Inpatient Services

Adolescent Inpatient Services

Each patient who walks through our facility’s door is different, and our clinical team assesses each patient individually. Our team works closely with the teen’s family and community professionals in order to plan a treatment program that best suits the patient’s needs. Some of our therapeutic services include:

  • Medication evaluation and management
  • Group therapy
  • Family involvement
  • Individual counseling

We strive to provide teens an opportunity to learn different techniques to cope with mental illness. The self-awareness and behavioral management skills that are shared with each patient are designed to have a lasting effect on the teen beyond their adolescent years and into adulthood. We offer medication evaluation and management; group therapy; family involvement and individual counseling as indicated, with emphasis on:

  • Crisis stabilization and problem solving
  • Anger management
  • Abuse issues
  • Tips for managing stress
  • Interacting socially with others
  • Drug and alcohol assessment and education

What to Watch For

Parents and guardians can help teens living with mental illness by being observant of warning signs. Experts state that early mental health support can help a child before problems interfere with other developmental needs. By detecting issues in the earlier phases and seeking medical attention early, a teen has an easier road of recovery before symptoms become out of control. Here are a few early signs of what to watch for:

  • A sudden withdrawal or loss of interest in activities
  • Neglect of personal appearance
  • Drastic changes in personality, eating or sleep patterns
  • General lethargy or lack of energy or difficulty concentrating
  • Violent actions, rebellion or running away
  • Drug and alcohol use
  • Headaches or stomach aches
  • Loss of ability to tolerate praise or rewards

These behaviors may lead to the necessity of a structured program that inpatient care provides.
