We recognize that an adolescent may be traumatized by an event, or by real or perceived losses. A teen exposed to a traumatic event may become arrested or “stuck” at an emotional level. When this happens the teen begins to rely on destructive thoughts and behaviors. These defenses can become addictive and inhibit recovery.
We help each teen learn to accept and handle their emotions in a healthy way. We incorporate experiential approaches to achieve this goal, including psycho-education, and therapeutic discussions. We provide individual, group, activity therapy, art therapy, pet therapy, and family therapy.
The adolescent treatment staff consists of committed, competent and experienced professionals who work together as a team to address the core issues affecting each teen. We rely on intense family and parent involvement throughout the entire therapeutic process, in the development of treatment plans and aftercare planning.
