Does my child need teenage anxiety rehab?
If your teenager is experiencing anxiety that is impacting their daily life, it is important to consider seeking professional assistance. Only a mental health professional, such as a clinician, can diagnose an anxiety disorder, but parents and guardians are often the first to recognize the signs and can help their child receive the necessary treatment. If you believe that your teenager is struggling with anxiety and would like support, please do not hesitate to reach out to Avery’s House for further guidance and resources.(855) 506-1906
