Another Choice, Another Chance is a network of national behavioral healthcare organizations dedicated to reducing  the harm caused by alcohol and dug addiction and mental health disorders among youth, adults and families.


Another Choice, Another Chance was founded in 1987 to improve the quality of life for youth and families.  For the first 10 years we worked primarily with youth involved with alcohol and drugs, who were involved in the criminal justice system and who had been suspended or expelled from mainstream school.  In 2001 we included mental heath and dual diagnosis treatment to services for our youth and families.  We understand specialize in the relationship of  mental health and addiction and how it interferes with daily life functions.  To further enhance the quality of life for youth and families in the communities we serve, we begun providing adult addiction treatment services which includes clean and sober living, partial hospitalization services and Intensive outpatient services.
