Adolescent Care

For adolescents in need of behavioral health treatment, we offer options to help stabilize behavior and help our patients return to the community with new coping skills. Our acute program serves adolescents who require immediate stabilization for a mental health crisis, and provides inpatient treatment for an average of seven days.
