In treatment, adolescents must be approached differently than adults because of their unique developmental issues, contradictions in their values and belief systems, and environmental considerations (e.g., strong peer influences).
Visions’ multi-modal approach to treating complex issues relies on a team approach including family, previous treatment professionals, teachers, community experts and Visions’ team of unparalleled clinicians.
To ensure continued success, a plan of action must be set up for the adolescent’s future. Our individualized programming was developed in consideration of an adolescent’s specific needs with regard to mental health and/or substance abuse issues. It is the philosophy of Visions that the effective treatment of adolescents with any disorder involves a holistic approach to their unique needs.
