Therapy Services

Haven provides a wide range of services to its residents. We provide prevention services to help our clients avoid problems before they arise, as well as intervention services to help them once a problem has been recognized.

While the majority of the services we provide fall into one of these categories, “help” means something different to each adolescent or family who comes to us. Because of these differences, we ensure that our services are tailored to the specific needs of the clients we serve.
