Based on holistic principles, the Innercept programs utilize Integral Psychology to provide a treatment approach compatible with each individual’s aptitude in mind.
Tailor-made therapeutic and academic plans that are provided in a thorough, thoughtful manner as the team identifies each individual’s strengths on which they can build.
We view family support as a vital component, therefore; our parents play a large role in the treatment process. The team works to improve the relationships between residents and their family members. One way is through on-going phone family therapy and psycho educational work with parents.
Adolescent, Young Adult, Young Adult Transition, Aftercare, and Stabilization Programs are designed to empower youth as they explore their role in their family, peer group, community and world. Innercept provides a wide continuum of care, enabling residents to move into more or less structure based on functioning.

Starting The Journey
As a parent with a young person who made good progress at Innercept, and is now living independently as a young adult, I want to strongly recommend this program. She went from a conflicted, mood disordered, dependent, and very unhappy young person, uncertain of who she was and unable to manage (in any extended way) at school or in life, to someone who is coping with difficulties in the modern world, while also seeing the value of the treatment she needs. She is also someone who had naively made some dangerous past choices, now seen more clearly. Of course, the life journey continues, and not every problem is fully solved. Yet in this setting, which was caring, safe, nurturant while demanding, and socially responsible (promoting concern with relationships, community, and the broader world, not just one’s own issues), she could move from more to less restrictive levels, based on her own well-documented personal progress, while learning healthier ways to live. She stabilized, blossomed, found and gave support, progressed in school, learned skills for getting a job, and had the space to make a few mistakes, while having the safety net to recover from them. The clinical support was excellent, including support and communication with parents. I feel deeply for parents whose young people are hurting and who have to make these hard choices, but this is a strong option to consider carefully.

The Lesson I Learned at Innercept…I am convinced that life is not so much about what happens to us, but rather how we respond to the situations and people we encounter. You may stumble, fall or even have to crawl for a while, but there will be people who will, come along to dust you off and send you on your way again. I have found that life consists of making mistakes, learning from them and striving to be your best self. We must remember that we are merely human and therefore will not always accomplish what we set out to do. This much I now know…failure is inevitable, perfection ins impossible, success is measurable, happiness is attainable and I…I am able.

Our journey has been long and painful, but the results are impressive. We are well aware that our daughter’s challenges are far from over. We are confident however, that her new skills will carry her through whatever the future may bring. Thank you to the entire Innercept team for making this transformation possible!
