When your child is staying on our inpatient unit, they will receive a wide variety of treatment aimed at helping them get through their current crisis and return to their home environment. On average, adolescents stay with us for seven to ten days; some do not need as much time to stabilize, and others need more time.  

Every aspect of our unit programming and structure is designed to be therapeutic for adolescent females; we utilize aspects of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) in our programming. The entire milieu and inpatient experience is designed to be therapeutic and engaging; our compassionate team focuses on fostering a safe, trusting environment and providing positive reinforcement throughout each adolescent’s stay.
