Benefits of Academic & Vocational Support

Our main goal is to help your teen succeed in all aspects of life. We want them to heal physically and mentally, but also to develop and set goals for themselves. Your child doesn’t have to be left behind just because they need treatment.

Recovery isn’t just getting off harmful substances. We go above and beyond to treat co-occurring disorders and to help your child develop skills that will allow them to fully integrate into all parts of life.

Whether it is Academic Support for those still in school or vocational support for our older clients, we have advisers that will assist in skill development, goal setting, and preparation.

Why Teens Need Academic and Vocational Support during Treatment

When a teen is in treatment for substance use disorders, addiction, mental health conditions, or co-occurring disorders, they may need help juggling their school work as well.

If your teen is in need of a residential level of care, they will be asked to leave their friends, family, and school behind to attend treatment in a recovery-focused environment.

For teens, life and school are hard enough of a struggle, but with academic and vocational support, you don’t have to worry about them falling behind while they try to recover. Your teen can fully focus on treatment and getting back to being themselves again.

How Sandstone Care Achieves the Primary Academic Goal for Teens

Our primary academic goal for teens is to attain a high school diploma and master secondary course material in preparation for post-secondary education.

This achievement is made possible by:

  • A disciplined approach to study
  • Attention to individual learning styles
  • Using evidence-based therapeutic practices to address the issues that are causing an individual to struggle academically.

The academic program provides support sessions in order to keep participants on track with their schooling and progress through the completion of higher education. Alongside you and your teen, our academic adviser develops a roadmap to guide each teen to achieve their defined goals.

Benefits of Evidence-Based Therapy

Evidence-based therapies (EBTs) use treatment modalities that have been proven effective through scientific research. They include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and more.

These modalities provide real, life-changing results that can help you get your life back on track.

Some additional benefits include:

Lasting Results

The American Psychological Association created the policies for EBTs using the best research available. Studies have shown that these therapy treatments lead to longer-lasting results.

Cost Effective

Since these kinds of treatments are scientifically proven to be more effective, the chances of relapse are less likely, which means less money spent on future treatments.

More Accountability for Therapists

EBTs require specialized training in the different kinds of therapies, which means you are guaranteed qualified, verified therapists are in charge of your care.

Clinically Effective

EBTs are safe and proven treatments, so you can feel confident that your recovery is not left up to chance. Your mental health assessments and preferences will determine which EBTs are used in their treatment plans.

How Vocational Achievement is Made Possible

Our vocational program was developed in order to allow participants to set their own goals of achieving their desired lifestyle, career, or profession.

The goals for each individual are chosen at the discretion of you and your teen. This promotes your teen’s commitment to achieving these goals.

Alongside you and your teen, our vocational adviser then develops a roadmap to guide your teen in achieving their set goals.

Throughout the program, we develop accountability and build confidence for each individual as we track the progress towards attaining the participant’s goals.

Upon completion of the program, we celebrate the short-term accomplishments of each individual and promote continued development of the long-term goals.
