Our highly trained staff are equipped with the necessary skills and techniques to effectively and efficiently handle crises. Through the use of evidence-based de-escalation techniques, we can prevent potentially harmful outcomes and ensure the safety and well-being of both our clients and staff. Through these techniques, we can increase the effectiveness and success in managing crises, providing your daughter with the best possible care during difficult times.

Ongoing Monitoring

At our facility, we prioritize your daughter's safety and well-being. That's why we offer 24/7 monitoring and support to ensure peace of mind for both the teenage girls in our residential program and their loved ones. Our team is trained to promptly intervene if any issues or concerns arise, and we provide ongoing assessments to track progress and adjust treatment plans as necessary. With our dedicated staff and thorough monitoring system, you can trust that your daughter is in good hands.

Client-Centered Care

We understand that every adolescent girl is unique and has her own specific needs. That is why we offer personalized care that is tailored to each individual, instead of using a one-size-fits-all approach. Our main objective is to empower your daughter to take control of her own care and well-being by involving her in the decision-making process and giving her a greater sense of agency. We firmly believe that by closely collaborating with both your daughter and your family, we can create a comprehensive and effective plan for your overall health and happiness. Our team is committed to delivering the highest quality of residential care while promoting independence and self-advocacy for your daughter.

Individual and Group Therapy

For teens experiencing a crisis, immediate support is crucial. That's why our teen residential treatment program provides support and guidance tailored to your daughter's unique needs. We believe that no one should go through a crisis alone, and our clinical services aim to provide the necessary support and resources for teens to overcome their challenges and thrive.

Through a combination of individual and group therapy, OASIS equips teens with tools to manage crises and begin the healing process. Our licensed therapists will personally guide your teen through individual therapy sessions to address the root of their crisis and start their healing journey. Our group therapy sessions provide a supportive community of peers who can relate to and understand the struggles of being a teenager.

Our team is dedicated to providing evidence-based interventions and therapies that have been proven effective in helping young women overcome their struggles and build resilience. These include:

  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an effective form of therapy that can quickly help teens identify and change their negative thought patterns and behaviors. This type of therapy also provides practical coping strategies for managing thoughts and emotions during a mental health crisis. One of the great strengths of CBT is its ability to be customized to adapt to individual needs and situations. This means that no matter the specific challenges your daughter may be facing, CBT can be tailored to address her unique concerns and help her overcome her struggles. By utilizing CBT, teen girls can experience significant improvements in their mental health and overall well-being.
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a proven method for helping girls learn practical techniques for managing intense emotions. It is particularly beneficial for reducing the risk of self-harm and suicidal thoughts, which are unfortunately common among today's teens. DBT equips teenage girls with the tools they need to improve their overall emotional regulation, allowing them to lead healthier and happier lives. With DBT, your daughter can learn how to effectively cope with difficult emotions and situations, leading to a more positive and fulfilling future.
  • Recreational therapy is a valuable tool in promoting emotional and physical well-being through enjoyable activities. This approach is particularly beneficial for teenage girls who may struggle with verbalizing their struggles. By engaging in recreational therapy, your daughter will learn valuable resilience and coping skills in a fun and challenging setting. This alternative approach offers a refreshing change from traditional talk therapy and can be highly effective in helping your daughter overcome obstacles and improve her overall mental health. By incorporating challenging activities into therapy, recreational therapy helps teenage girls develop important coping skills while also promoting a sense of fulfillment.
  • Psychoeducation is a powerful tool for empowering teenagers to take control of their mental health journey. By providing practical techniques for managing crises and encouraging a sense of personal responsibility for her own mental health and well-being, psychoeducation equips your daughter with the skills and knowledge necessary to navigate her mental health challenges. This approach not only empowers her to take an active role in her own well-being but also fosters a sense of independence and self-sufficiency. By educating teenage girls about their mental health and giving them the tools to manage it, we are setting them up for a lifetime of success and resilience.

Medication Management

As a caring parent, your daughter's health is a top priority. That's why at OASIS Ascent, our licensed psychiatrist specializes in administering psychiatric medications and optimizing their effectiveness to support your teen's overall well-being. Our residential treatment center provides a personalized treatment plan for your child, including the option for medication management when necessary to improve their mental health.

Family Involvement

Teenagers don't experience a mental health crisis in isolation; rather, it occurs within the context of their family system. Because the challenges your daughter is facing impact your entire family, the healing process must include your family.
Our family services provide weekly family therapy sessions and parent support groups so your whole family can experience the healing process. During family therapy sessions, our qualified therapists will help you and your daughter work together to support each other and find ways for your family to heal.

Our weekly support groups offer a safe space for parents to find comfort and support from others who have faced similar challenges. Through this, you can learn from other families who have successfully navigated their teenager's mental health crisis.

By engaging in our family services, families can find hope, healing, and a community to help navigate the challenges of supporting a teenage daughter through a mental health crisis.

Academic Support

At OASIS Ascent, we understand that every teen learns differently. That's why our tailored education program is designed to fit your teenage daughter’s specific needs and learning pace. As an accredited school, we ensure that all our students receive a high-quality education. Our blended-learning model combines direct instruction from qualified teachers with a self-paced digital curriculum, providing both flexibility and effectiveness in our instruction. At OASIS Ascent, we are committed to ensuring that your daughter's mental health crisis does not jeopardize her education.

Safety & Relapse Prevention Planning

A strategy for safety and preventing relapse is crucial in ensuring that your teenager does not revert to the troublesome behaviors that caused their mental health crisis. This prevention plan is essential for a smooth and long-lasting recovery process. By empowering your daughter and allowing her to feel in control during her healing journey, this strategy can also improve her mental well-being and foster her independence as she transitions into adulthood. As a parent, you can have peace of mind knowing that your daughter is equipped with a well-structured plan to navigate the future crises she may face.

At OASIS Ascent, we have seen firsthand the transformative power of residential treatment for girls. We have witnessed countless success stories and are confident in our ability to help your daughter find healing and hope.

We had a very positive experience with OASIS, from intake to discharge. We were greeted with kindness and compassion from the start. Communication both before admission and throughout our daughter's stay was great. We were always promptly notified of any bigger issues but were also pleased with regular status updates on all the day-to-day progress or setbacks. The therapy and groups provided our daughter with invaluable lifetime coping skills and the confidence that she can use those skills to get through her tough times. From our daughter's own words, the staff at OASIS did not give up on her and that gave her the belief in herself that she needed. The staff was the right blend of tough to challenge her, but compassionate and caring to support her when everything just seemed like too much for her. We will be forever grateful to everyone at OASIS.

One parent, Vania, shared her daughter's journey at OASIS Ascent

We credit OASIS as a whole, her therapist, the med, and psych teams for saving our daughter’s life. They kept her safe! Our daughter completed the program with her meds stabilized, her emotions regulated, and a willingness to continue treatment. She still misses the staff and other students.

Another parent, Alex, expressed his satisfaction with our personalized care
