“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.”

Trauma & PTSD Treatment

Trauma is the emotional response to a specific event like an accident, sexual abuse, or a natural disaster.

Attention disorders, such as ADHD, are marked by difficulty focusing, controlling impulsive behaviors, and over-activity.

Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment

Dual-Diagnosis & Treating Co-Occurring Disorders

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.

Benefits of Evidence-Based Therapy in Mental Health & Addiction Treatment

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:

Lasting Results

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.

Highest Quality Treatment

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.

Clinically Effective & Cost Effective

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.

More Accountability for Therapists

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.

Family Involvement is Critical to a Strong Foundation

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.

You Have Questions, We Have Answers

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 your teen’s unique needs and situation, as well as to determine how appropriate our program is for them 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 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:

  • Trying, and failing, to quit using on their own
  • Drug or alcohol use has become their first priority
  • Having difficulty maintaining relationships with loved ones, friends, and family
  • Abandoning school, work, or social activities in favor of substance use
  • Engaging in risky behaviors or acts of self-harm
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not using
  • Consistently using drugs or alcohol regardless of negative consequences or problems caused by substance use

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 your teen’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 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.
