A caring, home-like atmosphere

Experienced adolescent mental health professionals

Learn skills crucial for psychological wellness

At Avery’s House, we know that every teenager is unique, with their own life story, challenges, and strengths. That’s why our programs for troubled teens are meticulously designed to meet the individual needs of each young person in our care. Our team of skilled adolescent mental health professionals brings in-depth knowledge, empathy, and understanding to their roles. This combination of expertise and genuine care builds trust, making it easier for teens to share thoughts and feelings openly.

Factors that ensure a successful recovery journey 

Many programs for troubled youth fall short because they leave out elements crucial to a teen’s successful treatment. Without these, it can be difficult for adolescents to overcome mental health challenges. At Avery’s House, we don’t make this mistake. We’ve integrated three essential components into our treatment approach, significantly enhancing the likelihood of successful recovery:

Family Involvement

  • We encourage family participation in treatment because we recognize its pivotal role in recovery. Our approach includes family therapy sessions, frequent progress updates, and meticulous aftercare planning. Aftercare helps ensure that your teen’s transition back to everyday life goes smoothly.

Academic Support

  • We offer comprehensive educational support, keeping teens on track academically throughout their 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 overwhelm them.

Medication Management

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

Director of Community Relations

In our troubled teen programs, we offer comprehensive clinical support to help Sun Valley adolescents overcome 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 Sun Valley teens as possible, some conditions fall outside our scope. We aren’t able to treat adolescents with a history of arson or other serious crimes. Also, our programs are not a good fit for those struggling with heavy substance abuse, highly aggressive behaviors, significant sexual issues, or other extreme diagnoses.
