Teen Treatment for Depression in Los Angeles That Isn’t Just On a Screen

Have you been looking for teen treatment for depression in Los Angeles for your teenager yet all of it seems to be online? When you go looking for offline treatment options, does it seem like they’re all unsafe (at best)? When it comes to the health and well-being of your teenagers, you cannot be too careful. During a pandemic unlike anything anyone has lived through, of course the safety of your child must be paramount. That said, treatment that’s just on a screen, through a computer, phone, or tablet, might not be the best option either. Those are just some of the reasons that many parents have turned to our in-person treatment here at Insight. 

A Safe Environment for Physical Health 

During this time, “safe” can have multiple meanings. First, it means that a location is “safe” from the virus. Here at Insight Treatment, we do everything in our power to make sure that our environments are as safe as possible. That means copious, strategically-placed hand sanitizer, enforced social distancing procedures, mask-wearing (by staff and patients) as well as so, so much more. 

A Safe Environment for Teen Treatment for Depression in Los Angeles

Another definition of “safe” can be “a place where someone feels comfortable, protected, and secure enough to speak up.” We also do everything in our power to make Insight Treatment that kind of “safe” environment, too. Our experienced, professional counselors know how to work with teens, even those that are taciturn, resistant, or just flat out don’t want to do it. Drawing upon years of experience, we know how to help teens to identify those underlying issues that are causing their issues right now. Through that process, we’re able to help teens to be able to ultimately overcome those issues. 

Teen Support Groups

A major part of how we help them to overcome those issues is through our support groups. Here, teens are able to interact with someone they might not have spoken to otherwise; someone dealing with all of the same struggles that they are. They’ll see that they aren’t alone. Moreover, they’ll be able to strengthen or develop those social skills that may have atrophied, so that they can make lasting connections. Through this, teens are able to build a foundation of abilities that will serve them long after they’ve left Insight Treatment (as well as their teenage years). 

Online Options Available 

All of this said, we know that there are some teenagers who need help who, for any number of reasons, may not be able to attend our in-person facilities. That’s perfectly understandable. We are able to devise certain online options, so that more teens can get the help and treatment that they need. When a teen is struggling with depression, substance abuse, or similar problems, it can be difficult to remember there really are options that can make things better.
