Dedicated to excellence in providing behavioral health services to adolescents from ages 12 to 17, our Rancho San Diego facility treats teens with behavioral problems, mental health issues, addiction and eating disorders. While we provide rehab for teens, we also assist their families and provide one of the top adolescent mental health facilities in San Diego.

Our Rancho San Diego facility sits on 25 acres of mountainous landscape with greenbelts and trees surrounding the property. The campus is a perfect place for adolescent patients to recover in a safe, tranquil and rural location. Our professional staff provides 24/7 supervision of patients in a compassionate and therapeutic atmosphere.

Help for Behavioral Problems and Mental Health Issues

At Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego, we specialize in the treatment of many different behavioral problems and mental health issues that adolescents may face. Early diagnosis and treatment of adolescent mental illness has been shown to improve long-term outcomes. Some of the common problems we treat at our Rancho San Diego facility include:

  • Behavioral addictions and compulsions
  • Mood disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Oppositional-defiant disorder
  • Psychotic symptoms
  • Substance use disorders
  • Eating disorders

We offer different levels of care for our young patients, ranging from our residential treatment center, to our partial hospitalization program and our intensive outpatient program. Our individual treatment plans are tailored to meet the needs of each patient and his or her family.

Help For Drug and Alcohol Use

Teenagers are constantly testing boundaries and rules because it is part of their normal development. Parents naturally assume their children won’t get drawn into social circles that involve drugs and alcohol, but they do. Teens are good at concealing drug and alcohol use until they get into trouble or worse.

Early detection, detoxification and treatment are necessary for anyone with drug or alcohol use disorders, but especially for adolescents. Critical brain development continues until about age 25 and any substance use during that period will affect the brain. Substance use in adolescents is strongly associated with chemical dependency and addiction later in life.

Getting help for teen addiction can prevent academic and legal problems that can negatively affect the rest of the teen’s life. Even more importantly, drugs and alcohol put users at much greater risk of disability or death due to accidents, overdose and suicide – all of which can be prevented by treatment. Relationships with friends, family and teachers also benefit when the adolescent enters teen drug rehab early.

For lasting recovery, at Sovereign Health we identify and treat alcohol and drug use disorders as well as any underlying or co-occurring disorders requiring treatment. We provide early and aggressive cognitive therapy to rehabilitate any neurological damage caused by drug or alcohol use. Our lifestyle management helps teens form healthy lifestyle habits to prevent relapse as they learn about life in the sober adolescent community. Our rehab programs for young adults provide support to families throughout the treatment process as they learn how to support their loved one in recovery.

Eating Disorders

Our eating disorders program is open to adolescent girls with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. Our residential program consists of a 14-bed girls’ dormitory exclusively for patients with eating disorders. Skilled physicians, nurses, therapists and dietitians work closely together to help each patient restore a healthy weight and body image and to address and treat underlying mental health disorders.
