Welcome to The CASTLE

The CASTLE (Clean And Sober Teens Living Empowered) is a short-term treatment center committed to the prevention, treatment, and abstinence of drug and alcohol use in adolescents.
It is the first adolescent-focused treatment facility of High Point Treatment Center, well-known for its excellent quality of care in adult addiction services. Up to 24 teenagers, ages 13-17, reside in a renovated brick building in Brockton, MA, learning how to maintain their goals of being clean and sober.
The program integrates traditional 12-Step and other recovery programs with a novel approach to treatment based on respect, brain-based neuroscience, and an appreciation of the influences of the home and social environment on a person's current emotional, psychological, and cognitive self-image. These are organized into a treatment philosophy called The IMAX Approach, created and developed by Dr. Joseph Shrand, CASTLE's Medical Director.

CASTLE Short-term Addiction Treatment Program

The CASTLE is a short-term 24-hour addiction treatment program for adolescents who abuse or are dependent on alcohol or drugs, which may be accompanied by mental health issues. Services include medical detoxification, addiction treatment, acute stabilization, dual diagnosis, psychiatry, psycho-educational groups, individual counseling, family therapy, group counseling, case management, aftercare planning, 12 Step meetings, and traditional AA/NA commitments.

CASTLE After-School Treatment Program (Opening in the Fall)

The CASTLE's After-School Treatment program runs Monday through Friday, offering adolescents a structured program to continue learning recovery skills. Each day new skills are taught such as recovery skill building, use of cognitive behavioral modification techniques, or relaxation exercises, to name a few. Groups are also held to address useful topics like building healthy relationships and anger management. Family collaboration or treatment is encouraged as a component of this service as well. The program usually begins in the late afternoon or early evening, based on patient needs, and runs for three hours. Healthy snacks and beverages are provided.

CASTLE Outpatient Adolescent Treatment Services

CASTLE adolescent outpatient behavioral health treatment at four of High Point's Outpatient sites consists of providing individualized services which meet the teen's needs as well as the teen's family. This could consist of individual, group, or family treatment. Work around important collateral relationships such as schools can also be incorporated into the plan as necessary. As it is a best practice, family collaboration or treatment is encouraged as long so it is considered clinically appropriate.
