LAS VEGAS, Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Vencer Youth Services is a new outpatient treatment facility that operates and runs in a staple Las Vegas community, near Summerlin. Their mission is to provide evidence based addiction treatment for teens (ages 13-18 years) while guiding them through the recovery process. They are dedicated to providing the best adolescent treatment in Southern Nevada.

Boasting a team of well respected clinicians within our space, Ph.D. candidate and Vencer's Clinical Director Sydney Smith, LPC, LADC, NCGC, aims to spearhead therapeutic innovation in a safe and friendly setting with excellence in clinical care. "I am dedicated to helping individuals and families who suffer from the disease of addictions. My aim is to restore and improve their lives through healing and recovery," underscores Smith. "I can talk about statistics and the fact that Nevada has a high rate of teen suicide, but the reality is that a lot of disparities can be prevented with the right treatment."

Vencer Youth's team of professionals was carefully selected. Tracy Davis, Executive Director stated, "Ms. Smith has a passion for addiction recovery. I knew that she would make the perfect addition to establish the first ever outpatient adolescent treatment facility in the Mojave." Davis insisted, "The epidemic Nevadans, let alone our nation overall experiences when it comes to addiction is overwhelming. This is our humble attempt to put a sizable dent in an area that is meaningful to us all."
