Our Core Services
4 Kids 2 Kids offers a safe, home-like environment for their residents.
4 Kids 2 Kids program offers trauma specific treatment to survivors of commercial sexual exploitation and for those who are at risk. Since its inception, our program has served in helping victims restore their lives. Survivors of CSEC have experienced complex emotional, physical, and sexual trauma requiring specific treatment interventions. Survivors of CSEC experience emotional, behavioral, and mental health symptoms that often go unidentified or misdiagnosed. Without proper support and treatment the risk for being re-victimized is high. Through our program survivors receive treatment and support to address safety needs, gain understanding of the victimization they have experienced, improve self-esteem, develop motivation for change, improve life skills, and empower them to reach future goals.

fitness, stress reduction, healthy choices
Physically active kids tend to be more physically fit, have stronger bones and muscles, and feel better about themselves -- they have reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression. They also have a lower risk of developing heart disease, colon cancer, and type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, regular physical activity helps kids of all ages with weight control. In fact, when it comes to a healthy weight, being physically active is just as important for kids as eating right. Regular physical activity helps control the percentage of body fat in children and teens. Studies have shown that overweight and obese kids can reduce their body fat by participating in 30 to 60 minutes of moderately intense physical activity, three to five days a week, learning how to cope with everyday stress using proper coping skills which lead to better choices.
Healthy eating during adolescence is important as body changes during this time affect an individual's nutritional and dietary needs. Teens are becoming more independent and making many food decisions on their own. Many teens have a growth spurt and an increase in appetite and need healthy foods to meet their growth needs. Teens tend to eat more meals away from home than younger children. They are also heavily influenced by their peers. In keeping with our mind, body, and spirit platform we have on staff a chef who prepares meals that are nutrition based for the demographic we serve.

Centerstone provides detox services to teens struggling with addiction and require medical supervision to safe and comfortable detox. While participating in services, residents receive a medical exam and lab work. Individual, group and family programming focuses on education that targets the addiction process, stages of change, motivation to change, identification of relapse triggers, family dynamics and continued sobriety. Sober fun and leisure are part of recovery. We specializes in co-occurring mental health and trauma care.
