New Perspectives - Oct, 1991 Issue 

Sierra Tucson Adolescent Care
Tucson, AZ 85737

I just received a brochure in the mail announcing the opening of Sierra Tucson Adolescent Care (STAC) in the Fall of 1991. The literature describes it as a residential treatment center for adolescents ages 13-18 that specializes in working with adolescents who are suffering from problems associated with alcohol, drugs or emotional and behavioral disorders. It describes the Sierra Model™ as offering a Twelve Step approach with the best features of medicine, psychiatry, psychology, and spirituality. It further describes it as emphasizing healing with support and love of family members to assist in treatment of the patient. Also, they say this enables the patient and family to focus on the determination toward wholeness and health.

Regarding academics, they claim an extensive academic assessment to help identify particular learning differences, and credentialed teachers assisting the adolescent in maintaining current scholastic requirements by working closely with the patient's home school.

The stated goal is to work toward developing constructive behaviors to replace the self-destructive behaviors so common in adolescents that suffer from chemical abuse, sexual dysfunction and aggressive behavior, by offering skills in decision making, self reliance and independence.
