We create an individualized treatment plan for every client. This is always a collaborative effort with the client, their family, a master’s level clinician, a recovery advocate, and a physician. Part of our mission as a clinical staff is to meet the client where he or she is in their recovery process and to take the approach that best fits their unique needs, while providing the necessary guidance and accountability to lay the groundwork for long-term recovery. This treatment plan also includes a path of action for continued treatment after discharge.
Treatment for Dual Diagnosis or Co-Occurring Disorders
Teens often begin abusing drugs and alcohol as a form of self-medication for underlying mental health issues. As a result, many of our clients have what is referred to as “co-occurring disorder” or “dual diagnosis,” meaning that they require treatment for substance use disorder and other mental health concerns.
Our founder, CEO, and medical director, Dr. Aflatoon, is state licensed and board certified in both general psychiatry and addiction psychiatry, equipping him and his team to treat substance use disorder along with any number of presenting mental health concerns clients may be struggling with.
Professionally-Trained Medical and Therapeutic Staff
The treatment team consists of the medical director, registered nurse, clinicians, and recovery advocates. Our staff members bring a diverse set of backgrounds and skills sets to the program. They go through an extensive orientation process in which they receive formal training on adolescent development, CPR, crisis intervention techniques, and cultural diversity. On-site lab testing and medication management are provided to help clients maintain abstinence while recovering from a substance use disorder.
