Leading Mental Health Clinic For Teens and Young Adults

As a young adult or teenager, life can be overwhelming, leaving you with crucial decisions and emotions that may make you feel anxious and isolated.

Through our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), we offer comprehensive mental health services in Arlington Heights, IL that are tailored to your needs, allowing you to focus on the goals that matter most to you.

Not only was the group supportive, but the support from the staff was amazing.

I initially came to Sandstone for IOP and it helped me get through a really though time in my life. I ended up staying through OP and I would recommend it to anyone that needs support with their mental health.
