Empowering teens (age 13-18) and their families to heal and recover, together.
Covered by most health insurance plans, our Adolescent Behavioral Health Treatment program provides evidence-based whole-person treatment and support that engages the entire family in a teen’s road to recovery.
How the program works
Since no person’s needs are exactly the same, there is no single, pre-determined path of treatment at McCall. That’s why the first step in our program is a comprehensive assessment conducted by one of our masters-level therapists.
Based on each individual’s needs, the therapist works together with families to develop personalized treatment plans specifically designed to address behavioral health conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression, vaping, or substance use.
Services available within the program:
Intensive Outpatient Program
Teens with substance use and/or mental health issues attend sessions three afternoons per weeks for up to three hours per session. The evidence-based curriculum addresses substance use disorder, mental health, and trauma, including toxicology screens and contingency management.
Teens can come together in a therapeutic setting to connect with, learn from, motivate and support other teens struggling with similar issues. Group therapy creates a positive environment that shows participants they’re not alone and they can reach their goals together.
A psychiatrist and a psychiatric nurse practitioner are available to consult with teens and their guardian to evaluate and prescribe psychiatric medication, as needed. A combination of counseling and medication can help individuals make positive changes and long-term success.
Teens will have the opportunity to develop a trusting relationship with their therapist where they feel understood and can authentically express themselves. Through the use of evidenced based practices, they’ll will learn healthy ways to cope with stressors, resolve conflict, manage emotions, and improve relationships.
Family sessions focus on a family’s ability to solve problems and learn new ways to express thoughts and emotions in a productive manner. They explore family roles, rules and behavior patterns to identify issues that contribute to conflict and learn healthier ways to manage family struggles, while achieving a strong sense of togetherness.
