Treatment that Meets the Need of Every Teen

“We have created a program that focuses on each and every teen. Our approach is specialized — catered even — to all of our teens.”Tim Chapman
The purpose of this phase is to determine the type and severity of the problem your child is facing. Once the assessment is complete, we prescribe a personalized treatment plan for your teen that includes the methods of therapy needed.
If your teen is resistant to the idea of being treated, Teensavers will provide a non-threatening intervention process — led by a team of experts — who can bring your child to the self-realization that help is needed. In our experience, intervention results in the teen voluntarily entering the program 96 percent of the time. Teensavers can provide transportation to our facilities if needed.
If your teen has an addiction problem, he or she will enter phase two of treatment. Teensavers works with ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine) accredited physicians who oversee and monitor teens throughout the detox and stabilization phase.
ASAM physicians implement a different strategy depending on the teen’s case. In some cases physician’s may utilize medications that help eliminate cravings for certain substances. This has been shown to reduce pain and dramatically shorten the detoxification period.
The detoxification process averages three to five days. Once your teen completes this phase and is stabilized, he or she will enter phase three of the personalized treatment plan.
This phase focuses on providing the necessary psychological treatment to resolve the problems troubling your teen.
Our In-Residence Program provides teens with a safe home environment and 24/7 care administered by licensed counseling professionals.
Our staff has extensive experience with teenagers and their families. We understand that every teen is unique. We respect their individuality by catering to their needs in specialized ways.
After assessing the underlying causes troubling your teen, we develop personalized roadmaps that guide him or her through treatment and to a life of self-sufficiency.
We encourage parents or guardians to take an active role in the recovery process and we send weekly updates on the teen’s progress.
Phase Four begins once your teen has successfully completed the Teensavers In-Residence Program and is formally discharged.
We urge the teen and their families to continue the treatment for another 30 to 90 days as an outpatient. Continuing the treatment will help reinforce the tools acquired during the initial phases and will lead to more effective outcomes.
Outpatient treatment consists of individual, group and family therapy sessions held one to five days per week (depending on the teen’s case). Your teens will also be invited to participate in peer groups and community support meetings. This meetings generate a strong and cohesive network of people who encourage positive values and productive habits.
“My Lifespark is my enthusiasm for life.” Tim Chapman
Tim Chapman, founder of Teensavers, created The Lifespark Process as a way to help teens rediscover their dreams and aspirations.
Although it is the final phase of our program, The Lifespark Process actually begins on day one of treatment and continues far beyond their last day at Teensavers.
As soon as the teen is admitted into our program, they undergo a clinical and diagnostic evaluation during which a skilled counselor helps them determine a potential career path and their life’s goals.
We constantly reinforce these goals for the duration of your teen’s time in our program The main objective of the Lifespark Process™ is to reignite your teen’s passion for life and to get them into a mindset where they are once again driven to succeed.
