One of the main goals of the Beaver County SOC is to provide a welcoming and efficient system of care for all people that the system serves. In order to do this, the System of Care does not focus on part of the population but serves children, transition-aged adolescents, adults, and older adults. The system is designed for any age group. Because the system is dedicated to treatment based on the needs of the individual, the SOC has to be flexible and adaptive to the needs of different groups and the potentially differing needs of individuals in those subgroups. The focus of the SOC is not on the system itself and what works best for the system. The System of Care is focused on the individual and the needs of the individual and the family.

The Reality Tour® is a program designed for youth aged 10+ with a parent, because research indicates that youth are first exposed to alcohol, tobacco or other drugs between the ages of 10 through 12. Studies show that adolescents who have a parent or other adult mentor are less likely to participate in risky behaviors.
