Avery’s House: A better alternative to Group Homes

Finding the right treatment for a troubled teen can be overwhelming. At Avery’s House in Phoenix, we offer a specialized alternative to traditional group homes. Our residential treatment center is designed to meet the unique needs of teens, providing top-notch care in a nurturing environment. With a team of experienced therapists, counselors, and support staff, we deliver the highest level of care and support.

What is a group home?

A teen group home is a residential care facility designed to provide a supervised and communal living environment for a small number of teenagers. Residents are encouraged to forge meaningful connections and develop crucial life skills. 

Group homes are for teens who can’t currently live with their families but require considerable care and support.

These facilities aim to recreate a family atmosphere, giving teens care and guidance similar to that they would receive in a traditional home.

Group homes can be state-operated or privately owned and may house only boys, only girls, or both sexes. Quality of care differs widely across facilities, whether state-run or privately managed.

Limitations of group homes for teens in Phoenix

  • Insufficient specialized care: Group homes often provide basic care but lack the resources and expertise needed for significant mental health or behavioral issues.
  • Limited individual attention: Traditional group homes, often understaffed, struggle to offer the personalized attention troubled teens require.
  • Inadequate educational support: Academic assistance in many group homes is minimal, potentially causing learning gaps and academic setbacks.
  • Basic life skills training: While group homes teach fundamental life skills, they may not sufficiently prepare troubled teens for successful independent living.

Awareness of these limitations is vital when seeking appropriate treatment for your troubled teen. As you explore your options, consider how group home alternatives like Avery’s House provide a solution more tailored to your child’s needs. 

Our adolescent treatment center might be a good fit if your child…

  • Requires one-on-one attention from therapists and clinicians to facilitate in-depth exploration of complex issues
  • Recently completed a psychiatric stabilization program in a hospital or other inpatient setting
  • Tried outpatient options, such as partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) or intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), but needs additional support
  • Needs to disconnect from their current home, school, and/or social life to fully focus on recovery

Residential treatment centers

When comparing traditional teen group homes to residential treatment centers, the key difference lies in specialized care. Group homes provide basic needs like shelter and food but often lack the resources to address complex behavioral, emotional, and mental health issues that many troubled teens face.

Specialized Therapeutic Services

Residential treatment centers use various treatment modalities, including individual, group, and family counseling, to address mental health challenges.

Tailored Treatment Programs

Unlike one-size-fits-all approaches, residential treatment facilities tailor treatment programs to each resident’s unique needs.

Robust Educational Support

Residential treatment facilities often offer robust educational support, ensuring that teens don’t fall behind academically while in treatment.

A program that prepares teens for real-life challenges

At Avery’s House, we know that a primary goal of treatment should be preparing teens for life beyond our walls. To help us do this, we offer the following: 

Family Engagement

  • Families learn how to help their loved one in their recovery journey by participating in support groups, family visits, and one-on-one therapy sessions.

Academic Services

  • Teens acquire skills that help them complete assignments, deliver presentations, and handle academic tasks more proficiently.

Medication Management

  • Understanding that therapy alone may be inadequate for some teens, we provide comprehensive medication management for those who need it.
