Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Outpatient & Inpatient?

Outpatient facilities do not provide overnight care. Inpatient facilities do provide overnight hospitalization and care. Vencer Youth Services is an Outpatient provider only.

Do you provide intervention support?

We do not provide this support directly but we work with an excellent group that can provide this service. Call us at, 702-267-6277 and we can assist you.

What is the length of stay?

Research shows the longer clients stay in treatment, the better their chances of sustained recovery. To ensure maximum success, we offer 30-to-90-day programs based on individual needs.

What is aftercare?

An aftercare or discharge plan is a collaborative effort between the client and treatment team that helps the client cope with post-treatment challenges. Aftercare arranges for ongoing success in all areas of life. All of our clients leave treatment with a detailed aftercare plan complete with the contacts and resources needed to continue along the road of recovery—like medical appointments, local therapeutic resources, 12-step support groups, sober or transitional living, or any necessary means of continued support. Aftercare also includes follow-up calls between staff and clients, and our alumni program.

Is Vencer Youth Services Accredited/Licensed?

Yes, we are SAPTA certified treatment center.

What type of professionals will be working with my son or daughter?

Our team is comprised of Addiction Counselors, PhD’s in Clinical Psychology, Family & Individual Therapists, Educational Counselors, and a Child/Adolescent Psychiatrist.

Do you encourage the 12 steps such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Gamblers Anonymous?

Yes. AA and GA are supportive recovery tools that encourage positive change. In conjunction with our evidenced based treatment plans, these programs lay a strong foundation for recovery.

What is your approach or policy toward involving family members?

Family involvement can play a significant role in the treatment process. Private family sessions and multifamily group sessions are made available to support each client’s treatment plan. We also recognize that each family dynamic is different and therefore treatment should be tailored to accommodate unique circumstances.

My son/daughter will be discharged from an inpatient treatment center. They suggested a “step-down” program. Is that what your program is?

If a lower level of care is advised Vencer Youth Services provides an ideal step down program that can provide a continuum of care, allowing a client to move from a more intensive treatment environment to a less intensive program. The reverse is also true. We provide PHP (day treatment) and IOP (partial day treatment) programs. We can also customize on an ongoing therapeutic plan that can include individual and family therapy. This allows your child to gradually integrate into “normal” life with the best chance for possible for sustained recovery.

My child suffers from anxiety as well as addiction. Can you still help?

Yes, absolutely. Our treatment plans are designed to help those who have co-occurring mental health issues (depression, anxiety, bi-polar, etc) as well as addiction problems. We can also provide psychiatric services that may include medication management, where necessary, and only with parents express and written approval.

How long are your treatment programs?

Programs are individually tailored and can last from as short as 2 weeks to 90 days.

What if I don’t have insurance or don’t want to use my insurance. Can you still help?

Yes, we accept private pay only clients. Rates depend on the specific program entered into. We can discuss these with you over the phone or in person.
