Evolve Treatment Centers, accredited by CARF and The Joint Commission, offers the highest caliber of behavioral health care for adolescents 12 to 17 years old struggling with mental health issues or substance abuse.

Some Teens Benefit from Intensive Day Treatment for Mental Health

As a therapist, you know healing doesn’t happen overnight.

If you’re treating an adolescent who needs more support than one therapy session a week, but whose symptoms do not merit residential rehab, a day treatment program may offer the perfect balance.

Day treatment can be a perfect choice for families during the summer months, because teens aren’t in school and they have the time and energy to dedicate to treatment.

Day treatment may also be protective for teens during the summer months, because emotional, behavioral, and substance use disorders can take a downward spiral when teens have too much unstructured, unsupervised time their hands.

Your teen client may just need an extra boost of intensive treatment to break them out of their current patterns and allow them to get their issues under control before going back to school in the fall.

More Advantages of Day Treatment:

  • Full day of evidence-based support
  • Full supervision by qualified mental health professionals
  • Complete range of complementary therapies
  • Stability and comfort of returning home every evening

If your adolescent patient needs a level of care that’re more intense than what you can offer in your outpatient practice, Day Programs Evolve Treatment Centers have several convenient locations in Southern and Northern California.
