Teen & Adolescent Treatment Programs

Our adolescent programs include PHP and IOP outpatient care, that includes individual, family, and group therapy

SunCloud Health offers a comprehensive adolescent treatment program tailored to meet the unique needs of teens and adolescents struggling with various challenges. With three strategically located centers in Naperville, Northbrook, and Chicago, IL, SunCloud ensures that quality care is accessible to families across the region. Recognizing that every adolescent’s journey is distinct, we provide two levels of care for teenagers: Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP).

The IOP is designed for those who need structured therapy but can maintain their daily activities, offering treatment 3-5 days a week for 3 hours each session. This program strikes a balance between therapeutic intervention and allowing adolescents to engage in their regular routines. On the other hand, for those requiring more immersive care, the PHP runs 5 days a week, dedicating 6 hours each day to holistic treatment. This approach ensures that teens receive intensive care, guidance, and support as they navigate their path to recovery. By offering these specialized programs, SunCloud Health continues its commitment to fostering a nurturing environment that empowers adolescents to heal and thrive.

We are also proud to offer our new summer-based program called Sunny Days, an 8-week trauma-informed virtual IOP. Click here for more information.

We use evidence-based treatment modalities to execute our mission to provide integrated care to persons with complex, co-occurring conditions who have not been adequately helped by treatment models that focus on one “primary” condition. We use a sophisticated treatment approach addressing multiple co-occurring disorders at the same time, under one roof in an integrated fashion.

Meet Alexander Chevalier, MD, Medical Director of SunCloud’s Adolescent Program

My work focuses on uniting up to date, evidenced-based treatment with the needs of an individual and family at this very moment in time.  I firmly believe that by empowering the individual and family with the best available research and offering individually tailored interventions, I can serve as a steadfast ally in the pathway to recovery.  My goal is to help individuals turn their difficulties into a reservoir of personal strength.

Our shared experience of watching our teens struggle with mental health and addiction. 

– David Newton, SunCloud Health

At first, we think they are just making bad decisions. We justify this by believing that as adolescents, we expect some of this. We naively assume they will grow out of “it” and one day mature.  Signs that things might be worse than we hope include a few semesters of unusually poor grades, unexplainable and suspicious behavior, a substantial change in their friend group or months of them suddenly telling us how much they hate us.  After months of watching them go downhill, arguing with them and spending hours with close family and friends fruitlessly trying to come up with a solution for our newly diagnosed “difficult child”, we call their school counselor or a local therapist and ask for guidance.  If we are fortunate enough to get our kids to actually go see the school counselor or the local therapist (many are not!), once diagnosed with a mental health or addiction diagnosis, we are then faced with questions and thoughts ranging from, “give them more time, things will be fine..”, or  “How did this happen to MY CHILD when they had a fairy tale childhood”, or, “Now what do we do?”, or “What did I do wrong and how can I fix this since I am the parent, and nobody knows my child like I do?”
