True Star Behavioral Health Program


True Star Behavioral Health is a youth focused treatment agency state certified in August of 1998. It was started due to the lack of services available for youth and adolescents in our community. It is currently the largest youth treatment program in Clallam County and services are provided by licensed, experienced clinicians who can provide chemical dependency, mental health, and family counseling. True Star believes in serving the whole family and it is our hope that everyone in the family system will feel supported during their involvement with us.

True Star has been the privileged recipient of two consecutive federal (SAMHSA) and state (DBHR) grant collaborations since the fall of 2012. These grant projects specialize in youth treatment enhancement. We use a best practice assessment (GAIN long version) as well as a co-occurring treatment model (ACRA) in addition to care management and recovery support services. 

The data being reported thus far since our grant involvement is showing excellent True Star treatment results in areas such as:  increasing substance abstinence, reducing recidivism, improving healthy social connectedness, and reduction in Juvenile Justice involvement.

True Star Behavioral Health offers the following services:

Alcohol/Drug Assessments: We assess youth aged 12-17 for alcohol/drug problems and make recommendations based upon these findings.

CDDA Assessments and Treatment Placement: This program includes help with inpatient services and/or referral to Drug Court for one year of outpatient services.

Drug Court: The assessments are conducted through Juvenile Services. Drug Court youth are case managed through Juvenile Services by the Drug Court Case Manager/Liaison.
