EVOLVE Outpatient Programs (OP) support adolescents 12-17 years old who live at home and attend school but need support for mental health, addiction, and behavioral issues.
A Balanced Approach
At the outpatient level of care, teens receive three hours of treatment, three to five days a week. Our outpatient program may be appropriate for teenagers who need more structure than weekly psychotherapy or those transitioning from partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient level of care.
Experienced, Professional Staff
Our staff is handpicked to provide the highest level of care available. On-site staff includes nurses, residential counselors, and licensed therapists. Our counseling staff is made up of experienced clinicians, masters-level interns, and certified recovery coaches who bring a diverse and eclectic background to the treatment experience. While it’s not always possible, we do our best to have one staff member on-site who has kids of their own. We understand the experience of being a parent goes a long way when helping teens through the challenges of substance issues, behavioral problems, and emotional challenges.
Our teens receive solution-focused, data-driven, evidence-based, results-oriented therapy. Everything we do is geared toward changing behavior and finding the right combination of treatment and support. Since no two teenagers are alike, no two treatment plans are alike. During the admissions process, we conduct a thorough assessment, establish a baseline, and create an Individual Recovery Plan based on specific needs and goals. Recovery Plans include a combination of the following therapeutic modes:
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
- Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Mindfulness-Based Dialectical/Cognitive Therapy (MBD/CT)
- 12-Step Support Programs
- Individual Family Therapy
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Our teens also take part in a wide range of innovative experiential therapies, such as:
Equine-Assisted Therapy (Horses)
Music, Art, and Dance
What Happens Next?
We know the rest of the world doesn’t pause for our teens or their families during treatment. In our Outpatient Program, we offer career and college counseling, vocational opportunities, educational support, and student advocacy. Each center is equipped with a state-of-the-art computing facility that enables students to access public and/or private online learning programs and resources.
From the moment a family commits to our program, we begin work on a transition plan, with a focus on personal growth, achievement, and stable, sustainable integration into the most positive situation possible after treatment.
Evolve works closely with parents, schools, and referring providers to ensure a seamless continuity of care between levels of therapy. The Evolve team gathers critical data and engages in dialogue regarding problem and treatment history, strengths and deficits, and avenues for growth.
