Now Open — Adolescent Care

Millions of teenagers across the country struggle with depression, anxiety and other behavioral health issues. It can be the most heart-wrenching and confusing time a parent will ever face. Maybe bullying, peer pressure, a substance use disorder or family issues are affecting your teen and holding them back from reaching the developmental milestones that will guide them into adulthood. We’re here to help.

A Path to Recovery

A staggering 20 percent of people age 13-17 live with a mental health condition, and 50 percent of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by age 14. Our Adolescent Program will be designed for young people who need treatment for mental, emotional or addiction problems. It will help our most vulnerable patients learn how to identify and change distorted thinking, communicate effectively in relationships, and regain control of their lives. SUN’s team of experts is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, partnering with teens and their families to help them map a journey to improved health and happiness.
