Evolve Santa Barbara treats teens ages 12-17 struggling with mental health, addiction or behavioral issues. We specialize in adolescent depression, anxiety, trauma, ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, personality disorders, dual diagnoses, suicidality and other issues. Many of our teens have difficulty regulating emotions and are engaging in high-risk/self-harm behaviors. Our team of highly qualified, licensed clinicians and medical professionals utilize evidence-based approaches such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to teach teens practical skills for distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and improved impulse control. Through individual therapy, family therapy, group sessions, psychiatry, and experiential therapies (including art, music, yoga, fitness and more), your child will learn ways to manage stress, communicate appropriately, and lead a more fulfilled, productive life. Our programs are suited for teens who need a higher level of care than weekly psychotherapy, or for those looking for an appropriate transition from residential/inpatient treatment.
