Insight Treatment Program offers teen rehab and parents support groups in our centers in Sherman Oaks and Pasadena. These groups are both process-oriented and psycho-educational, offering parents skills and support in dealing with teens that may be having problems with drug abuse, alcohol abuse, depression, low academic achievement and/or behavioral problems. Parents are also invited to attend Al-Anon meetings for parents at Insight in Sherman Oaks.
Parent support groups offer parents a way to learn as they interact with other parents who are addressing similar issues. Sometimes dealing with teen problems can seem overwhelming. Whether the issues are substance related, behavioral, or academic, parents often benefit from sharing information and ideas with a community of other parents. At Insight, our confidential groups offer a place to share successes, learn new strategies and address concerns.
Parent coaching is offered to parents who may want telephone or in-person sessions to get support with parenting their teen. Limit setting, knowledge of age-appropriate activities, and parent empowerment are all goals of our coaching sessions. Coaching sessions are individualized to meet the unique needs of each parent and teen.
