The youth clinic and treatment centre
Yes We Can Youth Clinics believes fellows should leave their old environment to ensure calm for themselves and for their direct social environment. Some people need to leave their environment for reasons of (personal) security and safety. For that reason, our fellows stay at a unique location during their residential treatment.
When all else fails, Yes We Can Youth Clinics provides a solution for many teens and young adults, age 13 to 25, suffering from behavioural disorders, complex behavioural problems and/or addictions. Our approach has proven to be very successful: about 70% no longer needs intensive care after having completed 10 weeks of residential treatment and a minimum of 4 weeks aftercare. Our success rate is so high, precisely because we do not work alone, but together with our fellows and their parents. Successful treatment requires a serious effort from both of them. The collaborative approach at Yes We Can Youth Clinics has proven to be a turning point in the lives of thousands of teens and young adults.
Our Unique Treatment Approach
The Yes We Can Youth Clinics method is based on the principle of (positive) group dynamics. Our approach is both individualised and systemic. We use a tightly structured programme for fellows and parents to gain insight into their behaviour and its origins. Based on this approach, new tools are developed for helping our clients to get their lives back on track.
Our healthcare professionals and experts by experience work on the basis of unconditional acceptance of all those involved. We do not shun confrontation. Problems can be discussed openly and be shared with us.
Short Waiting Lists
Team of Experts
The YWCYC team consists of 150 extremely passionate professionals, including BIG-registered therapists such as psychiatrists, psychotherapists, addiction doctors and healthcare psychologists. In addition, we work with psychologists, family therapists, experts by experience, youth/educational workers, socio-psychiatric nurses, educationalists, systemic therapists, nurses and youth coaches to support and supervise the treatment process. A personal case manager and therapist will guide you through the process from start to finish.
Cooperation with Primary Healthcare Professionals
Yes We Can Youth Clinics maintains excellent professional relationships with healthcare professionals who have referred fellows and their families to us, such as family doctors, youth care professionals and other institutions. As a result, these care professionals are fully aware of your child’s progress, his/her experiences and what still needs to be done to successfully complete the treatment.
