Teen Mental Health Treatment
Do you suspect that your son or daughter is suffering with depression or an anxiety disorder? Have they turned to drugs or alcohol as a way to cope? If so, they are not alone. Despite what many people think, mental health disorders in adolescents are common. In fact, one out of five adolescents has a diagnosable mental health disorder, this includes major depressive disorder and severe behavior problems. Unfortunately, less than 50 percent of teenagers receive help for their disorder.
The good news is there are a number of effective treatments for teens who are struggling with substance abuse and a mental health condition. At Teen Treatment Center, a licensed teen rehab, your child can receive comprehensive treatment and get their lives back on the right track.

Symptoms of Mental Health Disorders in Teens
With mental health conditions being common among adolescents, it is important for you to be aware of the signs and symptoms. While these may vary by disorder, and can be difficult to pinpoint when substance abuse is involved, there are a few common signs. Be on the lookout for the following signs and symptoms of mental health disorders in teenagers:
- Mood swings
- Social withdrawal
- Decline in grades
- Self-medicating with drugs or alcohol
- Sudden changes in sleeping or eating patterns
- Loss of interest in hobbies
- Lack of energy
- Anger or irritability
Detecting a mental illness can be tricky since teenagers go through a number of behavioral, social and physical changes during adolescence. However, if your teenager is displaying any of the signs above, we urge you to speak with a licensed medical professional as soon as possible. If left untreated mental health disorders can be damaging to your teen’s life.

We have a multi-disciplinary team of psychiatrists, therapists, psychologists and registered nurses that are experienced with treating troubled adolescents.
Upon your teen’s arrival, they will receive an assessment from our clinical team. From there, our staff will develop a personalized treatment plan that not only addresses their disorder but also focuses on their physical and spiritual wellbeing. Our gender-separate treatment programs will prepare your teen for the future by teaching them how to cope with stress, avoid peer pressure and how to resolve relationship issues.

These therapies will help your teen avoid negative thought patterns and teach them how to change unhealthy behaviors.
Family involvement is paramount to your teen’s recovery. Family therapy gives you and your teenager the opportunity to heal, strengthen your relationship and learn positive ways to communicate.
Education is fundamental to your teen’s development. While your son or daughter is at our mental health facility, they will be able to continue their studies and receive therapy simultaneously––all under one roof. We realize that every teenager is at a different point in his or her educational journey. For that reason, your teen will continue their education by either taking online classes, GED prep, college prep work, vocational training or working on assignments from their school.
Recreational therapy will teach your teen to have fun without engaging in destructive behaviors, such as taking drugs. These recreational activities will allow them to work on their cardiovascular health on a daily basis. By participating in recreational therapy, your teen will work on their interpersonal communication, decision-making and time management skills.
