OCD AND ANXIETY
To meet the area’s need for quality mental health treatment programs, Rogers Behavioral Health is opening a second Florida location in Miami in early 2019. Rogers has been serving patients in Tampa since 2014 and has clinics in seven states.
Rogers–Miami location will offer specialized services for patients in need of the next level of outpatient care. All patients have access to a board-certified psychiatrist and a multidisciplinary team of mental health experts. Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) will be available for adults, adolescents and children, and intensive outpatient programs will be added as appropriate after opening.
Rogers is a world leader in OCD and anxiety treatment. Our evidence-based approach is based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and exposure and response prevention.
Patients learn how to use behavioral activation and dialectical behavior therapy-informed skills to manage depression and other mood disorders.
Patients benefit from proven therapies in a structured setting as well as nutritional health and wellness education.
Rogers-Miami accepts most insurance plans.

The statistics on teen drug and alcohol use are staggering.
“Studies show that 15% of eighth graders have tried alcohol or other illegal substances, and 50% of high school students have reported trying some kind of drug,” says Dr. Azhar Yunus, medical director of Rogers’ Adolescent Recovery Program and child and adolescent outpatient services.
According to the Center on Addiction, 9 out of 10 people who go on to develop substance problems started using before they turned 18.
Since more and more kids are experimenting with alcohol and drugs at an early age, Dr. Yunus says recognizing the signs of substance use becomes critical.
Dr. Yunus also explains, “It’s rare that someone will just have substance use and no other mental health issues. In fact, substance use is often a way a teen may self-medicate or alleviate the symptoms he or she may be experience due to a co-occurring mental health disorder such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD.”
To be able to treat even more kids who are struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, Rogers Behavioral Health is expanding its Adolescent Recovery Program in West Allis.
Led by Dr. Yunus and a multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals, adolescents ages 12 to 17 receive evidence-based treatment in a homelike, residential setting. To learn how the Adolescent Recovery Program can help a teen you know, request a free confidential screening at 800-767-4411 or request a screening online.
