Once your teen has completed their residential treatment program, they will have the education and tools they need to build resilience and live a higher quality of life. The journey doesn’t end with treatment; parents need to know how they can continue supporting their teen as they reintegrate into daily life.
Supporting a teen who has just undergone treatment for mental health or substance abuse is crucial for their successful transition back home and into the community. Here are steps families can take to provide effective support:
Our goal is to have family engagement create a bridge between residential treatment and the child’s return to the community. Planned activities throughout treatment provide opportunities for youth and their families to practice newly learned strategies, communication skills, and healthy coping mechanisms together. At designated stages of treatment, the child earns off-site passes to work with their family on building skills and achieving therapeutic goals together. Hallmark Youthcare continues to support our “graduates” to ensure they maintain the right course in life. Take advantage of our family support group and online resources to help your teen embrace their new normal.
