Embark at Campbell FAQ

Outpatient therapy at our California location is a form of mental health treatment that can be performed alongside someone’s daily life. For those who have moderate mental health symptoms and a daily routine that is not negatively impacting their mental health, outpatient therapy may be a good option.

An outpatient visit at Embark at Campbell involves weekly sessions with one of our bay area therapists. On average, these visits can last anywhere from 1-5 hours a day, 12-20 hours per week, 4-6 days a week.

There are many benefits to outpatient treatment at Embark at Campbell. Our outpatient programs allow teens and young adults to benefit from current work and school schedules, support from friends and family, and a more affordable cost on average in comparison to most inpatient treatment options.

The goal of outpatient therapy at Embark at Campbell is to help teens and young adults overcome difficult mental health and substance abuse issues through a series of visits to our California outpatient clinics.

The main difference between inpatient and outpatient treatment is the treatment setting. Outpatient services provide a good option for teens and young adults who can make visits to one of our bay area therapists while living at home and maintaining their daily routine. Inpatient treatment is a good option for those that need dedicated 24-hour care in a hospital setting to overcome mental health and substance abuse issues.

The length of outpatient treatment depends on each teen or young adult’s particular needs. On average, outpatient treatment at our Campbell clinic can last from 3 months to 1 year. If a deeper level of treatment is needed, adolescents can step up a level in care to an inpatient treatment program near them.

Embark in Campbell has been amazing for my family! We had tried different programs for our child and all but lost hope for them to connect and engage in therapy. Everyone we met has been so kind and supportive, and our kid has really started to open up with the other kids in the group, and even with us at home. They don’t just work with our child, but also with us in weekly family therapy which has helped us understand better ways to communicate and behave to support them. For anyone struggling with their teens behaviors or emotions, I would definitely recommend reaching out to Embark!

This place is amazing. The kindness and caring from all the staff is beyond what anyone could expect from a treatment facility. They go above and beyond to help their clients by giving them the necessary tools and support. What I found most remarkable about this team of caregivers is that from the moment we walked in the door, they made us feel like we mattered. The compassion shows with their interactions with clients AND their families. If you need help and if you need to know you matter, this is the right place for you. Compassion, empathy, and support are the true cornerstone to making recovery from mental health issues successful, and every member of the staff at Embark has all those attributes. We feel very fortunate to have found them!!!

The team at Embark has exceeded our expectations.We sought care for our teen from many other programs in the South Bay and they don’t come close to what the Embark team offered to our child.Our teen reports that for the first time, in a long time, they felt heard by their therapist and respected.There’s simply no better program.

I’ve been very impressed with the depth and breadth of the clinical expertise, friendliness of the staff, and the results of treating numerous mental health issues of our community’s troubled teens. I highly recommend all families of troubled teens take advantage of the quality of care at Embark

I visited Embark in my capacity as a Head of School for a local private school. I was immediately impressed with their beautiful facility, which I feel confident would put teens and parents at ease. They also have two adorable therapy dogs who are a pleasure! I've met with several different administrators at this new Campbell location and have been impressed with their background and dedication to helping families. In a time when finding mental health services can be a real challenge, I'm so glad Embark opened in our area - I would not hesitate to refer one of my families to them.
