Helping teens with their mental health shouldn’t stop at therapy. During adolescence, they experience rapid physical, spiritual, and emotional changes as well. Supporting every aspect of their well-being is our mission at Family First. We incorporate wellness therapy programming and take a holistic approach to long-term health and happiness.
With more than 120 years of combined clinical experience, our team of professionals incorporates a wide range of evidence-based and holistic methods into our adolescent therapy programs. We also provide academic, nutritional, and exercise programs to support the physical and intellectual well-being of the adolescent boys aged 13-18 that we treat.

Wellness Therapy for Adolescents
Wellness therapy focuses on promoting overall well-being and balance by addressing physical, spiritual, emotional, and intellectual needs. It involves a variety of practices such as mindfulness, yoga, meditation, healthy eating habits, and physical exercise.
We believe that taking a holistic approach to our adolescent therapy programming is crucial for helping teens achieve long-term health and happiness. The quick changes brought on by adolescence often lead to challenging behaviors, like lashing out, screen addiction, and substance use. We know these behaviors aren’t the root issues, which is why we work with teens to explore their underlying emotional and mental health.
Our Approach to Adolescent Wellness Therapy
Teens at our center don’t just sit in therapy with a counselor or in groups. When they stay at our residential treatment center in South Florida, teens engage in their healing plans and receive support for every aspect of their lives, including:
- Nutrition – Chef-catered meals are created specifically to support adolescent growth and development.
- Exercise – CrossFit classes with licensed trainers at our gym promote physical fitness and release endorphins.
- Academics – Our educational programming doesn’t just help teens catch up or stay on track; it enables them to thrive academically and prepares them for college or career tracks.
- Experiences – Deep-sea fishing, paddleboarding, beach trips, and other activities are just a few of the many fun ways we help teens explore their potential life purpose, develop goals, and experience joy in healthy ways.
- Mindfulness practice – Guided meditation, yoga, and other mindfulness practices help teens connect to their inner selves, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve emotional regulation.
The well-rounded approach to wellness therapy programming at Family First allows us to provide comprehensive support for teens struggling with mental health issues. We understand that each teen’s needs are unique, which is why we tailor therapy plans to address their specific challenges and goals.
