An opportunity to learn how to improve mental health

Are you a parent or guardian of a 12- to 17-year-old with mental health challenges in Kuna, Idaho? If so, Avery’s House is here to help. Our nearby Boise treatment center is a nurturing and therapeutic environment that feels more like a home than a hospital. Our team of highly qualified, deeply compassionate mental health professionals is committed to your child’s well-being.  We offer more than therapy. We also teach crucial life skills, such as stress management, effective communication, and decision-making. Through hands-on activities, group sessions, and individual coaching, we ensure your teenager develops the tools they need for a fulfilling life.

Lasting change requires a blend of support and accountability

At Avery’s House, we not only help teens learn vital coping strategies but also empower them to take responsibility for their mental well-being. Our program includes the following:

Family Involvement

  • Family involvement is important throughout the recovery process, so we make it easy by scheduling family therapy sessions and providing you regular updates on how your teen is progressing. And when your teen returns home, we don’t just wave goodbye. We help develop a solid aftercare plan to ensure a smooth transition.

Academic Support

  • Because we know how crucial a good education is for your teen’s future, we provide robust academic support, helping your child master the strategies they need to stay on track with their studies. While they’re working on their mental well-being, you can rest easy knowing their education is in good hands.

Medication Management

  • We know that when it comes to mental health, there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why we offer customized medication plans for those who need them. We monitor your teen’s response to medication closely, tweaking as needed. It’s about giving each teen the right support, at the right time, in the right way.
