Staff at Adolescent Growth

Whether you are seeking help at one of our facilities in California or our location in Lombard, Illinois, you can expect every member of our staff to be kind, compassionate, gracious and professional.

When we hire our staff, we are not just looking for a great treatment team, we are looking for people who are committed to the same principles of good client care that we are.

Every member of the Adolescent Growth team must continuously demonstrate a commitment to our core values, embodied in the acronym CLIMB; Care, Leadership, Integrity, Merit and Budget.  These five values inform everything we do from the beginning of your healing journey all the way to the end.
