Specialized Treatment for the Whole Person 

Teens overcoming mental health and chemical issues can benefit from a wide range of services that we provide. We meet them where they are and provide the help that fits their individual journey to well-being.  

Involving the Family

When an adolescent is hurting, their whole family is hurting too. We welcome families into the recovery process. We work with youth and their families to help them create healthier behavior patterns, focusing on attitudes, emotions, and actions that can sabotage a teen’s ability to fully experience all that life offers. 

Helping adolescents find a path forward to mental and chemical health 

Everyone needs help sometimes and seeking help is a sign of resiliency and strength. Families often come to Omegon for their teenaged loved one after expensive outpatient therapy, and sometimes hospitalization after chemical use crises, suicide attempts and self-harming behaviors.  

Omegon’s staff are experts at building well-being and offer one of the few places in the region capable of helping residents find their path through both chemical health and mental health issues. 

Omegon is a longer-term treatment program designed to meet the needs of the resident. When possible, families play a large role in the treatment model are are supported in their contributions to help their loved one recover. Care and consultation after leaving Omegon is also an important offering for many residents and families. 

    Every person is unique, which is why we never use a one-size-fits-all approach.  At Omegon we work with each person to determine what services are needed, create pathways to access needed services, and coordinate with all the individual supports to ensure the services work effectively together.
