Icon Mental Health
Individual therapy

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.

Icon Hands Heart
Family therapy

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.

Icon Chat Heart
Group therapy

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.

Icon Dual Diagnosis

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.

Age-Specific Care

We are age-specific, not gender-specific. We focus on the unique circumstances that teens and young adults face.

Evidence-Based Therapy

We only use treatment interventions that have been scientifically proven to provide consistent, lasting recovery.

Small Group Sizes

You are not a number, that’s why we provide a comfortable setting where your voice can be heard.

Individualized Treatment Plans

No one person is the same, and neither is their recovery journey. Your treatment program will be tailored to your unique needs.

Academic and Vocational Support

We want clients to get the most out of life, which means doing their best in the classroom or at their job.

The Family Component

Recovery involves the entire family, so we provide support for the whole family system.

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 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.

Sandstone Care works with teens and young adults who are struggling with substance use, co-occurring mental health disorders, and mental health primary needs through our Center for Depression, Trauma and Anxiety.

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.

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.
