Benefits of Evidence-Based Therapy

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, so 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.

The Continuum of Care

Care for wherever you are in your journey.

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.

Family Counseling

Family involvement is critical to a strong foundation.

This is why we require parents to be involved in our program.

We believe that the key to successful recovery is involving the family in treatment. Sandstone helps families resolve conflicts, cope with stressors, and re-establish fractured relationships.

Find out how we hold all family members accountable and develop positive relationships within families to support treatment and recovery.

Ask us anything

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. Typically the Young Adult IOP program lasts for 8 to 12 weeks.

We collect phones during programming only, otherwise everyone living in one of our houses has access to their devices.

The teens and young adults at Sandstone Care are bright and creative spirits who have been impacted by a variety of mental health issues. Typically, they are struggling with, or have experienced, anxiety, depression, trauma, and/or substance use. Individuals with a history of violence, are actively suicidal or psychotic, that have severe and persistent mental illness such as schizophrenia, or that exhibit behavioral issues that would disrupt the treatment milieu are not appropriate for Sandstone Care. Each client is carefully screened by the admissions team and the Program Director, and if needed, the Executive Clinical Director and Medical Director for appropriateness.

No. We believe in starting with many privileges and only revoking access if necessary, so we do not have a blackout period when you begin our program.

Yes. We have a teen track, which is for teens ages 13-18 (The 18 year old would need to still be in high school, otherwise they would be considered a young adult), and a young adult track for individuals ages 18-30.

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.

Knowing what level of care would be best for you is tricky! If you experience withdrawal symptoms when you attempt to discontinue use, it is more than likely you would benefit from detox. However, the best way to know whether or not you would benefit from medical detox is to get a professional opinion. Our trained admissions team would be happy to speak with you and advise you on next steps.
