AFS delivers a proven treatment for teens with alcohol and drug problems. Counseling services are provided in an outpatient setting at one of our two Eugene locations: Oregon Social Learning Center Developments, Inc. (ODI) and Centro Latino Americano (Centro) and can be provided in English or Spanish.
Adolescent & Family Services provides an evidence-based treatment for youth addiction called Contingency Management (CM). CM includes cognitive behavioral and behavioral approaches with active parent involvement. Research has shown that CM is one of the most effective treatments for teen substance use.
The benefits of treatment
There are many benefits of treatment, including:
- Improved family relationships
- Improved peer relationships
- Improved school functioning
- Improved community functioning

What to expect
Treatment sessions occur at least once a week. In general, each session lasts approximately 60 to 90 minutes, and every attempt is made to begin and end sessions on time. In addition to office sessions, therapists may schedule phone sessions as part of treatment. Treatment is individualized to each family’s needs. It is important to note, however, that our program is not a “quick fix.” Services are most effective when there is a high level of parent support and involvement in treatment and when adolescents are committed and cooperative.
Our confidentiality policy
As with all clinical services at OSLC and Centro, Adolescent & Family Services provides confidential treatment.
About the AFS Clinic
Clients are served at one of the AFS Clinic’s two Eugene locations: Oregon Social Learning Center (OSLC) Developments, Inc. and Centro Latino Americano.
How does my child qualify for treatment at the clinic?
Treatment at Adolescent & Family Services is provided as part of a research study. The study requires parents and youth to participate in research surveys and research interviews. Parents and youth earn money for the research interviews. The money is for research interviews, not for time spent in treatment sessions. If parents or youth do not want to participate in research, Adolescent & Family Services can provide referrals to other local clinics for treatment.
What will treatment cost?
There are no out-of-pocket charges for treatment. The clinic will accept Oregon Health Plan (Trillium Health Plan) or will cover the cost of treatment with a grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. To receive treatment at Adolescent & Family Services, families must qualify and consent to participate in research.
How do I schedule an appointment?
