Root Centers President and CEO Steven Zukerman spoke live on IHeart Radio on Monday 4/20/2019 to discuss the development of our adolescent IOP program. This intensive therapeutic program is available at all 8 clinic locations across the state. Each clinic offers a safe and clean environment with professional staff that are trained to engage at risk youth who present with substance use issues. Substance use among youth can lead to problems at school, cause or aggravate physical and mental health-related issues, promote poor peer relationships, cause motor-vehicle accidents, and place stress on the family. They can also develop into lifelong issues such as substance dependence, chronic health problems, and social and financial consequences.
