Family First Adolescent Services is dedicated to providing specialized care for adolescent boys between 13 and 18 who are dealing with mental health concerns, behavioral issues, and substance use problems. Our boys treatment program specifically addresses the deep-rooted mental health issues that make navigating adolescence challenging.
Mental Health Support Designed for Teenage Boys
At Family First Adolescent Services, we understand that teenage boys require specialized care to help them overcome their mental health challenges. As they go through adolescence, young men experience a wide range of physical, emotional, and behavioral changes that can be difficult to navigate. These changes often lead to mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, and even substance abuse.
Living with unprocessed trauma and other distressing experiences can be a heavy burden for young boys, and without proper support, they may struggle to cope. Our specialized boys treatment program is designed to address these deep-rooted issues in a safe, secure space.
Our Residential Treatment Center for Adolescent Boys
At the heart of Family First is our residential treatment center, devised exclusively for adolescent boys. This center is a beacon of hope and healing, offering a secure and nurturing environment where boys can receive comprehensive care and support for their mental health and substance use issues. We believe in creating an atmosphere that fosters growth, recovery, and, ultimately, transformation.
During treatment, your son will stay at one of our safe, nurturing houses. He’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful weather of South Florida while receiving support from a personal care team that’s made up of:
- An individual therapist
- A family therapist
- An academic coordinator
- A case manager
- A program coordinator
He will also meet with a nurse daily to monitor his progress and check in with a psychiatric provider at least once a week. During therapy, he will be engaged in one-on-one, family, or small group settings consisting of six to 14 boys. Our experiential therapists help teens explore the area while connecting with themselves through paddleboarding, deep sea fishing, jumping at trampoline parks, and more.
How Our Residential Treatment Program for Teen Boys Addresses Mental Health
Our boys treatment program is rooted in evidence-based therapeutic approaches that tackle a wide spectrum of mental health issues. These include:
- Complex post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD)
- Problematic gaming
- Substance use
No matter what your son is dealing with, we can help. We have experience treating the most common and complex issues facing teen boys today. Our goal is to empower your son to gain control of his life, build self-esteem, develop healthy relationships, and cultivate long-lasting mental wellness.
Recognizing When Your Son Needs Help
As a parent, understanding when your son needs professional help is crucial. Some common signs of a deep-rooted mental health condition include:
- Persistent irritability
- A decline in academic performance
- Social withdrawal and isolation
- Extreme mood swings and unpredictable behavior
If you notice any of these signs, it may be time to consider seeking professional help for your son. At Family First, we are here to support both the parents and their child every step of the way toward healing and recovery.
