Family Testimonials

  • review rating 5  When we finally found the website for Pacific Teen, it provided the hope that we were desperately searching for our 15 year old son. Our local mental health options were either closed doors, scheduled too far out, or not what we were looking for. The first call to Jeremy was scary for me, but quickly reassuring that this program could be the right fit. And the availability was what we hoped for. Once our son was on board, the program proved to be what we hoped for and more. The clinical team is very sharp and communicative. The house is inviting. The schedule is well rounded. The staff is approachable, professional, and caring. Therapy is hard work, but there is still time for fun. And Malibu is hard to dislike. The approach on individual AND family involvement as valuable cannot be overstated - the whole family learns through the process. Treatment and therapy for the adolescent cannot happen in a bubble. So if I could give any advice: as much as it might be difficult on your time or schedule or finances, DO NOT miss Family Saturdays. Those days were so special and hard and therapeutic for our family; they were worth every bit of investment. We are currently 2 weeks post-discharge after our son's 38-day treatment, and adjustment to him home has been bumpy - not going to lie. But what we've all learned through the program has been completely life-changing for us, how we communicate and approach the bumps. We are immeasurably thankful and appreciative to the care, work, and support of Pacific Teen. Keep up the good work.

  • review rating 5  I am back to review three weeks after my daughter finished PTT. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the staff and the facility. They give your child the attention they deserve and need. They are always there to support you, take a phone call, or have a meeting. Never was someone not available for my daughter or my family. PTT operates with passion and understanding. The therapy, lessons, exercise, activities, and most of all the food are A+. ⭐️ During family therapy you will receive worksheets. My suggestion is to read these worksheets every day when your child comes home. Study the simple information on all infor PTT gives you. It will help you so much with your mindfulness. We can’t thank them enough! There are too many people to mention! We are so grateful for PTT giving us a kick start to better Communication/ boundaries.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😇😇😇😇😇😇🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞

  • review rating 5  Our teenage daughter was at another residential treatment center the year before, and PTT had a much superior program. Everyone there really cares about the kids and is very devoted to helping them get better. After a 55-day stay, our daughter came out a different person. I highly recommend PTT. A superb program!

  • review rating 5  I could go on for days about how amazing this place is! If your teen is in crisis, I highly recommend PTT. The entire family has learned so much & it's completely changed our perspective on communication and parenting, as a whole. They include family, which I believe is why they are so successful. My Son felt at home and was around people he trusted. The therapists and all employees love their jobs & it shows! Thank you, Pacific Teen, for all you have done for us.

  • review rating 5  We honestly can say enough good things about PTT. Considering a place to send you child during a difficult time in their life is a next to impossible thing to do. We called a few different places, but when we called PTT we knew we found the right place. Jeremy was kind, patient and took the time to answer all our questions. He described the before, during and after processes in great detail. Once we decided to send our child there, he took care of the rest. Arriving at PTT to drop off our child was a very difficult day, but the staff and facility quickly made us feel at ease. The house is very nice, clean and welcoming. You cant find a much better location then in Malibu. EVERY staff member at PTT truly cares for the kids. They have a great program where they combine therapy, healthy eating, fun activities and school work into a busy but very productive day. They have individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, art therapy, yoga, exercise, surfing, paddle boarding, horseback riding, hikes, bowling and many more fun activities that the kids truly enjoy. Our child and our entire family learned so much. We realized that our reactions as parents to certain situations were contributing to the problem. We learned many different approaches to these situations which allow us to better communicate with our child. Our child was actually very sad to leave the staff and other clients on the last day of treatment. We know that we may have times of difficulty in the future, but we feel we can get thru it now thanks to PTT. Thank you so much to all the staff at PTT for everything you did for our child and our family.

  • review rating 5  PTT truly has a ground breaking approach to what has become an epidemic in our society with mounting stress and anxiety on our youth. I truly believe there needs to be a paradigm shift in the mental health world started by these wonderful pioneers. They have created a nurturing, safe environment that promotes healthy lifestyles and is implemented by a caring and loving staff from top to bottom. Whereas most in the mental health space simply continue to label conditions or behaviors, they have figured out that most if not all that inflicts our children from drug/alcohol abuse to self-harm stems from a lack of self-worth. They have many unique techniques and approaches through group, family and one-on-one therapy that work on unearthing the root cause of these issues. Their holistic approach of integrating music, art, writing, yoga, exercise and healthy eating while taking time away from the ills of social media allows the kids to formulate better coping techniques for the real world instead of the maladaptive coping strategies that have brought us all to this point! That said, it is not an easy road and when your child returns home they are not "cured," but it will definitely change the trajectory of your families life. The truth is our daughter was not to pleased about having to do inpatient treatment originally, but she actually cried on the Uber to the airport that she was going to the miss the staff and other clients. We both got emotional thinking about this journey. Thank you so much to everyone on the staff at PTT. We miss you all and send love.

  • review rating 5  Our family will be forever grateful for the folks at Pacific Teen Treatment and what they accomplished with our daughter. Unlike the vast majority of treatment centers they stress the importance of family participation. This is an invaluable part of the program. When Jeremy Manne answered the hotline we were almost immediately put at ease and knew this is where we would take our daughter. Jeremy is one of the most caring and compassionate people I know. Only allowing 6 teens at one time is unheard of and there is a 2 to 1 ratio of therapist to teen. The staff is awesome. They are all highly trained professionals, very pleasant to work with, and most importantly, involve the teens in a variety of ways to help them absorb what they are there to learn and experience. The place is in a beautiful and comfortable setting, and the food is amazing. Our daughter learned so much about the importance of good, healthy nutrition. They are also very focused on helping with the transition when they leave. After bringing our daughter home, there were times when we had questions and needed some advice. They were very accommodating and took the time to speak with us. Our daughter even called because she knew she could ask questions and get what she needed. Our family can gladly say that we consider the folks at PTT to be friends for life. Speaking of life, they saved our daughter’s life and prepared us all for being able to communicate and support each other through life’s journey. Our daughter understands this is just the beginning and that she will never forget what she has learned. Thanks so very much to PTT! We love you guys.

  • review rating 5  I want to THANK Pacific Teen Treatment center for all their guidance, support, and teaching. We are greatly thankful for all the help we received from all staff. There are really no words to explain the appreciation my child and family have for every single one of you. The tools you provided us are working to better help my family during our daily lives and overcome some very difficult situations. GRACIAS ❤

Family Focused Treatment

At Pacific Teen Treatment, we believe it’s imperative for the family to be an integral part of the treatment process. We experience first-hand the research that links high success rates of adolescents leaving treatment programs to the quality of family therapy, to be true. In a society that’s often focused on individual success and personal achievements Family Therapy can often be overlooked. Placing a focus on the family treatment is our way of ensuring the best possible outcomes for the youth and families that we treat.
