At Comprehensive Healthcare, we believe that within each of us, there is an ability to recover from any challenge or trial. Our child, youth, and family services focus is on helping children and families use their strengths to build resiliency and develop the skills needed for the recovery process.

We understand that parents or guardians want what is best for their child, and that the family is often the best support for children and youth. We not only want to teach children and youth helpful tools to help them recover, but we want to empower each member of the family to help them realize their important, supportive role in the recovery process.

If you are interested in enrolling into services for your child or family, please give us a call to get started.

Our Child, Youth, and Family Services include:

Family Therapy

We think of it services as working with the parent or caregiver who really are the main support throughout their child’s life.


Individual Therapy
Individual therapy for children really means we will work with the child or teen to learn skills to cope with the challenges or trials they are facing. During this process, we still connect and collaborate with their parent or caregiver.
