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. 

Types of Treatment

The unit programming and structure are designed to empower patients to be set up for the greatest amount of success possible in their future endeavors. We utilize aspects of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) in our programming.

During their stay, each adolescent can expect to receive:

  • Daily medication management and meetings with a psychiatrist

  • Art and expressive therapy

  • Therapeutic and psychoeducational groups, including:

    • Substance use education

    • Diagnosis education

    • Medication education

    • Verbal expression

    • Positive thinking

  • Daily opportunities for exercise, on the unit and in the gymnasium

  • Dialectical behavior therapy skills groups

  • Family session with social worker

The entire 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.

Meals

In addition to daily therapeutic programming, we provide all meals and snacks; if your child has any dietary restrictions, we will do our best to accommodate them.

Length of Stay

On average, adolescents stay with us for five to seven days; some do not need as much time to stabilize, and others need more time.
