The most common question we get at Tamarack is the question “Does your program work? We answer that question with an enthusiastic “Yes.”
Tamarack’s program provides a wide variety of services, all at given points in time, to improve a young person’s situation and to provide them tools for effective living once they leave the Center. Different kids respond differently to the many services, so we pay particularly close attention to what works well for each individual. For some kids the medication management, along with a structured and predictable environment, has a long lasting beneficial effect. Other kids seem to gain from the skills associated with DBT and the social skills acquired when living in an environment with other adolescents. Our recreation activities often provide an opportunity as well as a plan for successful living in a stressful world. Certainly our emphasis on family and individual therapy pave the way for permanent improvement in the most important human relationships.
Adolescents thrive on a schedule. We plan everything from meals to recreational time, snacks to therapy for a routine your child can depend on.
Our teachers coordinate with student’s home districts to assure an academically appropriate education and ensure their education is up to date.
We provide residents with the opportunity for physical activity and for learning new skills for their minds and bodies.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Evidence-based therapy teaches mindfulness, tolerance, and emotional regulation.
The entire facility is dedicated to your adolescent’s well-being and care.
You are a key player in your child’s treatment, and we want you to be involved throughout the process.
