Inpatient Treatment

Treatment Approach
What to expect from inpatient treatment

Teens are often first admitted to our inpatient unit for crisis management and stabilization. Our staff of board-certified adolescent psychiatrists, social workers and nurses are here to help you and your family through this difficult time. In this safe, stable, nurturing environment you can be guided through a depressive or psychotic episode, prevented from harming yourself or begin dealing with an addiction. After an initial diagnostic assessment, a treatment plan will be created specifically for you.

Who we treat

We treat teens, ages 13 – 17, who may be struggling with one or more psychiatric disorders and/or an addiction. These include:

Persistent feelings of pervasive sadness, hopelessness and helplessness that interfere with thinking and daily activities.
Anxiety disorders
The persistent, excessive and unrealistic worry about everyday things.
The intentional and repeated physical harm of oneself.
Eating disorders
A range of disorders characterized by abnormal or disturbed eating habits, including anorexia, bulimia and binge eating.
Substance use disorders
The compulsive or difficult-to-control use of drugs or alcohol despite negative or harmful consequences.
Types of treatment offered

Our patient-focused, evidence-based treatments include:

Psychiatric Diagnostic Evaluation
