Young men face more mental health challenges today than ever before. At our center in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, we focus on treating the most common and complex issues affecting boys aged 13–18. Since opening in 2014, we’ve helped hundreds of teens and their families find meaningful, lasting healing. When you learn about Family First Adolescent Services, you’ll discover that we are dedicated to connecting with our teens.

Our team views behavioral issues as symptomatic, with our clinical approach is designed to address the underlying issues that have been driving these problematic behaviors at a core level. 

Our Purpose and Promise

We are Family First. It’s not just our name; it’s our culture, philosophy, and driving clinical principle. One of the most fundamental challenges in working with adolescents is the role of family. No longer a child and not yet an adult, the adolescent stage of development creates tension unique to the family system. That’s why when we say, “The entire family is our client,” we make it our purpose and promise.

Your teen is invited into our family, where we provide a safe, nurturing environment for healing to occur. While in treatment, your son will be an empowered Family First resident while we help address healing back home, as well. As soon as treatment is complete, your entire family will be invited to participate in our alumni and aftercare program, remaining connected as a part of our ever-growing extended community.

The Family First Team

Family First is run by a team with more than 120 years of clinical experience. With a staff-to-client ratio of 3:1, each teen at our treatment center receives the care, attention, and support they need to make lasting changes.

We know that connecting with adolescents requires a few key things:

  • Understanding adolescence – Connecting with the idea that this is a period of renegotiation between what teens think of as attachment and authenticity
  • Staying curious – Asking questions and guiding teens below the surface level of their mental health to address what is truly impacting them
  • Building self-awareness – Looking inward to better understand how we think, feel, and react to challenges so we can grow as providers

From our intake coordinators to our CEO, we are dedicated to helping young men discover a path they can take pride in. Learn more about the Family First Adolescent Services team by reading our bios.

Since we are located in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, your son will have access to sun, sand, and water that make treatment feel more inviting. He’ll have the opportunity to paddleboard with our adventure therapists, engage in equine therapy, and participate in other fun activities while enjoying the beautiful weather.
