Penny Lane Centers announces the Grand Opening of their Youth Residential Substance Use Disorder Treatment Facility and Programs; Offering the Road to Recover

Penny Lane Centers today celebrated the grand opening of its Youth Residential Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Treatment Facility designed to benefit more than 300 youth annually. This 50 bed center will provide evidenced based practices that promote and sustain clean and sober living.  
By providing Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Programs, which will serve not only youth (aged 12-17); but also adults at their North Hills, Lancaster and Commerce locations; this event highlights the organization’s continued commitment to meet the needs of the underserved and to expand their Mental Health programs and services.

“Drug and alcohol abuse are a continually increasing problem,” said Ivelise Markovits, the Founder and Executive Director of Penny Lane Centers, “and there are no group facilities for youth in our County. Our program will provide not only youth residential, but also desperately needed Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient services for youth and adults.”

Typically, there is a waiting list for this type of residential program and the full spectrum of care including on site mental health services and recovery support services (aftercare) will be provided.
There will be 24 hour supervision in a safe and compassionate setting; individual, group and family counseling, educational programs, and life skills, health/wellness, and fitness classes.

The Ribbon Cutting Celebration is scheduled on:

March 22, 2018
15302 Rayen St.
North Hills, CA  91343
10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Local dignitaries, politicians and members of county services will be in attendance and the public is welcome.
