About Us

Next Generation Village provides a full continuum of care, including detox, inpatient treatment, residential treatment, and more.

At Next Generation Village, we're exclusively focused on adolescents who struggle with addiction, mental health disorders, or both issues simultaneously.

We believe that teens who dabble in substance use and abuse, and teens who develop addiction issues as a result, can recover. And as they recover, they can build up a suite of skills that could help them to handle all sorts of everyday challenges that come with adulthood.

We know that because we help teens to recover every single day. We've seen these stories firsthand. If your teen is struggling, we can help.
