CBT is a goal-oriented therapy that helps teens understand the link between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. By identifying and challenging negative thought patterns, CBT empowers teens to develop healthier behaviors and coping mechanisms.

DBT equips teens with skills to regulate emotions, improve interpersonal relationships, and cultivate mindfulness. This therapy is particularly effective for managing self-harm behaviors and emotional instability.

In individual therapy, teens work one-on-one with a trained therapist to explore their feelings, beliefs, and behaviors. The therapist provides a safe and confidential space for teens to express their struggles and work toward personal growth and understanding.

Family involvement is crucial in a teen’s recovery process. Family therapy strengthens family bonds and improves communication, enabling the family to function more effectively and support the teen’s recovery.
