The goal of treatment services at Visions Adolescent Treatment Centers in Los Angeles and Malibu is to help the teens achieve a positive state of mental health, both in the short and long-term. To achieve that goal, Visions staff move beyond the immediate, inpatient treatment programs to encourage teens to become involved in community-based resources, including healthy peer groups.

Mental Health & Wellness

Mental health treatment is an ongoing, long-term process. We aim to help teens achieve lasting progress by combining immediate inpatient treatment with long-term involvement in social programs, community activities, peer groups, and more. We also work with a teen’s loved ones and friends to help them build and improve their support network while equipping each teen with the means to continue working on themselves as they mature into adulthood. Mental health treatment is a marathon, and a long-term vision is key.

Dual Diagnosis

We treat cases of dual diagnosis via a holistic approach, combining treatment modalities to target a teen’s drug use and their co-occurring disorder. We help a teen at every step of the way, from safely preparing them for rehab to working with them through the worst stages of withdrawal, targeting the issues contributing to their drug use and helping them find a variety of alternatives to better cope with their mental health, and involve their family in the long-term treatment and management of their dual diagnosis.
