A place for healing, recovery, and growth, Ascend Healthcare works with adolescents ages 12-17 who are suffering from substance abuse as well as psychological, behavioral, interpersonal, and emotional issues. Our residential treatment facility for teens offers a safe, warm, and accepting environment where teens can explore the complex issues associated with adolescence and learn adaptive coping strategies to support a happier, healthier life.
Inpatient Treatment at Ascend
Ascend is what is considered a short-term behavioral health residential facility, where the majority of our clients successfully transition home or to longer-term settings after 45-90 days with us. Because our teen treatment programs are incredibly small, our team can provide tailored treatment to each client and family based on their individual needs.
Both of our residential treatment facilities for teens are located in Encino, CA and have significant staffing crossovers that ensure each center feels like a home. You’ll also find that our facilities offer unique amenities for your child, including a private chef, basketball court, pool, jacuzzi, and gardening spaces for horticultural work. Magnolia House even has a tennis court!
Every client gets a queen bed and shares a room with one other teen that’s in our program.
Residential Treatment Program at Empress
The Empress House residential treatment facility for teens is exclusively for teens that are dealing with substance abuse disorders and the underlying mental health conditions that drove them to these unhealthy coping mechanisms. There is currently no crossover of clients between the two facilities.
Residential Treatment Program at Magnolia
Magnolia House is a stand-alone mental and behavioral health residential facility that deals with teens’ negative expressions of their issues. While we treat a number of mental disorders at this facility — from depression and anxiety to trauma-related disorders and gender dysphoria — there are no substance abuse patients here. This residential treatment program for teens is also well-suited for those who identify with the LGBTQ+ community.
About Our Residential Treatment Facility for Teens
Our philosophy utilizes both evidence-based and experiential therapeutic modalities to expose each adolescent to a multitude of treatment experiences and opportunities. The goal is to expand their ability to process emotions and teach them the necessary tools required to deal with whatever life has in store for them. Ascend offers individual psychotherapy, family therapy, psychiatric assessment and medication management, group therapies, and 24-hour care and supervision.
Teens receive individualized therapy a minimum of twice a week, group therapy daily, family therapy weekly, and group family therapy bi-weekly.`1 We know that every teen in our care has different needs and goals for treatment, so we include a custom-tailored program of experiential therapies to complement their individualized therapeutic program. Teens are also accompanied offsite for weekly support groups to build a network of recovery which affirms positive social skills, reinforces a feeling of community, and normalizes the therapeutic process.
Experiential Treatment Programs
We want your teen to have fun and re-experience life in meaningful ways, so our residential treatment facility for teens offers programs that are meant to promote further growth within your teen’s peer group. Some of the experiential therapies we utilize in our residential treatment center in California range from art therapy and gardening to meditation and somatic experiencing.
Everyone who enters our program can weigh in on which therapy programs interest them most. With information on their preferences, we do even more to customize your child’s experience.
