About Helen Ross McNabb Center Inc CenterPointe Detoxification Unit

The Helen Ross McNabb Center operates within a 150-bed hospital-type setting serving the Greater St. Louis Metro, central Illinois and southeastern/central Missouri areas. Our program is accredited through the Joint Commission and licensed by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

Much like adults, adolescents struggle with the same challenges when patterns of drug or alcohol abuse take root in their daily lives. Considering how difficult the teenage years can be, the sooner a substance abuse problem is addressed the better. With a qualified staff of registered nurses, therapists, case managers and child psychiatrists, the Helen Ross McNabb Center can help your teen recover from the effects of substance abuse while helping your family through the process.

Treatment Options

Adolescents have an especially hard time controlling drug and alcohol use once the effects of addiction start to take hold. The hormonal changes and identity issues that normally occur during this period of development feed into drug-using urges, which can easily become a way of coping with everyday life.

In order to deal with the myriad of issues adolescents face in recovery, the Helen Ross McNabb Center offers a range of treatment program options, each of which addresses different levels or severities of substance abuse. Available treatment options include:

  • Short-term detox residential detox (adolescents) – for severe drug/alcohol problems
  • Outpatient detox treatment (adolescents and adults) – for mild to moderate substance abuse problems
  • Treatment for co-occurring mental health problems (adolescents and adults)
  • Public access to buprenorphine detox treatment
