After admission, a multi-disciplinary team then conducts a face-to-face
of your teen in order to develop a customized, solution-focused treatment plan that addresses their history, current symptoms, and individual goals.
Evolve offers evidence-based treatment to adolescents 12-17 struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder, aggression, self-harming behaviors, suicidal ideation, and other mental health/behavioral issues. Our residential treatment center in Southern California offers a warm, accepting environment where teens can stabilize and learn practical ways to improve their emotion regulation, impulse control, and distress tolerance skills. Our focus is on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) & Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) integrated with experiential therapies (equine therapy, art, surfing, music, drama, yoga, fitness, and more). Adolescents participate in individual/family therapy multiple times a week, psychiatry sessions weekly, and daily groups on DBT Skills Training, Anger Management, Relapse Prevention, and Seeking Safety. Families from out-of-state participate in family therapy remotely. We also provide daily academic support to help your child stay on track with school. Our program’s emphasis on safety, individual attention, and evidence-based care are reasons why families from all over the country choose to travel to Evolve.
