We believe that Self Harm, Addiction or Suicidal Behaviors are symptoms of mental health issues that the teenager has been dealing with for a longer period of time. The symptoms can be dealt with and eliminated within a short period of time, but the underlying issues such as Depression, ADHD or a childhood Trauma requires a dedicated team of professionals and more time to deal with. Our team has specialized in dealing with these disorders and symptoms over the past 25 years.
"My parents sent me to Insight when I was 15 years old. Even though I was very young, my daily using was out of control and I was dealing with issues that I was not capable of handling on my own. Insight brought my issues to the light when I couldn’t see them. No one likes rehab. I still can’t say that I enjoyed Insight, but I can say that it helped and brought me back when nothing else could. I needed the intensity that Insight offers; my life was unmanageable. As cheesy as this is, the staff and therapists loved me until I could love myself. Even as an Alumni I still feel like Insight is my family. Today I have over 3 years sober at 19. I have an amazing career and life today. Thanks :) "
"I was enrolled at Insight and I had a multitude of what Insight called “core issues” that resulted in my drug and alcohol abuse among other harmful behaviors. This was not just a place that helped me get clean, this was a place that set out to get me a clean slate. The program emphasized the uncovering and understanding of these “core issues”, which essentially set the table for what would become my recovery. Insight was instrumental in helping me learn about why I took the actions I did and why I had the feelings I had. I started at Insight as a 16 year old kid. I left insight as a man who has a great relationship with his friends and family. I have gone on to graduate from college and have been able to do things I never dreamed of. Thanks to Insight I never have to feel cold again. "
"I came into Insight Treatment in the middle of junior year in high school–the lowest point in my life. My family relationships were awful, my self image was at an all time low, and I was in need of help for substance abuse issues. Upon arrival at Insight I tried to convince my parents to let me out, but I could not be happier that I stayed. Insight completely changed me, and has easily been the biggest and most positive event in my life. I have now graduated from high school (on time, might I add), graduated Insight’s program, and my life is going great. My relationship with my parents is amazing and my brother is now one of my best friends. I think before acting and life never seems overwhelming. Insight has given me tools that I will use for the rest of my life." "
