Therapeutic Programs

“Exhausted” is often the best way to describe the condition of the parents and children we meet.

Parental “exhaustion” takes many forms

  • deteriorating communication with your spouse and other children
  • lack of ability to set and hold boundaries with your child
  • a feeling of anger at your child and sadness for him/her and the state of their circumstances

This exhaustion often leads to a general feeling of helplessness and failure in your role as a parent.

The children and young adults whom we serve have “exhausted” most of their options leaving them with:

  • destructive family relationships
  • dysfunctional school relationships
  • damaged work relationships
  • desire to self-medicate through a myriad of addictive behaviors, denials, or disengagement

Repeated failure, alienation and isolation have compromised the ability to organize and apply effort leaving them unable to generate support for their emotional, learning-based or psychiatric challenges.

Issues our clients face include:

  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Substance Abuse
  • Anger and Defiance
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Self-Esteem Issues
  • Eating Disorders
  • School Avoidance
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Self-injury
  • Suicidal Ideation
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Grief and Trauma

We understand this “exhaustion” very well, as professionals committed to providing possibilities for these young people and their families.  We build our relationships and provide informed, support and guidance with your best interests in mind.

We place our clients in environments that offer them the best chance to grow and develop skills and a mindset to take control and responsibility for themselves. We rely on the quality of the relationships we build. Our programs are staffed with professionals whom we know and visit regularly.

Our focus is not on finding “a fit”, but upon finding “the right fit” – one that is strength(s)-based and provides an effective and successful milieu and staff to address our clients’ needs.

A therapeutic setting is often the right place to rebuild strength and motivation and overcome “exhaustion.” These settings range from  transitional living programs to  hospital-based treatment programs.

See all the possibilities.
