With over decades of collective experience, Thrive Teen was created to introduce early intervention to those suffering from mental health issues. Had the young adults treated by Thrive Teen received early intervention and mental health services at an earlier age, they might not have continued on to endure significant negative consequences as adults, such as dropping out of high school or college, legal issues and loss of interpersonal relationships. Many teens are suffering from various mental health struggles that with appropriate attention and support, can avoid further dysfunction and inability to finish high school or college. Thrive Teen’s admissions process includes an assessment of the overall physical health, mental health, and behavioral health issues.
Our teen treatment center includes care intended to build on the natural supports, strengths, resiliencies, and perspectives of the individual, focusing on the specific mental health needs and goals of the client. The clinical team at Thrive Teen treatment center in Los Angeles combines this with a complete focus on protecting the safety, autonomy, and privacy of the patient, so that an adolescent may safely seek treatment.
The Los Angeles treatment center at Thrive Teen differentiates itself by inviting families to join the treatment process. Through weekly family therapy, parent support groups and multi-family group, we shift the family system by improving family communication, boundaries, personal responsibility for behavior, and the healthy processing of any family issues. Treating the whole family teaches everyone the roles they play in maintaining the problem, how to support one another, and that they can emerge from treatment stronger than they were before.
