Our goal across all levels of care is to give our teenagers the tools to lead a healthy lifestyle when they choose to. We work to make them whole again and provide them with the coping skills they need most. We help them reintegrate into their families, schools, and society-at-large.
Many of our teens come to us in a great deal of pain and misery. They’re overwhelmed, hopeless, and barely staying afloat. We help ease their suffering, lead them back toward hope, and teach them to rediscover the joy of living. We give them the tools they need to regulate emotions, respond positively to conflict, and manage their self-defeating behaviors so they can build a life worth living—a life they enjoy, filled with things they love.
We give teens practical tools in the following four areas:
- Stress tolerance and management. We teach our teens how to handle the difficulties of life.
- Emotional regulation. We teach our teens to manage or change emotions when they need to.
- Interpersonal relationships. We teach our teens both the importance of, and how to, get along with people.
- Self-acceptance. We teach our teens to be mindful of where they are in the moment, without judgment.
