San Diego Teen Rehab Center | Sovereign Health CA

Rancho San Diego, California

For teenagers – especially in the formative years – mental health issues are harder to pick up on due to puberty and otherwise natural mood turbulance. But like a pressure cooker, mental distress can compound with academic strains, family dysfunction or trauma to manifest in a variety of behavioral health issues.
Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego provides all-ecompassing residential treatment programs for teens with mental illness, substance use disorders, eating disorders and co-ocurring issues. It is also one of the few rehabs in San Diego that can provide teenage rehab.

Sovereign Health’s adolescent program is a refreshing retreat for extended recovery away from often-suffocating teen life stressors and toxic influences. Warm and inviting, our residential treatment is in Southeast San Diego County – tucked against the foothills of El Cajon.

The facility is located in a ranch-style setting, with green belts and trees surrounding the property.

Why choose Sovereign Health

Sovereign Health is a nationally recognized, Joint Commission-accredited treatment provider. We’re licensed for mental health, while treating all underlying co-occurring disorders such as addiction and eating disorders concurrently.

What sets us apart is our commitment to individualizing treatment for each patient, making sure to address underlying mental disorder or past traumas that often are what fuel addictions and mental health problems.

We don’t put a time frame on rehabilitation. Often state-funded rehabs, and small treatment centers will release a patient once they’ve hit a certain mark – whether they are successfully recovered or not. With Sovereign Health, treatment plans, levels of care and time within each level are tailored to ensure full recovery.

Sovereign accepts most major insurance plans. Private pay and financing is available through My Treatment Lender. Call our 24/7 helpine to learn more about what we can do for you.
