About The James Barry-Robinson Institute

The James Barry-Robinson Institute is a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to improving the lives of children, teens, young adults and their families.
We do this through our four program areas:

Outpatient Services

JBRI Outpatient Services provides Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) for teens and young adults ages 13-24 who are dealing with substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health challenges.


Next Step To Success

Next Step To Success is a program for youth 13-16 years old in Norfolk, Virginia, providing academic enrichment, character education curriculum, field trips and special events.
