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’ treatment philosophy to addressing complex issues relies on a multi-modal approach and team including family, previous treatment professionals, teachers, community experts, and Visions’ 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 adolescents’ specific needs with regard to mental health and/or substance abuse issues. At Visions, it is our treatment philosophy that effective outcomes of adolescents with any disorder involves a holistic approach to address their unique needs.
