Our son just completed a three month stay at Ignite Teen Treatment. He entered the program overwhelmed with anxiety, anger, frustration, and a complete lack of self-worth. He was failing in school, had no respect for authority, was violent and/or destructive with personal property, and had begun to self-medicate with alcohol, marijuana and vaping. He was circling the drain in spite of our best efforts to provide appropriate mental health care. Ignite Teen Treatment’s approach is so effective because it supports each teen 24/7 through each stage of recovery as the addresses the whole person – body, mind and spirit. Our son learned to establish and keep a routine, life skills including working with others to complete common goals, proper nutrition, and ways to effectively communicate his needs and to calm himself when he becomes emotionally dis-regulated. We left a broken, miserable young man on the doorstep of Ignite and retrieved a happy, relaxed, confident young man who has a healthy sense of himself and his own self-worth. He is displaying leadership skills for the first time in his life. He has gone from a failing student to an A student in school. He is strong enough now to tell his peers that he will not participate in using drugs, alcohol or vaping and has asked them to respect his choices and not engage in those activities around him. He is mentally and physically strong now because he was given effective treatment and the opportunity to heal at Ignite. Our son has thanked us repeatedly for sending him to Ignite. It is a tough program for both the teen and family, but it is well worth the effort. The family sessions were invaluable in learning to communicate effectively. We are eternally grateful to the entire Ignite team for helping our son heal, and for helping restore peace in our family. This program works!
Just wanted to let you know that ________ is doing really well. Her reactions to things and mood has been such a big change!! As much as the Ignite process at times was a pain in the ass, we made the best decision ever by having her there.
Hello ——- I was successful in registering my daughter into the Ignite Teen Treatment facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have absolutely nothing but positive feedback on the program. The insurance coordinators, Devon and Jessica, were fabulous! They both worked all hours of the day, including late evenings and early morning hours to assist in receiving prior insurance authorization. She advocated with me while I was on the
phone with the insurance company on several occasions. She truly went above and beyond! While I was in route to the facility she even texted me to encourage me. She told me to call her if I needed support. After I dropped my daughter off, she personally called and checked on my emotional status. She was an angel!
In regards to the program itself, I am also very satisfied. They did a wonderful job communicating her progress and keeping me informed. My daughter also found this program extremely helpful. The counselor on site, was amazing. He truly was able to reach my daughter where no one else have previously been able to reach her. I have to commend the psychiatrist also. He did not rush to diagnosis her. In fact, he took over two weeks to thoroughly evaluate her. I appreciate the investment and time he committed to truly understanding the core of the issues.
The facility itself was also top notch. It was in a residential neighborhood. The program only accepted 8 patients at a time. Truly a wonderful program to be able to sustain a small ratio. The program offered several weekly offsite activities such as boxing, yoga, attending a movie, going to the park for lunch and other outings.
My daughter has made huge improvements since her admission. While she still maintains her daily struggles, the program instilled the basic strategies she needed to overcome these obstacles. I honestly believe that without this program my daughter would not be alive today!
