Welcome to AY

AY recognizes that treatment for youth must consider their cognitive, emotional and social development and be aware of the impact that alcohol and other drugs have on mental health and the normal transition to adulthood.

The philosophy of AY is that treatment must be customized to meet individual needs and respect client choice.
