At Destinations, we believe collaborative treatment is the most effective way to ensure your teen is on the road to recovery. Team members meet weekly to discuss the progress of each individual case and how each personalized treatment program is progressing. These meetings involve the individual and family therapist assigned to your case, as well as members of our psychiatry, nutrition, and educational staff. Each member of our clinical staff is required to hold a Master’s degree and must be registered with a professional board.
Your support staff is there to address the needs of your teen and develop a tailored treatment program, but success cannot happen without parental involvement. Parents turn to Destinations when an addiction or mental disorder begins to threaten their child’s safety or the safety of others. We can help your child cope and heal as an individual, but we need your help to heal the family. As parents, you will be required to attend meetings with support staff, as well as family education classes, weekly individual therapy and, in some cases, couples therapy. A teenager’s struggles can often leave mothers and fathers overcome with guilt or shame, but learning to forgive oneself is often the first step toward learning to be a parent again.
