Residential Addiction Treatment | Our Vision and Our Values

YSS celebrated 45 years of helping kids in 2021. The goal began as a simple one – help kids.

Ember Recovery, part of YSS, is an experiential, trauma-informed recovery program in central and north central Iowa, with safe and separate spaces for boys and girls. We also provide crisis stabilization, shelter, and residential addiction treatment.

A Lifetime of Support for a Lifetime of Recovery

Our Vision

A world where youth are valued and empowered to stand strong.

Core Values

Our core values align with the values of YSS:

  • Commitment
  • Collaboration
  • Compassion
  • Innovation
  • Integrity
  • “Can Do” Spirit

Most importantly, we work with teens and families to create hope and opportunity by putting kids first. Our skilled and experienced team of professionals is trained in a wide range of therapeutic approaches to serve you and your family.

In This Together | Residential Addiction Treatment

On a journey to recovery, families are an important part.  We integrate families into treatment through visits, family therapy, and virtual parent information sessions. We also host Strengthening Families Weekends to allow current residents and their families to connect through learning, meals, and games. 

In addition to teaching teens coping skills and strategies to utilize in recovery, we also teach parents how to support their kids through setting boundaries, rebuilding relationships, family bonding, and monitoring.

How to Get Started with Ember Recovery

Schedule a substance use evaluation for your teenager. This will give you a starting point and recommendation for the type of help they need.

Treatment Works. Recovery is Possible. Take the First Step.
