Mental Health Resources for Professionals

It’s important to us at Ascend that our clients have an amazing team of providers to support them after treatment. We look for quality psychiatrists, psychologists, medical doctors, therapists, and other treatment professionals in all areas to refer our clients to upon discharge. Our mental health resources for professionals help them stay connected with other specialists in the mental health community.

There are also times when our admissions department receives calls from clients or families that we feel are not a good fit for the Ascend program. In these cases, we provide mental health therapy resources for families looking for specialists in their areas.

Supporting Your Child With a Mental Health or Substance Abuse Disorder

Ascend’s family program is a foundational part of the work we do. Providing mental health therapy resources to families before, throughout, and after treatment is essential for the continued wellbeing of the entire family system. Ascend offers tailored and comprehensive family programming to include not only parents, but siblings and other primary caregivers as well. You’re invited to attend alumni programming and ongoing parenting process meetings, skills sessions, and educational forums following your child’s discharge.
