iCAAD Featured Sponsor: Yes We Can Youth Clinics

Yes We Can Youth Clinics is a treatment centre for young people from 13 to 25 years old who suffer from complex behavioural disorders, addictions and behavioural problems. A lot of the young people (fellows) we treat have found themselves lost in the healthcare system before coming to us. 

For many youngsters and their parents/caretakers, our distinctive approach is the turning point in their lives: 

  • Atmosphere: At Yes We Can Youth Clinics, unconditional warmth, a safe environment and confrontation at the right time are the centre of our organisation. Many young people have the same problems and many of our employees have had those problems as well, this helps ensure recognition amongst them. Due to the group dynamics, the fellows have the will and the power to really change.
  • Team: Yes We Can Youth Clinics works with multidisciplinary teams, healthcare specialists work together with experts by experience and youth coaches. In total about 220 employees are working for and with the fellows. 
  • Programme: We have an intensive 24/7 programme of 10 weeks, and an aftercare programme tailored to the needs of each individual fellow. They learn to acknowledge their problems and how to ask for help. During the programme they get to the root of their issues and learn how to deal with them . Parallel to the fellow’s programme, , parents/caretakers also follow an intensive family coaching & counselling programme. 

The treatment at Yes We Can Youth Clinics is successful for many of the young people we treat. Two-thirds of our fellows no longer need specialist care after Yes We Can. For more information please visit www.yeswecanyouthclinics.com.
