The rehab I went to was really good. I went to Avery's House. It was welcoming, accepting, and they really do care about us. It was literally a house so it didn't feel like a hospital or treatment center at all.
A safe & supportive place to land
Avery’s House is a teen mental health treatment home in Arizona. Our specialized professionals work with adolescents to evaluate, diagnose, & support various mental health conditions, including anxiety. We provide a non-judgmental, LGBTQA+ friendly environment where teenagers can safely begin or continue their treatment.
Does my teenager need help?
If anxiety is affecting your teen’s quality of life, it may be time to get help. While only a clinician or mental health professional can diagnose an anxiety disorder, parents/guardians are often in the best position to spot early warning signs and get their children the help they need.
Anxiety is the second most diagnosed mental disorder in children ages 3-17
Common anxiety symptoms in teens
Anxiety is the body’s natural response to perceived danger. Although anxiety is meant to protect us, it can also become a problem when it is triggered often and when there is no real danger. Common signs and symptoms of an anxiety disorder include:
- Excessive worry about everyday things or activities
- Irritability, restlessness, fatigue
- Difficulty focusing
- Difficulty sleeping
- Muscle tension or soreness, headaches
- Sweating or heart pounding
- Excessive bathroom use
- Suicidal thoughts
What causes teen anxiety?
Anxiety in teens can come in many shapes and sizes, and it does not always have a definitive cause. It can be triggered or worsened by any combination of risk factors. Here are some of the most common:
- Brain chemistry
- Early traumatic experiences
- Consistent stress
- Social influence
- Nutrition or food sensitivities (e.g. caffeine)
Avery's House promotes healing and growth through the work of our team and the excellence of our program.
