We help teens create lasting, positive change in their lives. We’re different than your typical health care provider.
AGE-SPECIFIC TEEN CARE
Our comprehensive and individualized methods can achieve the highest rate of success because we address issues while clients are still developing habits, forming opinions, finding passions, and forming connections.
“Our teen has been attending an intensive outpatient program for a little over a month. So far, each member of the staff we have met from the intake person to the therapists have been very kind, compassionate, and wonderful.”
We are age-specific, not gender-specific. We focus on the unique circumstances that teens and young adults face.
We only use treatment interventions that have been scientifically proven to provide consistent, lasting recovery.
You are not a number, that’s why we provide a comfortable setting where your voice can be heard.
No one person is the same, and neither is their recovery journey. Your treatment program will be tailored to your unique needs.
We want clients to get the most out of life, which means doing their best in the classroom or at their job.
Recovery involves the entire family, so we provide support for the whole family system.
Our commitment to our clients’ lasting success and recovery helps us continually exceed licensing standards of care throughout the industry.

Learn more about the different levels of care we offer for teens at different stages of recovery.
Marijuana has become a way to self-medicate for underlying issues and it’s easy to become dependent on its use.
Studies have found that binge drinking & heavy alcohol use are problematic for young people.
Opioid misuse occurs when a person uses heroin or misuses prescription pain relievers like hydrocodone, oxycodone, and morphine.
Commonly abused stimulants include cocaine, methamphetamines, and prescription stimulants, like Ritalin, Adderall, and Concerta.
Depression is more than just feeling down for a few days — symptoms are long lasting and can affect you in many ways.
Anxiety disorders are thought patterns of fear, dread, and uneasiness that affect other aspects of your life.
Not only are we experts in teen drug rehab, but we also believe in treating the whole person and have staff who are trained in identifying and treating mental health problems along with the addiction.
Treating the whole person, includes addressing co-occurring disorders concurrently with substance abuse and/or addiction.
Because there can be an overlap in symptoms between drug use and mental health disorders, it’s very important to accurately assess and treat both challenges together.
If not treated this way, recovery can be much more difficult, as treatment may only be focusing on one half of the problem.
Sandstone Care provides age-specific care for those who struggle with substance use, mental health, and co-occurring disorders. We have rehab centers and provide treatment services throughout the United States.
Daily programming & activities
Our evidence-based treatment approach and proven programming create a positive space for the development of healthy habits.
While our rehab programs vary based on the level of care, we strive to create an environment that best supports the needs of teens with mental health and substance use disorders. Move forward with teen drug recovery and mental health care treatments.
Become a healthier, happier person through fun and physical therapies, such as yoga, tai chi, hiking, and outdoor adventures.
Develop a greater sense of control and minimize family conflict by working with academic and vocational advisors who help create and support an individualized academic plan.
Be your true self and explore interests that best serve your well-being and development with a range of activities — from journaling to art therapy.
Build positive relationships based on real connections with friends and explore family dynamics through family counseling to better connect the entire family system.
EBTs are scientifically proven therapies that are guided by relevant data. Patient preferences are prioritized, which maximizes their options and adds flexibility to individual treatment plans. Evidence-based therapies, like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), are safe and consistent treatments, but most importantly, your recovery is not left up to chance.
Some additional benefits include:
The American Psychological Association created the policies for EBT using the best research available. Their studies have shown that these therapy treatments work due to the combination of clinical training and science.
Our licensed clinical staff is trained in therapy treatments that are proven to be effective. This means they had to learn and follow certain guidelines for how they provide care.
Since these kinds of treatments are scientifically proven to be effective, the chances of relapse are less likely. This means you’ll be able to save more money in the long run.
EBT requires specialized training in the different kinds of therapies. Treatment options aren’t based on the therapist’s mood, they are backed by training and scientific results.
Which is why we require parents to be involved in our program.
We believe that family involvement is integral and necessary for the successful recovery of our clients. A person exists within a family and should be treated within the context of the family.
Find out how we hold all family members accountable and develop positive relationships within families to support treatment and recovery.
The Continuum of Care
Access a full range of treatments for mental health and substance use disorders. Whether you need a safe transitional living community, inpatient care, or outpatient therapy, we have a program to help.
You’re not alone. We want to get to know you and begin building a genuine relationship with you ― the real you.
You should feel heard. To help, we listen to your story and ask questions to understand what you care about.
You are important and have value. Because you have value, you’re worth our time and our attention to help you move forward.
You should feel safe. Truth builds trust, so we always start with the truth — and there’s never shame in telling the truth. We won’t just tell you what you want to hear.
Your life and recovery are important. Our highly credentialed staff will be there to support you every step of the way.
Your best interest is our focus. Even if it means sending you to a different organization for help. We won’t put our interests before yours.
While parental involvement is critical, not everyone is connected to or able to involve parental figures. That’s okay. We’ll help you get the treatment you need.

IOP stands for “Intensive Outpatient Program”. IOP programs are most helpful for teens who have completed a higher level of care (such as residential treatment) and need to step down, and for teens who struggle with substance use or mental health concerns but want to limit interrupting school and work.
An assessment at Sandstone Care is simply a conversation. It includes one of our licensed therapists, the individual who is considering the program, and any of their family members that they feel supported by. The purpose of the assessment is to better understand the individual’s unique needs and situation, as well as to determine how appropriate our program is for you and which level of care is medically and clinically necessary. The assessment process typically happens in person at one of our offices and lasts around an hour and a half to two hours.
Our clinical team is made up of a group of highly qualified individuals who are all dedicated to helping teens and young adults reclaim their lives. This team includes medical doctors, psychiatrists, licensed therapists, family therapists, and teachers.
Realizing that you need help is a big step, but coming to that conclusion may take some time. There are several signs that getting help is necessary, such as struggling with mental health issues like depression or anxiety. Some other signs may include:
Teen Residential or inpatient treatment can be necessary in certain instances. We recommend completing a comprehensive clinical assessment with a licensed professional to help determine the appropriate level of care required.
The amount of treatment needed varies greatly and depends on one’s individual needs. At Sandstone Care, we believe in treating our clients as a whole person instead of just treating their substance use disorder or mental health disorders in isolation. Our program is individualized to meet those specific needs and as such, the length of stay may vary. Navigate to one of our specific teen treatment programs to see the standard timeline for each.
Our after-school teen intensive outpatient treatment offers up to 17 hours per week of clinical services including group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy sessions, academic and vocational support, and community activities.
Sandstone Care works with teens and young adults who are struggling with substance use, co-occurring mental health disorders, and mental health primary needs through our Center for Depression, Trauma and Anxiety.
Sandstone Care has certified teachers onsite at each of our locations to help support teens with schoolwork. That being said, we are not an accredited high school that they can graduate from. However, we do provide structured academic support as part of our program. This includes helping individuals through tutoring, homework assistance, college application prep, grade recovery, and educational mentoring. Our Teen IOP program is an after-school program designed to accommodate client’s school schedule to minimize disruptions.
The teens at Sandstone Care are bright and creative spirits who have been impacted by mental health issues. Typically, they are struggling with, or have experienced, anxiety, depression, trauma, and/or substance use. Teens with a history of violence, teens that are actively suicidal or psychotic, teens that have severe and persistent mental illness such as schizophrenia, or teens that exhibit behavioral issues that would disrupt the treatment milieu are not appropriate for Sandstone Care. Each teen is carefully screened by the admissions team and the Program Director, and if needed, the Executive Clinical Director and Medical Director for appropriateness.
