In an effort to expand their services, Polaris Teen Center is excited to announce the opening of their second location in Tarzana, California. By having two locations near each other, the team at Polaris believes it will be much easier to effectively achieve their long-term mission of helping struggling teens realize their full potential. —
Tarzana is a neighborhood in Southern Los Angeles that currently has a population of about 40,000. Polaris—who specializes in treating teenagers with mental health disorders (and co-occuring substance abuse disorders) —opened the doors to their first Encino location roughly five years ago. While the experienced team is incredibly proud of the work they have accomplished so far, they recognize that there are still many teens in need of help.
Polaris Teen Center has gained widespread acclaim due to the fact that, unlike some rehabilitation programs, the staff is able to simultaneously address substance abuse and mental health issues at once. This innovative approach to treatment has gained increased attention in the teen psychology community and is frequently referred to as dual diagnosis or co-occurring treatment.
The team at Polaris also prides themselves on their commitment to using evidence-based treatment options and creating customized programs for each teen that walks through their doors. Many of those who have received treatment from Polaris in the past speak quite highly of their experiences and recognize the value that the treatment center is able to offer.
While Polaris Teen Center offers a wide range of treatment options, they specialize in teen residential treatment. Contrary to the “less intensive” alternatives that can be found elsewhere, residential treatment centers make it possible for recovery to be a foremost priority.
Between Polaris’ skilled implementation of dual diagnosis, recognition of the unique issues faced by the LGBTQ+ community, and their ability to offer personalized treatments, the company has established itself as a mental health provider capable of handling the challenges of modern teen psychology. Though there will still certainly be a lot of work that needs to be done, the opening of a new location is good news for both parents and teens in the Los Angeles area and beyond.
