Phase System Explained:
At Positive Alternatives, we incorporate a “Phase System” where phases are earned through treatment plan progress.  The four phases are:

  1. Youth identifies problem areas.
  2. Youth explores alternatives and interventions.
  3. Youth replaces old behaviors with new, alternate behaviors and interventions.
  4. Youth transitions back into the community.
