Sandstone Care provides a comprehensive, evidence-based treatment program exclusively for adolescents, young adults, and their families. By strictly focusing on younger clients, we believe we can achieve the highest rate of success because we address issues early on while clients are still in their developmental years. At Sandstone Care, we work with many of the members of the community to treat issues most effectively. We use a team-based approach, working with family members, teachers, counselors, previous treatment professionals, and other experts within the community.
Sandstone Care separates groups into two categories: (1) adolescent and teen males and females between the ages of 13 and 18 and (2) young male and female adults between the ages of 18 and 30. With the support of their family, it is common for adolescents and young adults to enter treatment involuntarily. It is our CLICC framework that allows us to connect with involuntary participants in order to garner their commitment to change.
