Our Adolescent Program is a community comprised of clients and families who are focused on overcoming adversity, improving family bonds, and building deep meaningful connections with their community. The adolescents in our program work with our team individually and in a group setting. Our staff incorporates Positive Psychology into treatment to help clients work through negative emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Adolescents also have access to academic support and tutoring facilitated by our staff members. We create a non-biased environment where entitlement is not acceptable. Our clients are considered teammates, rooting for each other's success and relying on one another and our staff for support.
Parents and families are an essential part of our Community. Parents are encouraged to attend family sessions throughout treatment. This makes our Community Group essential to our family program. Community Groups are held bi-weekly via Zoom, parents and/or guardians can discuss any difficulties they are having as a family with support of the Community. They can also learn about mental health issues and gain better language skills to communicate with their child. The Community Meeting also serves to give parents the opportunity to gain support from other parents in the program.
Prior to treatment, clients attend an intake appointment with an intake therapist. It is essential that we have an understanding of the adolescent's current and past living environments. This also helps the staff develop a plan to give the family the means for navigating through trouble spots.
During this time, the intake therapist will take time alone with both the adolescent and guardian(s). After speaking individually, the intake therapist will talk with the adolescent and guardian(s) together to create an individualized treatment plan that will determine their level of care, treatment schedule, and goals they would like to accomplish throughout treatment.
At this time, we include a review of the adolescent’s general health. If issues of concern surface in this review or during the treatment process, the client (if 18 or older) or guardian(s) will be advised to set up an appointment with their primary care physician. Adolescent and Young Adult Advocates can also recommend physicians from our network.
