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.

The signs of teen depression aren’t always obvious
Is my child really depressed?
Depression does not look the same for everyone. In many cases, it’s wrongfully dismissed as mood swings associated with adolescence. While only a clinician or mental health professional can diagnose depression, parents/guardians are often in the best position to spot early warning signs and get help for their kids. Knowing the signs could help your teen to avoid a downward spiral.
