Sustain Recovery is an extended care program for adolescents who have primary substance use along with other co-occurring disorders that need extensive family work and a mid term range program. Sustain works with adolescents 13-17 primarily after they have completed shorter-term primary treatment or a wilderness program and need a little longer residential placement. The average length of stay is five to six months; Sustain is located in Anaheim Hills, California. There is the ability to supplement some of the family's financial burden through private insurance.
