Chemical Dependency and Mental Health Disposition Alternative

Chemical Dependency and Mental Health Disposition Alternative (CDMHDA) is specifically for youth with drug and alcohol or mental health problems. The program is usually a year long and involves chemical dependency and/or mental health treatment. Treatment needs are evaluated and assessed prior to them entering the program, so the youth have some awareness of their chemical dependency and/or mental health issues. Treatment is provided to the youth through various community treatment providers.
