At McLean 3East, we are here to help and support teens and young adults with symptoms of self-injury, impulsivity, depression, anxiety, disordered eating, substance use and post-traumatic stress disorder. Using intensive dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), we work directly with you to build the skills and strategies that you need to successfully transition out of treatment and lead stable, rewarding lives.
