Outpatient Treatment for Teens
Spring Mountain Treatment Center offers an Intensive Outpatient Program for teens age 12 to 17 who may be experiencing behavioral and substance use issues, but do not require the supervision and 24-hour care of an inpatient program. The program is designed for patients who need more specialized care than is usually offered in most traditional outpatient clinics but aren’t necessarily a danger to themselves or others. Most find that their problems are causing significant disruptions to school, work, and relationships with friends and family. Patients issues and disorders may include:
- Bipolar disorder
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or attention deficit disorder (ADD)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Post-traumatic stress
- Other mood disorders
Program components can include:
- Anger management techniques
- Accepting personal responsibility
- Improving communication, coping and conflict resolution skills
- Learning relapse prevention skills
SUPPORT FOR FAMILIES
We believe that family involvement is always important to recovery, especially when treating teens. While treatment focuses on the patient as an individual, we also explore the effects of behavioral problems and/or substance use on the family. Parents can learn healthy ways to handle frustration, guilt, apathy and how to improve communication skills, set limits and identify negative family patterns.
We address underlying issues through supportive therapy, medication management and education in a caring environment. Each patient is an individual, so we design the course of treatment based on the patient’s needs and concerns. Adolescent IOP meets Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
