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.

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.

There are a variety of different effective approaches and strategies for providing treatment for substance abuse problems.

Early intervention can help reduce the harm of substances, reduce risk behaviors, and improve health and social function.

The most common and effective interventions for substance abuse have been shown to include a form of behavioral therapy.

Examples of behavioral therapies can include Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

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.

The approach to young adult addiction treatment is different for each individual. Treatment plans are customized to fit a young adult’s specific needs.

Sober living homes may be suitable for young adults who are in early recovery and need a safe and supportive environment.

Some may find it more beneficial to go home after treatment.
