DBT helps our teens change ineffective behavior patterns into effective ones. DBT treats issues such as impulsivity and overwhelming emotion, which are recurring themes among adolescents with mental health and substance abuse disorders. DBT works to achieve four primary goals: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. Over time, the Evolve therapeutic team has honed in on what works and what doesn’t. Our DBT approach revolves around three core concepts: clarity, precision, and compassion.

At EVOLVE, we excel at getting to the root of the problem. A teen may come to us for help with an addiction issue, only to discover later there’s an underlying mental health disorder at play. That’s why detox can be an essential piece of the puzzle: the effects of drugs can mask the symptoms of co-occurring issues, which makes it impossible for us to understand what’s really going on. We can only establish an honest and accurate biological, psychological, and social baseline upon which to formulate an Individualized Recovery Plan after a teen is clean, sober, and drug/alcohol free.

Alcohol isn't just illegal for teenagers to consume; it can be deadly if they drink and drive. In fact, drunk driving is one of the most frequent causes of death among teens. Alcohol impairs most of the skills that young drivers need the most. #TuedayTips http://ow.ly/DLYH30hre2S
