Child and Adolescent Services

Walden offers treatment services for children and adolescents for both mental health and substance use disorders. 

We use Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administrative (SAMHSA) approved evidence based practices such as, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, 7 Challenges and Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA). We provide a comprehensive assessment to determine the best treatment plan for the individual/family.

Therapy may take place in a group or individual setting.  Family therapy is also an option.
