Equinox Residential Treatment Center Helps Georgia Families Find Success
Equinox Residential Treatment Center has helped multiple families around the United States find success through the three pillars of our clinical approach. The three-pillar approach forms a solid foundation for positive growth and development for Georgia teens who are struggling with the many common mental health issues today.
The Three Pillars of our Clinical Approach Include:
- Relationship-Based: At Equinox, we believe developing healthy relationships with staff and peers is an important part of achieve success. Therapeutic connection through relationship is the number one factor for change. To achieve this at our residential treatment center for Georgia youth, we hire and train our staff to effectively foster and maintain positive relationships with our students and families. Through these relationships healing and change occurs.
- Principle-Driven: Helping young men develop a positive value system is also an important part of our program. We help promote internal growth in our students by a process of interventions directed at helping boys embrace values and become young men of character. When Georgia boys develop these values and they become internal and solid, that is when change becomes solid.
- Experientially-Applied: This therapeutic approach uses experiences to shift Georgia teens thinking and perspective both cognitively and emotionally. Many adolescents resist or avoid change; experiential therapy can be new activities that are fun, challenging, uncomfortable, and physical. Through this process, teens receive therapeutic benefits without even realizing it. These activities help dismantle old ways of being and present new and healthy concepts that shift teens to take in new perspectives and ways of thinking.
Treatment For Teens : Treatment for Teens provides resources for parents of adolescents who are having challenges with behavioral and emotional issues. Their website contains various articles that discuss specific mental health diagnosis, new research, and current mental health news, which can be helpful for families looking for more information on how to help their struggling teen. Their resources include parenting tips and expert advice to help any parent concerned about their teen.
National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) : NAMI is an association that works to eliminate the stigma of mental health, by providing multiple resources for individuals who are struggling with a variety of mental health issues. NAMI offers generalized mental health information, and local resources to help each specific visitor find the help they need.
