We assess a teen’s developmental stage and create a unique treatment program based on their physiological needs. Our highly-credentialed clinical staff uses different therapy treatments that give teens the tools to build strong relationships, self-esteem, and a more stable home life.
Let’s address therapy treatment options for teens
Substance abuse, addiction, and mental health struggles affect a teen’s ability to function and enjoy life. There is a multitude of different treatment options available that can help teens and their families.
Help your teen build a stronger foundation.
We deliver evidence-based therapy treatment for teens in a number of areas.
After our comprehensive assessment, we develop an individualized treatment plan to meet each client’s needs. Rather than emphasize why an individual comes to Sandstone Care, we focus on the path forward. We rely on our clinical framework to help each client discover their own values and beliefs, strengths, and passions.
You’re looking at how the individual roles you play and the ways you relate to each other effect everyone in the family. In family systems therapy, your therapist’s job is to help family members build that system on interactions that work well for everyone within it. We include your family in each step of recovery, so you can build stronger and healthier relationships.
In group therapy, you’ll interact with people your own age who are experiencing the same struggles you are. You will build healthy friendships and see firsthand that you are not alone and you are not the only person who has struggled with mental health and substance use conditions.
When an individual is struggling with both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder, the two conditions are referred to as “co-occurring disorders,” or “dual diagnoses.” At Sandstone Care, we understand the importance of treating the whole person, which includes addressing co-occurring disorders concurrently with substance abuse and/or addiction.
We developed our evidence-based curriculum with the latest available research to address our clients’ deepest physical, mental, and emotional issues. It is our goal to reach the root of the substance use or addiction issue. We include the following therapies, assessments, and plans in our programs:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Somatic Symptom Assessment and Plan
Brain & Body Trauma Assessment and Plan
Weekly Organized Physical Activities
Nutritional Assessment and Plan
Sandstone ensures teens do not fall behind in school or at work during treatment by requiring participation in academic and vocational programs in conjunction with our therapeutic services. While at Sandstone Care, our fully dedicated academic and vocational adviser will empower each teenager to rekindle their motivation, develop confidence, set college and career goals, and foster the skills necessary for independent living.
Medication management involves diagnosing, treating, and preventing substance use and mental health conditions. Every teen is unique and requires a customized treatment program. Our clinical staff helps you become an expert in managing your treatment and medication. While not every individual needs medication, we help prepare and educate those who do.
Sandstone Care aims to drive positive lasting change in real people. We understand that you have a life, so we offer a more personal experience than you would find anywhere else.
Our commitment to our clients’ lasting success and recovery helps us continually exceed licensing standards of care throughout the industry.
“Clients have shown incredible outcomes after working with them and their team is knowledgeable, passionate, and always willing to find the best care and referrals for their clients.”

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 therapy is safe and consistent treatment, 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.
CLICC Framework for Success
Our unique CLICC Framework establishes five pillars of success for our clients. These five pillars allow our therapists to hone in on a teen’s strengths and identify any areas in their recovery process that are lacking. This individualized program methodology helps your teenager reach that critical breakthrough moment that is necessary in order to achieve a sustainable recovery.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Addiction and mental health often go hand-in-hand. Work on both at Sandstone.
Often teens struggling with drug and alcohol use also have underlying mental health or behavioral disorders such as depression, anxiety, or personality disorders. Our clinical team focuses on helping teens to identify and improve any underlying concerns, so they are fully prepared to address addiction from all directions.
Be seen. Be heard. Be valued.
We can’t change people. We can’t change families. But we can empower you with the tools, steps, and community you need for long-lasting change. Get started with our teen-specific programs.

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 a 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.
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 length of stay may vary. Navigate to one of our specific teen treatment programs to see the standard timeline for each.
Yes, we understand that many people who abuse drugs and alcohol also suffer from depression, anxiety, etc. So, we have a psychiatrist on staff who can diagnose co-occurring disorders and help address the underlying issues that often lead to substance abuse.
