Knoxville’s Teen Addiction & Mental Health Treatment Programs

Village Behavioral Health specializes in helping children, ages 13-17, who are struggling with mental health and/or addiction issues.  We are a residential treatment center and alcohol and drug treatment center with a strong academic program addressing the emotional and educational needs of the child. Below are the treatment modalities incorporated into our programming.

Individual Counseling

Individual Counseling: employed for all clients. The approach is usually intensive, brief, problem specific, with short-term goals such as resolving a problem, making a decision, carrying out a procrastinated act, or reducing the effects of a symptom. The counseling through our treatment program may involve the client’s counselor prior to admission and/or the client’s counselor following discharge. This is encouraged to enhance continuity and consistency in our treatment center’s programs.

Group Counseling

Group Counseling: a focused group counseling session, which deals with issues identified by either clients or counselors at our treatment center. Emphasis is on emotional and behavioral issues. Each client receives group therapy through our treatment programs on a daily basis.

Life Skills Group

Life Skills Group: this group consists of educational lectures/discussions using topics including identifying personal triggers, developing strategies to avoid triggers, identifying personal relapse dynamics and improving and utilizing support systems, stress management, coping skills, anxiety, anger, self-esteem, and communication. Individuals will be given homework assignments as well as group assignments to improve the ability to deal with situations they encounter.

Family Therapy

Family Therapy: designed to assist family members and clients in reorienting and restructuring relationship systems. This program involves family members in family counseling sessions with the client’s therapist. These treatment programs are supportive experiences providing opportunities to share and question aspects of the client’s care relative to family interaction and/or intervention of the client’s illness. The goal of this program is to provide the family with opportunities to increase understanding and knowledge regarding the child’s behaviors, and to be assisted in enhancement of client and family stress management, communication, and leisure time skills. Client family members attend family therapy during the client’s stay at our treatment center’s program.
