Compassionate Treatment for Teens and Young Adults
ABOUT OUR TREATMENT
Intensive Outpatient Treatment for Teens
An intensive outpatient program is a specialized therapeutic program designed to support teens struggling with complex mental health or behavioral issues. Our structured and compassionate environment allows young adults to receive expert guidance and treatment from dedicated professionals, while still maintaining their daily routine at home and school. By providing a secure and encouraging space, Amae empowers teens to develop essential coping skills and emotional resilience, ultimately fostering a healthier, more balanced life for both them and their families.
Why Engage in Care at Amae?
ROBUST CLINICAL MODEL
At Amae, we address the root causes of anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and co-occurring problems like substance abuse and self-harm. Our program is specifically designed to support individuals during critical developmental periods as they face the challenges of adolescence. We develop individualized treatment plans that address each young adult’s unique biological, psychological, and social factors.
HEALING THE WHOLE FAMILY
At Amae, we understand that family involvement is crucial for achieving lasting recovery. Our treatment philosophy emphasizes the importance of cultivating genuine connections with oneself and others, and focuses on repairing any disruptions in the relationships between young adults and their parents. In our outpatient programs for teenagers, we guide them in developing self-compassion, resilience, healthy coping skills, and stronger, more trusting relationships with their parents and peers.
“Amae combines the power of human relationships with advances in health science to promote growth and foster healing for adolescents and their families.”
