Teen & Adolescent Rehab Sacramento   

Adolescence is a time of significant growth, self-discovery, and transformation. During these years, teenagers deal with academic pressures, extracurriculars, work, and navigating both romantic and friend relationships—all while experiencing a whirlwind of emotions due to puberty. At Evolve, we understand the challenges faced by adolescents and commit ourselves to providing our clients with the essential mental health services, support, and guidance they need to begin their path to healing.

Who We Treat:

W​​e cater to teens between the ages of 12-17 who are dealing with mental health issues and/or substance abuse problems. Often, we assist families and adolescents through alcohol addiction treatment and drug addiction treatment, but we also treat dual-diagnosis clients. Our trained and experienced clinicians are equipped to support teenagers grappling with both simultaneously, making us both a drug and alcohol addiction treatment center and a center for teen mental health.

Here are some of the issues we see most often in our adolescent clients:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Self-harm
  • Suicidal ideation and behaviors
  • PTSD/trauma
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Gender dysphoria
  • Disordered eating
  • Mood dysregulation (difficulty coping with intense emotions, moods that go up and down throughout the day)
  • Psychosis
  • Behavioral dysregulation (impulsivity, rule-breaking, etc.)
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Borderline personality disorder

The Benefits of Rehab for Teens


Drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs specifically designed for teenagers offer a range of benefits tailored to the unique challenges and developmental stages of adolescence. These benefits include:


Age-Specific Treatment: 

A teen-specific mental health and drug and alcohol addiction treatment center focuses on the developmental, emotional, and psychological needs of adolescents. Treatment methods are designed to address issues common among teenagers, such as peer pressure, low self-esteem, identity issues, and family dynamics.


Peer Support: 

Being among peers who face similar challenges can be incredibly comforting for teens. It fosters a sense of belonging and understanding, reducing feelings of isolation. Peer groups also provide a platform for sharing experiences and coping strategies.


Family Involvement: 

Many teen rehab programs emphasize family therapy and involvement as a crucial part of recovery. This approach helps to repair and strengthen family relationships, educates family members about addiction and mental health, and involves them in the recovery process.


Educational Support: 

Teen rehab centers often incorporate educational programs or coordinate with educational institutions to ensure that adolescents continue their education during treatment. This support helps teens not to fall behind academically, which is important for their future success and self-esteem.

Development of Healthy Habits:

A drug and alcohol addiction treatment center for teens teaches valuable life skills and healthy habits that can help them manage stress, resist peer pressure, and make better decisions. These skills are crucial for personal growth and preventing relapse.


Tailored Therapeutic Approaches: 

Our therapies are tailored to be age-appropriate and engaging for teens. This might include a mix of traditional therapy, experiential therapy (like art, music, or adventure therapy), and newer therapeutic models suited to younger individuals. We also offer medication assisted treatment where necessary.


Transition and Aftercare Planning: 

We offer comprehensive aftercare planning to support teens in their transition back to daily life. This might include ongoing therapy, support groups, and monitoring to help maintain recovery.


Addressing Co-occurring Disorders: 

Many adolescents struggle with dual diagnoses, such as depression and substance use. Our teen rehab centers are equipped to diagnose and treat these co-occurring disorders simultaneously, which is essential for effective recovery.


Social Skills Development: 

Rehab for teens also focuses on developing social skills, such as communication, conflict resolution, and empathy. These skills are vital for building and maintaining healthy relationships.


A Safe and Structured Environment: 

Residential treatment provides a safe, structured environment free from the distractions and triggers of everyday life. This setting allows adolescents to focus solely on their recovery.


Choosing a residential treatment program that specializes in treating teenagers can provide a more effective and supportive recovery process, addressing not just the symptoms of addiction or mental health issues, but also the underlying causes in the broader context of the adolescent’s life.
