Embark Behavioral Health is a unique organization comprised of
extraordinary programs dedicated to bringing the all-time high
rates of adolescent anxiety, depression, and suicide to all-time
lows while becoming the most recognizable, respected, and valuable
behavioral health organization in the world. At Embark at The
Forge, we work with adolescent teen males from ages 13-17 who
struggle with issues such as impulse control, attachment issues,
substance abuse, and dysregulated family systems.
