Adolescent Behavioral Services

Teenagers deserve special attention. Our adolescent program for teens 13 to 17 is based on the strong belief that mental health treatment is not one-size-fits-all and the best care for teens differs from what is considered proper treatment for an adult. By treating teenagers in their own program, we give them the type of individualized attention they need.

Through our inpatient program, we support patients in a structured environment with continual use of positive reinforcement, constructive relationships and skill building. Our individualized treatment plans include individual, group and family therapy, as well as therapeutic recreational activities. Patients are not only supervised by our board-certified or board-eligible psychiatrists but also closely monitored by a medical physician to ensure overall health and well-being.
