This manual describes a unique hybrid model that integrates aspects of three treatment philosophies: social model/therapeutic community, medical/psychiatric models, as well as 12-step recovery. Thunder Road serves high severity adolescents with substance use and co-occurring psychiatric disorders, through short (30-50 days) and long-term (6 – 12 months) residential treatment tracks with a step-down outpatient continuing care phase. The program’s therapeutic milieu incorporates psychiatric and pediatric services, individual, group and family therapy, an onsite school, multidisciplinary assessments and treatment planning by a multi-disciplinary staff. The manual describes key clinical design concepts and program components of this promising treatment approach.

Included in the manual are the following topics:

  • Program background and guiding principles
  • Staffing pattern and multidisciplinary team approach
  • Treatment environment
  • Steps through the treatment model
  • Behavior modification and therapeutic milieu concepts
  • The residential phase of treatment
  • The continuing care phase
  • Family systems
  • Quality assurance and standards
