At Youth Care, we treat adolescents between the ages of 11 and 18 by utilizing comprehensive and professional therapeutic care. We strive to help promote change in adolescents that are struggling with problems such as depression, self-esteem issues, substance abuse and much more.
Not only do we open our doors to these types of adolescents, but we have also created a comfortable, home-like environment that allows them to apply their learned behaviors to a setting that they are not only currently used to, but also will likely be engaged in after they leave the program.
As we work with our adolescents, we ensure that we are providing a foundation built off of mutual respect. Therefore, we expect everyone involved in the program (students, therapists, staff members, etc.) to treat others as they would want to be treated to help uphold this ideology.
During their time spent at Youth Care, our students will learn the values of everyday things such as chores and to show respect for others. In addition, they will also participate in counseling designed to help them achieve goals that will aid in their positive development.
