As Embark’s Clinical Director Ken’s mission is to shape the Embark experience in a way that creates an opportunity for healing, restoration and hope for each teen and their family.

How Our Residential Treatment Can Help

For youths struggling with school refusal, anxiety, depression, substance use, suicidal ideation (suicidal thoughts), and other mental health issues, the earlier they’re diagnosed, the more effective inpatient treatment can be. Identifying behaviors and symptoms early on and getting help, including specialized care, can prevent further and more severe problems from developing as your child enters adulthood.

We Serve Families Across the Country

Our residential care typically lasts around 90 days. Adolescents and teens best suited for 24-hours care at our residential treatment center often come to our Independence, Missouri, location from another program or an unsuccessful living environment. At our trusted facility, we provide empathetic and supportive inpatient treatment so your child can learn how to better manage daily life tasks and make healthy lifestyle changes.
