If you’re in the Sun Valley area and caring for a troubled teen, you know how difficult it can be to find treatment.  At Avery’s House, we provide a specialized alternative to traditional group homes. Recognizing that each young person in our care is unique—with their own story and struggles—we’re committed to providing the highly individualized care so crucial to mental health recovery.

Our residential home for teens near Sun Valley is an ideal choice if your child…

  • Would benefit from one-on-one attention from a team of dedicated therapists and clinicians
  • Recently finished an inpatient or hospital-based psychiatric stabilization program
  • Tried outpatient programs, such as PHP or IOP, but needs more structure and support
  • Is seeking a change from their usual surroundings of home, school, or social circles to better focus on recovery

What is a group home for teens?

A group home is a residential facility providing a supportive and structured environment for teens who can’t stay with their families. In these facilities, adolescents learn essential life skills, such as forging healthy relationships, managing time, and communicating effectively. 

These homes may operate under state authority or be privately owned. They may be boys-only, girls-only, or co-ed. The quality of care in these homes—whether state-run or privately managed—differs widely.

Limitations of traditional youth group homes

While most traditional group homes are good at providing a stable environment, they’re less prepared to help teens with severe issues. The reasons include 

  • Lack of Specialized Care: While all group homes offer basic care and therapy, they generally lack the specialized resources required for effectively treating severe mental health or behavioral conditions.
  • Less Individual Attention: The high client-to-staff ratios in most facilities don’t allow for the intensive, one-on-one care necessary to treat adolescents with more complex issues.
  • Limited Educational Support: Most group homes don’t provide sufficient academic resources, so participating students risk falling behind in school.
  • Basic Life Skills Training: While basic life skills are part of most group home curricula, these facilities don’t provide the in-depth training needed by teens with more profound challenges.

As you can see, traditional group homes fall short when it comes to treating the needs of teens with severe mental health and behavioral problems. If this is an issue you’re struggling with, there’s a better solution: specialized residential treatment centers like Avery’s House.
