Why Should Behavioral and Mental Health Treatment Be Teen-Focused?
Teens often share that something in life “isn’t fair,” and most adults are quick to brush this off, but when it comes to their medical, emotional, and mental health, teens are right!
Today’s teen culture is nothing like it was 40, 30, or even 10 years ago. So why should their mental and behavioral healthcare be the same? Why are providers pursuing standard or adult-level treatment plans without targeted support for the modern teen experience?
The reality is, it’s time to change the industry standard. And that’s what we’ve set out to accomplish at BasePoint Academy.
We’re committed to going against the status quo of adolescent treatment to facilitate positive and lasting patient outcomes. We’re dedicated to providing patient-centered and holistic care that sets our teens up for a lifetime of successes, stabilization, and resiliency.
At BPA, we promise to treat each teen with respect and compassion while providing a safe and healing environment that allows teens to truly be seen, heard, and supported. And our Resiliency Program is about equipping teens with strategic skills to establish lasting change through an innovative treatment approach.
