Youth Excel & Advancement is a mental health counseling agency that provides support in the public school setting, in-home setting, and the community to focus on the mental health, behavioral intervention, and substance abuse needs of children, adolescents, and adults.


It is an extension of educational services which are available to schools in the Metro-Richmond and surrounding areas.  The objective is to increase student success so as to prevent the need for a more restrictive placement. The objective of our substance abuse program is to achieve and maintain abstinence from the substance of abuse. 

The programs offered by Y.E.A. LLC were developed to provide needed support for students, adults, and their families.  Our goal is to work with students, teachers, the administration of the schools, adults facing addictive substance abuse issues and their families to develop and implement a plan to increase each client's academic success and achieve goals to sobriety.

Achievement in our program is determined by the goals a student and adult is able to meet as a result of enrollment in the program.
