An essential ingredient for the recovery from a mental illness or substance use disorder is the help of a support system at home. Families and friends are crucial for making or breaking an effective treatment for addictions and other behavioral health problems. As such, Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego involves families from the beginning to end of treatment.
Our program is designed to allow parents and their children to develop a new relationship. We believe that dealing effectively with mental health disorders and substance abuse problems can only happen when the family is in a mutually safe and supportive environment.
The effects of addiction extend beyond the person struggling with the problem; addiction strains relationships with friends and family members as well. Family is a vital piece of the addiction puzzle, and familial support is often critical to the recovery of the person struggling with the addiction. Because family involvement is key to the success of the overall program for adolescents, we offer a family program.
Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego provides many ways for families to stay involved with their teen’s treatment program. One major way is through our family program, which provides important methods for maintaining recovery after treatment. The Sovereign Health adolescent program offers treatment programs to adolescents for mental health, substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.
Family influence on addiction
Improperly handling teens with a behavioral health disorder increases their risk of relapse and can adversely affect parents as well. Frustration and exhaustion from an inability to properly deal with a child’s issues can lead family members to develop mental health or substance abuse issues of their own, adding even more unhealthy behavior into the cycle. Our family therapy programs teach families how to interact in more positive and beneficial ways, eliminating damaging behavioral patterns and strengthening relationships.
Sovereign Health is dedicated not only to a high standard of care but to providing a safe and comfortable environment for our patients, staff and visitors. We maintain this harmony with the assistance of everyone involved in our behavioral health care programs.
Safe and harmonious treatment
The Family Welcome Packet provides valuable information on our adolescent program. It outlines the treatment process from the time of admission all the way to release.

We do this to help relieve the stress and worry that families normally go through while their loved one is in treatment.
