Teen Rehab Center

Sovereign Health is Joint Commission accredited to provide residential treatment for adolescents 12-17 years old in Rancho San Diego, California at our teen rehab center.

Adolescence is a time of great change that tends to bring physical, social and emotional turmoil. It’s often difficult for parents and other adults to decipher what is normal teenage behavior and what are signs of substance abuse or mental health issues. Even eating disorders are manifestations of psychological distress.

Our clinicians specialize in the unique behavioral health needs of adolescents to help them mature into productive, responsible and healthy adults.


What makes Sovereign Health a cut above other rehabilitation centers for teens is our full spectrum of clinical and alternative treatment. Our programs add form to our belief that lasting recovery stems from a solid foundation of treatment customized to each patient.

Sovereign Health’s therapy is a diverse composition of alternative therapies for personalized catharsis and expression, plus a full quiver of evidence-based modalities such as:

  • Trauma informed care (TIC)
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Solution-focused therapy
  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Play therapy
  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Intensive family therapy

Various types of care

Sovereign Health’s cornerstone is treatment tailored to each individual’s learning style and needs. To customize recovery, we offer two levels of care: Inpatient, also known as residential treatment (RTC) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP).

Inpatient RTC programs are the most functional type of treatment to individualize treatment. Sovereign Rancho San Diego’s nonhospital-based interdisciplinary program is 7 days a week, around the clock, in cabins specific to teens with either addiction or co-occurring mental health and substance abuse issues.

The summer camp-like group setting fosters a mutually supportive culture for the youth.

Sovereign Health Rancho San Diego’s IOP is a planned thread of sessions customized to the young patients. The program is as a step down from RTC, as the patient improves.

Sovereign Health is committed to the holistic treatment of eating disorders. Most cases of anorexia and bulimia start in an individual’s formative years. For this reason our eating disorder adolescent program was established to rehabilitate young people while they are still impressionable. An additional component of nutrition and body image therapy is added to his or her recovery.

Our Rancho San Diego adolescent treatment is also inclusive of gender diverse or transgender identity services.

Patient accommodations

Residential treatment programs for teens are typically “stop-gap rehab” offering detox and counseling sessions. By contrast, Sovereign Health provides comprehensive treatment and care in a comfortable residential setting, allowing patients the opportunity to focus completely on their recovery.

Our accommodations include:

  • Upkeep of a productive adolescent’s normal academic, social, fitness daily regimen – plus a healthy sleep schedule
  • Separate tracks for males and females – and further – for mental health, eating disorder and dual diagnosis of co-occurring conditions
  • A summer camp environment
  • Crisis intervention available 24/7
  • Uninterrupted supervision within our gated campus
  • Onsite nutritional chef and dietary service
  • Shady, tranquil grounds
  • Swimming pool

A productive and healthy teen would benefit from an active leisure life as well as intimate family time. We offer no less; Sovereign’s teen treatment includes family therapy up to twice a week and onsite intensive family support monthly as well as:

Weekly outings featuring:

  • Optional church/ youth group attendance
  • Hiking in nearby canyons
  • Movies, bowling, go-kart, beach/park outings

Alternative therapies not limited to:

  • Art therapy
  • Equine therapy
  • Yoga classes
  • Music therapy through Rock to Recovery
  • 12-step meetings and events

Life doesn’t stop when recovery begins, which is why Sovereign Health’s teen rehab center has an edge on other teen drug rehab centers. EDGE is our weekday classroom and study center where the adolescents maintain and complete independent study through his or her most recent school.

GED preparation is offered here as well as independent living skills.
