Adolescent LGBTQ Treatment Program

a group of kids to show the adolescent lgbtq treatment programMassachusetts Center for Adolescent Wellness (MCAW) is committed to providing compassionate, evidence-based treatment for LGBTQ+ adolescents in Massachusetts. We understand that navigating adolescence can be challenging for any young person, but it can be hard for those who identify as LGBTQ+. Our adolescent LGBTQ treatment program offers a safe and supportive environment where teens can receive the specialized care they need to address their mental health concerns. 

With two convenient locations in Lynnfield and a center opening in Braintree, MA, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive support and care for adolescents aged 13 to 17 years old and their families. Call us at 855.940.6229 to learn about our teen treatment programs today. 

Our Commitment to LGBTQ+ Adolescents 

At MCAW, we recognize the unique challenges faced by LGBTQ+ teens. It can take time to figure out who you are, and sometimes teens face struggles like substance use or mental health challenges on top of finding their identity. It’s important to have an affirming space to offer care. 

Our specialized adolescent LGBTQ treatment program is designed to offer a safe, affirming space where LGBTQ+ teens can explore their identities while receiving expert mental health care tailored to their specific needs. 

Why MCAW Stands Out 

Our program distinguishes itself by focusing on several key areas that cater specifically to the mental health and well-being of LGBTQ+ adolescents: 

  • LGBTQ+ friendly environment – We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive atmosphere that respects and celebrates all identities. 
  • Evidence-based Therapies – Our treatments are grounded in proven methodologies from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and expressive art therapy. 
  • Holistic Approaches: We believe in treating the whole person, incorporating Mindfulness Meditative Therapy, Music Therapy, and other holistic methods into our programs. 
  • Expert Care Team: Our therapists and mental health professionals are experts in their fields and deeply committed to supporting LGBTQ+ teens. 

Navigating the path to wellness can be complex, but with MCAW, LGBTQ+ adolescents are not alone; they are supported every step of the way toward achieving mental health and happiness. 

Our Programs and Services 

Our adolescent LGBTQ treatment program offers a variety of services to meet the unique needs of teens and their families, including: 

  • Individual therapy – One-on-one therapy sessions with an experienced therapist 
  • Group therapy – Small group therapy sessions that provide peer support and promote connection 
  • Family therapy – Involving family members in the treatment process to improve 
  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP) – A daytime program providing structured support and therapy 
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP) – Flexible yet intensive, this program allows for significant care without full-time attendance 
  • Aftercare and alumni programs – Ongoing support is vital to sustained wellness, which is why we offer programs designed to help our patients maintain their progress and stay connected 

Conditions We Treat 

Our expertise covers a wide range of conditions, including anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, depression, PTSD, substance use disorder, and more, with a compassionate understanding of the additional complexities LGBTQ+ teens may face.
