Teen Mental Health Treatment Centers Prove Their Worth

As mental health issues become more identifiable and more teens need an early intervention, the number of mental health treatment centers continues to grow. Research has shown that residential treatment is effective in helping people overcome their issues.

Who do they treat in teen mental health treatment centers?

This varies from program to program. Many mental health treatment centers focus on an age group, such as middle schoolers or high schoolers. Some of them place emphasis on treatment for neurodevelopmental disorders or trauma. Some common issues that teen mental health centers treat include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Self-harm
  • School refusal
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Substance use
  • Bipolar Disorder

What makes them effective?

Specialized Programming: Unlike regular therapy, teen mental health treatment centers can create long, thorough plans for each individual coming into their program. This allows for a more effective treatment.

Trained, Stable Leadership: In residential treatment, there is 24/7 supervision for your child. This is done by highly trained, passionate staff that love to help teens reach their full potential. This also creates a stable, reliable leadership structure that is very beneficial for struggling teens.

Safe Space: With regular therapy, it’s difficult for teens to apply what they learn in therapy to the real world. In mental health treatment centers, teens are given the opportunity to apply their therapy, make mistakes, and learn in a safe, supervised setting.

Family Involvement: What good is sending your child to a program if they can’t apply it back home? These programs integrate family therapy sessions in order to help the whole family heal and grow together.
