Help for our most vulnerable patients

Millions of teenagers across the country struggle with depression, anxiety and other behavioral health issues. It can be the most heart-wrenching and confusing time a parent will ever face. Maybe bullying, peer pressure, a substance use disorder or family issues are affecting your teen and holding them back from reaching the developmental milestones that will guide them into adulthood. Our experts are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for teens experiencing any of the following:

  • Depression, sadness and hopelessness, perhaps from being bullied at school
  • Struggles with substance use disorders
  • Self-harm, thoughts of self-harm or suicidal ideations
  • Behavioral problems such as a significant decline in grades or skipping school
  • Poor impulse control
  • Mood instability
  • Auditory or visual hallucinations
  • Anxiety or panic attacks
  • Hyperactivity, hypervigilance, paranoia or delusions
Our Adolescent Program includes three service levels:

Inpatient Program
In some situations, especially when teens are a danger to themselves or others, they may benefit from the comprehensive support and structure of inpatient care. During this period, they will receive the attention and treatment necessary to get back on a path of wellness.

  • Patients receive medical and clinical assessments
  • Group and individual sessions focus on current issues, cognitive therapy, and healing and moving forward
  • A treatment plan and team consisting of psychiatric and medical specialists and therapists

Partial Hospitalization Program
For patients who may be transitioning from inpatient care or who may need more intensive treatment in a time of crisis to prevent the need for hospitalization.

  • Patients attend five groups per day, five days a week
  • Groups focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Coping Skills Training and WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plan), an evidence-based system to help people attain the highest level of wellness or relapse prevention
  • Our team of psychiatrists provides comprehensive medication management

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
For the individual who may be stepping down from partial hospitalization but still requires the support and structure IOP provides (or who may need more intensive treatment than that offered by traditional outpatient care).

  • Patients attend three groups per day, three days a week
  • Sessions include a daily process group (to work through current issues), cognitive therapy, and the daily WRAP or relapse prevention group
Key components of treatment include:
  • Psychiatrists
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Mindfulness
  • Support groups (including 12-step groups)
  • Relapse prevention
  • Stress management and life skills development
  • Problem solving
  • Family therapy
  • Collaboration with outpatient providers
  • Aftercare planning for continued recovery
