Our approach to mental health and substance abuse treatment for teens and adolescents is a bit different than what you may have seen before. While we focus on clinical excellence and employ proven, evidence-based treatment modalities here, we never lose sight of heart and soul. Recovery is about more than just medical science and psychotherapy, after all.
Teens struggling with depression or addiction are often in crisis. Being a teenager is tough already. You’re struggling to find your identity and understand your place in the world. Your hormones are surging, emotions run high. You’re experiencing new feelings and facing challenges you’ve never faced before. When depression, anxiety or substance use disorders enter that equation too, it can be a recipe for chaos.
In our view, every teen we treat needs to feel seen, heard, and understood. Our mission is not only to help them overcome their substance use disorder and learn to manage their mental health. It is also to empower and inspire them. We treat and heal at Turning Point Healing Centers, but we also engage and educate. Every teen we treat gains a greater understanding of their condition and symptoms, but they also get practical tools for managing their emotions and making better decisions.
