“AT THE BALANCE TREATMENT CENTER, WE BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE CAN LIVE THE LIFE THEY DESIRE
We understand that change is not easy, and we strive to create an environment that surrounds the client on all sides. By offering the right balance of support, encouragement and challenge, we can create lasting change and offer each client the life they have always hoped they could live.”
Balance Treatment Center is excited to expand our existing Mental Health programming for adults and adolescents, and offer a kids mental health program to latency-aged kids from 6 years to 12 years old. It is a time when our kids, more than ever, demand our support and focus as they have been caught in a pandemic resulting in much isolation during a critical period of their growth and development. We believe we can work together as families, communities and professionals to help our kids regain and even strengthen what has been missed.
All Balance programs will soon be adding a kids track for children aged 6-12 years of age and their parents. The program will offer a supportive environment for children to learn about their social emotional wellbeing, and will include healthy strategies to effectively regulate their minds and bodies. The program will offer built-in support for parents, which will include weekly parenting groups that teach effective parenting skills and include psychoeducation on how to manage their own social emotional health while raising their children. Families will learn how to effectively co-regulate together while strengthening their understanding of how to continue to grow and adapt as a cohesive family unit.
The program will offer 9 hours a week of group therapy for the children and their families. The kids will engage in social skill building as well as emotional regulation curriculum that incorporates knowledge about sensory processing, executive functioning, and emotional functioning for this age group. Children struggling with ADHD, ADD, ODD, OCD, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD and other mental health troubles would be the ideal candidates. Children that have Mild ASD presentations can be benefit as well, and will be able to incorporate into the program.
