Substance Use Services

Orchard Place Substance Use Services is an outpatient drug treatment program that serves Iowa children and teens under the age of 18 who are experiencing problems at school, in the community or in their daily lives due to alcohol and/or drug use. These children and teens may also be struggling in family, peer, or school environments. Our substance use treatment approach uses motivational interviewing and a co-occurring mental health perspective in group, individual, and family sessions.

Assessments/Evaluations can be scheduled by calling 515-697-5705

Substance Use Services can include:

  • Individual evaluations
  • Extended outpatient, Intensive outpatient, and Continuing Care
  • Substance use education and diversion classes
  • DOT-approved DUI assessments
Orchard Place PACE Substance Use Services has seen a recent increase in adolescent opioid use, both purposeful and accidental.  Naloxone Access Information offers resources to those in need. 


Referrals can be received from the youth themselves, their parent/guardian, Juvenile Court, DHS, Polk County Judges, and the community. Services are funded through Title XIX or private insurance. Your children are not required to have system involvement to receive services. Substance Use Education classes are held quarterly and are available to the public for a $50.00 - $100.00 fee.
