We are resuming in-person programming for partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatments. In-person connection is incredibly important to behavioral health treatment and we are eager to provide this support to our patients as they move forward on the road to recovery. We also know that the safety and health of our patients and staff is top priority. See our latest update on steps we are taking to ensure everyone at our facilities are following guidelines as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


Our treatment center in Palm Beach Gardens offers intensive day-treatment programs providing partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient levels of care. We operate Monday through Friday and support adolescents between the ages of 11 and 17 who are struggling with various mental health concerns. The gender-inclusive facility is over 4,500 square feet divided into therapy rooms, group rooms, and a conference room.

Insurances we accept include but are not limited to Anthem Blue Cross, Cigna, Beacon, Unicare, and Kaiser. For more information on what other insurances we accept, please visit our insurance page.

The treatment program is designed to assist clients in developing insight into their mental health issues and support them and their families in developing new and healthy patterns of thinking and living in home, educational, and social settings. The program promotes emotional regulation and awareness by utilizing therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), shame resilience, psycho-dynamic and behavioral modification along with experiential therapy through art or yoga. Families are integrated into the work with weekly multi-family group sessions, homework, and family meetings. We provide a safe and supportive environment in which our clients can begin to understand and change negative behaviors and unhealthy coping skills.

The North Palm Beach facility is located right on US Highway 1 in a professional building adjacent to waterfront homes, just moments from the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.
