Adolescent Center for Treatment

Adolescent Center for Treatment Virtual Tour

ACT is a 10-bed residential facility for adolescents experiencing problems related to drugs or alcohol. The program is staffed 24 hours a day by licensed clinicians, case managers and direct care staff, providing teens with a safe, trauma informed environment to begin their recovery. 

ACT has provided affordable and effective substance use disorder treatment for over 35 years. Our program utilizes evidence-based practices to help adolescents understand the harmful effects of alcohol and other drug use and develop the necessary attitudes and skills to support recovery. 

Treatment Goals

  • To identify the benefits of a clean and sober lifestyle. 
  • To improve family relationships, academic performance, and legal issues impacted by their substance use. 
  • To address co-occurring mental health concerns 
  • To develop an individualized recovery plan. 


  • Adolescents 12 to 18 years of age. 
  • An alcohol and drug assessment must indicate the need for residential treatment. 
  • Free of the need for major medical or psychiatric services. 


We accept Kansas Medicaid, Block Grant, private insurance and self-pay. Johnson County residents are eligible for a sliding scale fee based on income and family size. 

All clients are encouraged to participate in and referred to outpatient services upon discharge.
