The Benefits of Teen Treatment

A comprehensive mental health and substance use treatment program can help your teen heal from issues that are creating obstacles to his or her ability to live a life of balance, peace, and productivity by providing:

  • Detox and medical stabilization that addresses withdrawal symptoms and health issues
  • Diagnosis of co-occurring behavioral issues, mental health disorders, learning disabilities, and/or interpersonal issues to identify underlying problems
  • Treatment for mental health and substance use disorders to ensure steady progress on all fronts
  • Extensive holistic care through outdoor activities that improves physical health while building confidence and autonomy
  • Intensive family therapy to improve communication skills and rebuild the relationships that are primary to a teen’s ability to succeed in recovery

How You Can Help Your Child Succeed in Treatment

  • Learn all you can about your teen’s drug of choice, addiction information, and treatment options as well as any mental health issues he or she has been diagnosed with
  • Take part in our family support groups
  • Actively participate in family therapy with your teen

  • Be a positive role model

Family Therapy Is Essential

Your involvement in our family therapy program will not only help your teen as he or she works through issues but also aids you and other members of your family in moving forward and healing after living with chaos at home. Without your participation in family therapy, your teen will make far less progress during treatment and after returning home. Family therapy offers:

  • A safe forum for all to vent frustrations
  • An objective bystander to guide conversations
  • Therapeutic advice and assistance
  • Help improve communication skills
  • Goals and therapeutic movement toward family goals
