What We Treat

When considering residential treatment programs or an inpatient substance abuse treatment program, parents need to look for five aspects of a program that help troubled teens:

  • the training and credentials of the therapists;
  • the therapist-to-client ratio;
  • the range of issues that falls under their expertise;
  • the structure of the programming, including the number of hours in individual therapy; and
  • the amount of family therapy and aftercare programming.

Capstone’s team is highly trained and talented, but more importantly we are genuine and loving. Our purpose is to provide help for troubled teens or struggling young adults and their families. Our expertise in multiple addictions, trauma and attachment, and family conflict and relationships are implemented in a programming structure and a low therapist-to-client ratio to maximize successful outcomes. The issues that we work with regularly include:

  • young adult and teen substance abuse, including alcohol/drug addiction or compulsivity (65-70% of our young men have struggled with substance abuse);
  • problematic sexual behaviors, including pornography/sexual addiction or compulsivity;
  • trauma and its symptoms – self-harm, isolation, anxiety, self-sabotage, apathy;
  • relinquishment and attachment issues;
  • compulsivity in video gaming, internet, social media and technology;
  • being bullied both physically and through social media;
  • co-occurring disorders such as anxiety, ADHD/ADD, young adult and teen PTSD, young adult and teenage depression;
  • loneliness from a lack of connection with friends;
  • behavioral and attitude issues: defiance, laziness, idleness,
    irresponsibility, entitlement;
  • an inability to move forward in life in a healthy, successful and age-appropriate manner;
  • family conflict: parent-child, siblings, marital;
  • failure to launch and related issues; and
  • school and legal problems.
