These are among the most common childhood problems we see at Alta. The good news is they’re treatable — usually without medication. And the cost of treatment is usually covered by Medicaid and most health insurances.

Testimonials

What is best about Alta is that the staff are very friendly and nice and make my son comfortable.

I feel it’s a good place, and my child’s counselor is meeting both of our needs.

I am glad that I chose Alta. My children are way better now.

This is an awesome concept for parenting…it just makes sense!

I wish someone from my son’s school would have recommended Alta sooner.
