THE GAVIN FOUNDATION
The Gavin Foundation operates more than a dozen adult and youth programs independently
or in collaboration with other agencies.
The Gavin Foundation recognizes that youth affected by drug and alcohol use face special challenges in building their recovery capacity. Their substance misuse undermines adolescent and young adult tasks of building support networks, defining values which guide life choices, and taking on greater responsibilities for self-care. Family relationships are damaged and educational losses undermine employment opportunities. To respond to these needs, Gavin Foundation has established specialized adolescent residential, community, educational and diversion programs.
