About

Arizona's Best IOP Program for Teen Substance Use

ASAP, the Adolescent Substance Abuse Program, has proven itself Arizona's finest outpatient treatment program for substance abuse in teens ages 13-19 since 1991. In 2021 ASAP proudly celebrated its 30-year anniversary. ASAP is an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Thousands of families have found that the ASAP IOP Program can produce the "real-world" lifestyle changes that yield lasting sobriety for teens and a greatly improved quality of life for the entire family. The ASAP Program is found at three locations to cover the entire Valley: 1) 3839 E. Shea Boulevard in Phoenix, 2) 2530 S. Alma School Road in Mesa, and 3) 8607 N. 59th Avenue in Glendale. Just one phone number for all three locations: (602) 434-0249. All major health insurance plans are accepted. And note: ASAP is now contracted with some AHCCCS plans-- Health Choice, United, and Banner University.)

Teens and Parents Get Help Together

At ASAP, active participation is made by both adolescents and their parents. The teens attend group therapy three evenings per week for 10 weeks. Parents attend one of these group therapy sessions each week, with their teen, in Parent Night. An eclectic treatment model is utilized to approach adolescents from many angles. The copyrighted ASAP Curriculum serves as a proven therapy tool at all three sites, with special focus on Motivational Interviewing and the Stages of Change Model. ASAP Homework is a series of growth-oriented assignments completed between group therapy sessions and on weekends. Outcome studies are conducted to measure treatment success and provide the feedback that ASAP psychologists use to maintain continuous quality improvement. Parents and professionals find the ASAP website a very helpful source of information: www.asapaz.com.

How does ASAP Work?

Group therapy is the treatment of choice. The power of positive peer pressure is unmatched as a change agent with teens. The duration of group therapy is very significant, matching the severity of the teen's drug/alcohol use problem. A "Best Practices" mandate has guided ASAP since its inception. Only proven interventions are utilized. This evidence-based approach yields consistent therapeutic success. Special focus is put on Motivational Interviewing and the Stages of Change model. Urinalysis is utilized to assess abstinence and honesty, and combat denial. Parents are taught how to use urinalysis at home as an effective deterrent. Family participation is mandated. Teens attend group therapy three evenings per week for 10 weeks. Parents attend one of those sessions each week at Parent Night. Families receive the help necessary to re-establish healthy bonds, improve communication, and set proper limits. Teens are taught the coping skills necessary to maintain sobriety: refusal skills, peer selection, problem solving, communicating with parents, coping with emotions, conflict resolution, identifying high risks, and relapse prevention. Help for parents is available with: home contracts, communication, conflict resolution, setting limits, identifying healthy friends, homework assignments, and drug testing at home. Families progress through treatment together.
