Through our vast experience, we recognize that young men ages 18-23 need their own specialized approach to assist them with substance abuse treatment and the challenging transition into adulthood. To address their unique circumstances and challenges, our Lake Villa Treatment Center offers a Residential Young Men’s Bridge Program to help young men gain important life skills while simultaneously addressing alcohol or drug abuse.

About the Young Men’s Bridge Program:

  • For future success, our counselors assist young men with planning for life after treatment. This may include preparing for continued education, vocational training or permanent employment.
