Teen Mental Health and Addiction Treatment

Evolve offers evidence-based treatment to adolescents 12-17 struggling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, self-harm or high-risk behaviors, suicidal ideation, and other mental health/behavioral issues. Our residential treatment center in Los Angeles offers a warm, accepting environment where teens can stabilize and learn practical ways to improve their emotion regulation, impulse control, and distress tolerance skills. Teens 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. Our focus is on Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy integrated with experiential therapies (equine-assisted therapy, art, surfing, music, drama, yoga, fitness, and more). 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.

Licensed, Highly Qualified Treatment Team

Accredited by CARF and the Joint Commission, Evolve’s top-rated residential treatment centers are ideal for teens stepping down from inpatient hospitalization, or as a step-up option for teens who need more support than provided by local outpatient programs. Evolve treats teens—and teens only. It’s research-proven that adolescents have specific clinical needs that differ from other age groups. Our treatment team (which includes a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist, licensed therapists, on-site nurses, counselors and 24-hour support staff) have years of experience in adolescent treatment, and are available for skills-coaching and crisis support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A specialty program like ours can be a safer experience and promote better recovery for your child than other programs which also include adults. Our residential treatment center in Southern California maintains one of the highest ratios in teen treatment centers across the nation.

Understanding Admissions and Insurance

Evolve’s teen residential treatment center is located in a quiet residential neighborhood of L.A. To ensure that Evolve will be able to help your adolescent, we conduct a thorough clinical assessment prior to admission and gather previous medical records as needed. This information is reviewed by our licensed Admissions Clinician for clearance to admit. After admission, a multi-disciplinary team then conducts a face-to-face evaluation of your teen in order to develop a customized, solution-focused treatment plan that addresses their history, current symptoms, and individual goals. This plan is continuously evaluated and adjusted by the treatment team based on treatment progress. Like all of our residential treatment centers, our home in Southern California is comfortable and well-appointed, featuring a swimming pool, fully-equipped gym, huge backyard with full-size sports courts, and an onsite chef. To determine whether Evolve is a good fit for your teen, call our Admissions Team. We accept most private insurance and can work with your insurance company to help you maximize your benefits.
