Frequently Asked Questions

You may have a ton of questions about our day treatment programs. You may not even know what to ask. Either way, we are here to help. If your question isn’t answered, call or text us today to learn more about our programs and how we can support you in the next chapter of your teen’s story.

How do I schedule my teen’s first appointment?

Seeking treatment or support is a courageous choice. We want to make it as easy and comfortable as possible. Our stress-free admissions process begins with a confidential phone call to one of our experienced advisors. We will not make your teen discuss details of their trauma, but rather will seek to understand the struggles they are facing today as a result. Once scheduled for an appointment, your teen will meet with a therapist to make a plan to achieve those goals. Most insurance companies cover our program, so finances are not a barrier.

How do I know what level of care my teen needs?

People can think they have to be “really bad off” to schedule a session. Nothing could be further than the truth. Therapy is an important self-care and growth practice. We encourage teens to meet with one of our therapists for a session and let us help them discern the level of care. This is part of what we are trained to do.

However, If you or a loved one are in crisis, you can get help right away by reaching out to a helpline through phone, text message, or online chat. A therapist is a good support when not in crisis.

How do I get my loved one to go to therapy?

It is important that someone chose therapy for themselves instead of trying to appease someone else. Encouraging someone you care about to look into possible therapy options, even offering to review potential therapists with them, is a good way to show support. People who feel forced into therapy may feel resistant and find it harder to put in the work needed to make a change.

How do I know if my teen needs therapy?

Talking with a therapist can benefit teens struggling with emotional difficulties, life challenges, and mental health concerns. Therapy can be very helpful if feeling overwhelmed, fatigued, resentful, anxious, depressed, apathetic, panic attacks, or socially withdrawn.

Therapy requires honesty, with yourself and with the therapist you work with. But if your teen is willing to do the work, therapy can be rewarding. It is a safe, judgment-free space where you can share anything, with a trained professional who is there to help. Therapy is also a good self-improvement tool that teaches people skills that enhance communication, self-awareness, boundaries, and stress reduction.
