Embark Behavioral Health based in Arizona has leased 7,444 square feet of office space in Solana Beach at 462 Stevens Ave. as the company’s first location in San Diego County.
Embark was represented by Dan Henry, Kevin Calihan, and Amy Trott of CBRE in negotiating the lease.
The property is owned by American Assets Trust, Inc., which was represented by Dick Balestri and Lars Eisenhauer of CBRE.
Embark has operated a network of treatment and therapy programs across the country, with a special focus on mental health for teens, young adults, and their families.
“Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, our country faced the challenge of one in five youth with a required mental, emotional, or behavioral disorder but over half did not receive adequate treatment,” said Peter Chung, senior vice president of operations at Embark.
“Studies have shown that the pandemic created even more damaging effects on youth, with depressive and anxiety symptoms doubling,” Chung said. “We’re on a mission to reversing those trends and reducing them to all-time lows by 2028 via more quality and affordable access to our entire continuum of behavioral health services. We believe this location will help jumpstart that effort in San Diego and its surrounding areas.”
