We Offer Mental Health and Substance Use
Treatment for Teens and Young Adults

Your child often hears that their preteen, teen, and young adult years will be the best time of their lives. But for many, this critical period of emotional, mental, and social development can be stressful as they begin to figure out who they are and plan.

Mental health problems are common among youth and can make things like school, socializing, work and everyday life more difficult. In fact, one in five adolescents, ages 12-18, live with a mental health condition; and between 20-30% will have one major depressive episode before they reach adulthood. Half of all lifetime cases of mental disorders will first present by age 14 and 75% will present by age 24. This is why it is a critical time to find expert help and address any issues.
