Professional treatment that addresses each client’s emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual healing.

Philosophy

The PHP level of care provides clients six hours of treatment, five days a week, from a team of highly trained therapists. At the Partial level of care, clients remain in their home environment while attending our full-day treatment program. Evolve PHP provides an effective alternative to residential or inpatient treatment and may be appropriate for those transitioning from one of these higher levels of care. The IOP level of care provides clients with three hours of treatment, three to five days a week. Evolve IOP may be appropriate for those transitioning from a partial hospitalization program (PHP) or for those who need more structure than weekly psychotherapy. The OP level of care provides clients with three hours of treatment, three to five days a week. Evolve OP may be appropriate for those transitioning from an intensive outpatient program (IOP) or for those who need more structure than weekly psychotherapy.

Evolve is a program that I wanted to work for given the reputation for ethics, integrity and a strong commitment to helping a very special part of our population, adolescents. This is not a "heads on beds" treatment center, it is instead one that truly does the hard work of doing their due diligence when working with families and their children who are in crisis. I have found the staff to be dedicated, focused, educated and willing to advocate for the clients. It has a strong clinical program and a team that is devoted to what is often times very difficult work. Evolve is all about what is in the best interest of the child and how do we best meet their therapeutic needs while supporting and assisting the family. It is a place for adolescents to discover their potential. It is a place for those who want to make a difference in another person's life.

Strengths: Therapy. Recreational activities. Loving staff. Process groups. Acceptance and commitment therapy, Disease concept, relationship(s) groups and relapse prevention. I would recommend this facility to all age groups. The staff made me feel welcome and comfortable. I got a lot of hard work done in therapy and all the other groups. Acqua only chooses the best places to go for Rec and the therapists are very knowledgeable. The food is awesome and even the kitchen staff is extremely nice and caring.
