Yes We Can Youth Clinics offers a solution to many young people age 13 to 25 suffering from behavioural disorders/problems and/or addictions. Not doing things only by ourselves is one of the reasons why our success rate is far above average (about 70 %). Successful treatment does require strong commitment from both young adolescents as from their parents/caretakers. This mutual approach at Yes We Can Youth Clinics is often a turning point in the lives of many.
