You and your family will continue to build your 12-Step knowledge and recovery skills gained during primary care treatment. Our trained staff works with you or your loved one to establish basic patterns of daily living including the necessary actions to protect and continue recovery. You will learn from experience about trusting others, acting and speaking on your own behalf allowing others to hear and respond. Most importantly, you learn freedom and accountability go together and create independence.

So what about school? We know that’s key for teens and we aim to set up for success. River Road Academy is our fully licensed high school, staffed by a qualified special education teacher, with a passion for helping teens in recovery. Here we’ll help you or your loved one reconnect with a passion for learning. We also work with GED preparation as well.

A major focus on exploring and having fun, gives the Adolescent Extended Care Community an opportunity to have alcohol and drug free experiences. Outings can range from movies to canoeing to horseback riding, in addition to our on-site gymnasium, ropes course and climbing wall. You will challenge yourself and laugh like you haven’t in a long time.

Service work is also an important component of our program, giving you and your loved ones the opportunity to re-join the larger community and build self-esteem through giving back. We learn there’s a larger world out there — bigger than the increasingly small one addiction had created for you.

And of course, tying it all together is the continuing work together as a family to build and strengthen those patterns of communication, negotiating and healing which support whole family healing. Through individual family therapy and multi-family groups, the foundation is laid for a return home. Support continues with an individualized plan of care which includes 12-Step support, outpatient counseling, aftercare and telephone recovery support for you and your family.


Cumberland Heights offers an extended care adolescent program after primary treatment that can be used to extend the treatment experience from 45 to 120 days. All extended care adolescent programs are self-pay as they no longer meet insurance criteria for a residential level of care and we are not contracted with any insurance providers for this service. First Forty Five days: $12,825 ($285.00 per day)
For additional days, past initial 45 days, cost is $265.00 per day

Cumberland Heights Licensed Adolescent Treatment Team will make the recommendation for any additional treatment past 45 days and can range anywhere from an additional 2 weeks up to another 45 days.

Physicians’ services are billed separately through CHPA. Prescriptions unrelated to detox are forwarded to an outside pharmacy for your convenience and will be billed to your insurance for you. Most medications can be brought with you to treatment and will be reviewed by your attending physician.

We offer 30 days of primary care at Cumberland Heights followed by 60 days of Extended Care – typically $42,000.00 – with pay in full discount makes the total due $39,900.00.
