What We Do
The UP Foundation addresses the specific needs of young people needing recovery support services from substance use and mental health disorders. We are the only program of its kind in Virginia. Our goal is to help young people heal and stay emotionally healthy. Our outpatient recovery support services help young people get the help they need while continuing to live at home. We provide individual, group and family counseling, recovery coaching and peer support, therapeutic mentoring, after-school enrichment, and fun, recreational activities – all designed to help young people not only cope, but to thrive and reach their full potential. Older persons are served on an individual basis. We give participants the tools they need to recover from trauma, stay emotionally healthy, live drug free lives, be successful, and reach their “Unlimited Potential.” At The UP Foundation, we go the extra mile to transform one life at a time, and are committed to our vision to help every young person we encounter to live the best life he or she was meant to have. From prevention to treatment and recovery, The UP Foundation is here for you!
Interesting Info
  • Since 2015, we have helped over 325 young people and their families. We have a 70% success rate for those participants who come to us regularly over six months.
  • Because 90% of all addictions and 70% of mental health problems begin in adolescence, we address recovery, resilience and healing at its earliest stages.
