Expert adolescent mental health professionals

Opportunities to learn skills essential to mental well-being

At Avery’s House, we know that every teenager we care for is unique, bringing their own stories, challenges, and strengths. With this in mind, we ensure that our programs for troubled youth meet the precise needs of each young person we serve. Our team of adolescent mental health experts not only has in-depth knowledge but also deep empathy and understanding. This combination of expertise and genuine compassion build trust, helping teens feel comfortable about opening up to share thoughts and feelings.

Factors that ensure a successful recovery journey 

Some troubled youth programs miss the mark because they leave out elements crucial for treatment success. Without them, it can be extraordinarily difficult for adolescents to overcome mental health challenges. At Avery’s House, we avoid this pitfall. We’ve woven three crucial components into treatment, boosting the chances of a successful recovery:

Family Involvement

  • Because we recognize its pivotal role in recovery, we encourage family participation in treatment. Our approach includes family therapy sessions, regular progress updates, and thoughtful aftercare planning. Aftercare facilitates your teen’s smooth return to everyday life.

Academic Support

  • We provide robust educational support to ensure teens don’t fall behind in school while in treatment. We help them complete their assignments on time, offer one-on-one tutoring, and show them how to manage their academic workload so it doesn’t become overwhelming.

Medication Management

  • Sometimes, therapy alone isn’t sufficient for teens struggling with mental health challenges, which is why we offer personalized medication management for those who need it. We ensure that each prescription is customized to the precise needs of each teen, accurately administered, and carefully monitored.

Director of Community Relations

In our programs for troubled youth, we provide clinical support that helps teens triumph over mental health challenges, including   

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Suicidal and self-harm thoughts
  • Bullying and victimization
  • ADHD and other attention difficulties
  • Substance use disorders
  • Trauma and adverse life experiences
  • Family and relationship problems

Note: While we want to help as many Idaho Falls teens as possible, some conditions fall outside our expertise. Unfortunately, we’re unable to treat adolescents with a history of arson or other serious crimes, nor can we help those with heavy substance abuse, aggressive behaviors, sexual issues, or other extreme diagnoses.
