Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego’s adolescent behavioral health facility is a cheerful, therapeutic environment designed just for teens ages 12 to 17.
Many times, teens just need extra support from family, friends and treatment providers to get through the challenges of adolescence. Other times, more significant conditions can be better managed through early identification. Mental illness and substance use disorders are extremely common and often begin to cause symptoms during adolescence. Prompt and thorough treatment has been shown to optimize long-term outcomes.
Substance Use Disorders
Many of our patients have experimented with alcohol or drugs, and some became habitual users. The sooner substance use is treated in teens, the lower the risk of cognitive deficits, addiction, overdose and death. We specialize in the treatment of adolescent patients with substance use disorders, ranging from intermittent use to chemical dependency.
Mental Health and Dual Diagnosis
Our mental health programs treat male and female adolescents with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, behavioral addictions and other mental illnesses. Sometimes untreated mental health problems can lead to drug or alcohol use. Co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders are commonly referred to as dual diagnosis. The interplay between substance use and mental illness is very complex, but our expert treatment teams provide the therapy and support patients need to manage their behavior.
Our adolescent eating disorders program is open to young women ages 12 to 17 with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. Sometimes young women with eating disorders also have underlying or co-occurring mental health problems or substance use disorders as well At Sovereign Health, we identify and treat each condition concurrently as part of our thorough treatment process.
Our family-centered care is the cornerstone of adolescent treatment at Sovereign Health. Our expert teams at Rancho San Diego provide families the education and support they need to grow from their loved one’s treatment experience and new life in recovery.
