Spectrum Health Systems, Inc. is in the process of opening a new substance abuse treatment program for adolescent girls in Phoenix, Arizona. The twenty-four bed program will provide four months of residential treatment followed by eight months of individualized aftercare programming in the community.

Two years ago Spectrum was awarded a contract to operate a similar program for adolescent boys on the same campus. Both programs are co-located in a newly constructed facility adjacent to the Maricopa County Juvenile Probation Department.

“This expansion demonstrates the success of Spectrum’s Youth Recovery Academy model,” said Spectrum President and CEO Charles Faris. “We are grateful for the County’s support and excited about working with the Juvenile Probation Department to extend much-needed programming to girls struggling with substance abuse and other issues.”

Based in Massachusetts, Spectrum Health Systems, Inc. is a private, not-for-profit provider of substance abuse treatment and mental health services. In addition to Arizona, Spectrum operates a range of institutional and community-based programs in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Georgia – serving more than 18,000 adults and at-risk youth each year.
