At Evolve, we create a safe, positive, productive environment where real change happens daily.

Evolve offers JCAHO-accredited residential treatment, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient programs throughout California for adolescents ages 12- 17 struggling with mental health, substance abuse, and/or behavioral issues. We utilize a range of evidence-based practices, including dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, prolonged exposure therapy, and experiential therapies, including equine-assisted therapy, art, and drama therapy. Our well-established treatment model – which includes small, supportive milieus, robust safety standards, and customized treatment plans – is effective for adolescents from all over the country.

We know the decision to place your child in treatment is not an easy one. However, once you commit to Evolve, we commit to you. We’re here to support you for the duration.

Community Workshops for Parents and Families

Once a month, Evolve hosts a webinar for parents and families who would like to learn more about mental health topics so they can best support their teens and improve family dynamics.

Visit our Events page for a list of upcoming webinars and links to register. As dates and topics are confirmed, we will add workshops and seminars, so check back often for updates. We hope you will join us for these educational opportunities!
