Bradley Hospital offers two outpatient programs, the Co-occurring Disorders Program (CDP) and the Wave Clinic, to help adolescents who struggle with mental health and substance use issues and their families. 

The programs are similar in approach, but the CDP is more intensive.

Our multidisciplinary team tailors several evidence-based treatment methods, including motivational enhancement and cognitive behavioral therapies, to meet the needs of each youth.

The CDP offers three hours of comprehensive care three days each week, and may extend as long as several months. In the Wave Clinic, the duration of treatment depends on the goals of the adolescent and his or her family.

Because these programs are offered on an outpatient basis, students may attend continue their schooling and put their new skills to work in their daily lives. Our experts provide adolescents and their families the best evidence-based therapies and the opportunity to participate in clinical trials of innovative behavioral and pharmacological interventions.

Support for Parents

Bradley Hospital offers a support group for parents of 11- to 17-year-olds who are struggling with both substance use and mental health issues. The focus is on parents learning how to support teens as they work through the stages of change and how to encourage them to adopt positive behaviors.

The group meets from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Mondays in the hospital’s welcome center conference room. For more information, contact the Bradley outpatient department at 401-432-1119 or email
