Child and Youth Behavioral Health Services

Youth Contact offers the following child and youth behavioral health services to address mental health and chemical dependency dilemmas faced by children and youth:

Child, Youth and Family Counseling Program

Youth Contact offers outpatient and intensive outpatient child, youth and family counseling program for Washington County children and youth under the age of 18 with behavioral and emotional problems. 

We take a strengths-based, action-oriented and practical approach to our therapy practice.  After a comprehensive assessment, treatment is uniquely designed to meet the specific needs of each child and family.  We value the partnership between clinicians and family members throughout all phases of a child's treatment, and regularly include community-based resources in the treatment process to maximize our clients' successful participation in the community.

Chemical Dependency Services

Youth Contact offers chemical dependency treatment for children and youth under the age of 18 with substance abuse issues.  Our services include prevention, intervention, and treatment ranging from school-based support and activities to outpatient counseling, intensive outpatient counseling, and follow-up and aftercare. 

Our approach is strengths-based, action-oriented and practical, and treatment plans are specific to each individual. We consider the family to be partners in the youth's counseling and engage them in the process whenever possible. We maintain regular, ongoing contact with the youth's school and other community entities in which he/she is involved.  The goal is to empower clients and families to successfully participate in their communities and to teach them the skills to do so, thereby promoting long term change.

Integrated Chemical Dependency Services

All of our clinicians are trained to assess and treat clients with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse issues.


Youth Contact is an Oregon Health Plan Provider and many other insurance carriers cover our services as well. Please contact us directly for more information about our programs.
