Azleway Substance Abuse Program (ASAP)

Founded in 1997, the Azleway Substance Abuse Program (ASAP) provides primary chemical dependency counseling and dual diagnosis for clients with mental health issues and concurrent co-health issues.

The staff, which includes licensed professional counselors and licensed chemical dependency counselors, works with young men ages 13-17 in a ranch setting in Big Sandy, Texas. Their goal is to help each youth develop a solid recovery program that includes relapse prevention planning and strong support systems through group and individual counseling, education and experiential group therapy.

ASAP also provides at least 20 hours per week of on-site academic instruction through the fully accredited Azleway charter school. The substance abuse program is funded in part by state monies, local probation departments and private pay/contributions. To learn more, contact director David Trest at 903-636-9800.
