Rancho San Diego’s treatment team consists of a number of medical and mental health care professionals who provide highly compassionate care, treatment, support and guidance to youths while they receive treatment for mental disorders.

Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego’s multidisciplinary mental health treatment team consists of:

  • Psychiatrist

  • Clinicians
  • Substance abuse counselors
  • Clinical concierge

  • Patient advocates

All aspects of an adolescent’s physical and mental health and well-being are taken into account during the admissions process and incorporated into each youth’s treatment program, as part of our holistic treatment approach. That is why the multidisciplinary treatment team at Rancho San Diego provides comprehensive medical, substance abuse, psychological and biopsychosocial evaluations as part of the admissions process.

Comprehensive assessments are conducted as part of the admissions process to gain a thorough understanding of the teen’s current situation, symptoms and co-occurring issues (e.g., sexual assault, parental divorce, sleep problems, self-harm, etc.), and to determine from what he or she will benefit most while in treatment.

Research suggests that adolescents receive the most benefit from treatment when they have individualized treatment programs. The clinical treatment professionals at Rancho San Diego not only utilize the comprehensive assessments during intake to diagnose the primary mental disorder and any comorbid medical conditions and/or substance use disorders, they also use them to tailor and individualize treatment according to that student’s particular needs.

Mental Health Program

Adolescents who receive mental health treatment at Sovereign Health’s Rancho San Diego facility receive evidence-based, experiential and complementary treatments from a person-centered and strengths-based approach. Adolescents benefit from receiving education, skills training and peer support from group therapy sessions.

Individual therapy sessions involve one-on-one sessions with the student’s primary therapist, offered once or twice per week. Some of the evidence-based, complementary and experiential treatments provided to adolescents in the Mental Health Program include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Play therapy
  • Solution focused therapy (SFT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills
  • Anger management
  • Stress reduction skills
  • Grief counseling
  • Neurofeedback
  • Equine therapy

Family members are also encouraged to participate in family therapy and weekly family groups as well as an Intensive Family Program that is offered once a month. Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego offers these family accommodations to ensure that parents and family members are actively involved in every step of the adolescent’s treatment and recovery.

Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego’s Mental Health Program strives to help teens learn how to manage their symptoms, stress and anger to keep symptoms manageable. In addition, the program educates teens so they will know in the future when they need to seek help. Education provided during mental health treatment enhances the understanding of students, parents and other family members. That understanding is beneficial for everyone involved in the teen’s treatment.
