When all else fails, Yes We Can Youth Clinics provides a solution for many teens and young adults aged 13 to 25, struggling with mental health issues, addictions and behavioural problems. Our approach has proven to be very successful: about 70% no longer needs intensive care after having completed residential treatment and aftercare. Our success rate is so high 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.

The programme is run by a large number of professionals and includes the following techniques:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Psychiatric consultation
  • Cognitive therapy
  • Effective therapy for addiction
  • Psycho-education
  • Family coaching & counselling
  • Emotion/aggression regulation
  • Trauma processing
  • A challenging, diverse sports- and outdoor programme

After registration via the contact form, you and your child will be contacted for an intake interview. During this interview, we together will examine whether our programme is suitable.


We offer the highest standards of treatment in the safest environment you will find anywhere in the world.  Our 230 healthcare professionals continuously look after 120 young people at any given time and we maintain the highest staff to fellow (client) ratio. The YWCYC team consists of extremely passionate professionals, including BIG-registered therapists such as psychiatrists, psychotherapists and healthcare psychologists. In addition, we work with 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.
