Examples of group therapy and educational groups we offer include developing coping skills related to anxiety and stress management, self-esteem, anger management, and grief and loss.

Children and adolescent programs

Our interdisciplinary treatment team provides mental health treatment for a wide range of medical, psychological, psychosocial and recreational needs. We are committed to helping children and adolescents to live successfully in the community and to develop into healthy adults. The following behavioral treatments are offered:

  • Acute inpatient treatment – Our short-term inpatient treatment program specializes in the recovery of children age 7 to age 17. Our mental health program is designed to rapidly identify each individual's primary needs and partner with their family to identify treatment strategies. Services are provided by child and adolescent providers in a caring and friendly environment.
  • Partial program – Our partial program team specializes in working with adolescents and teens requiring less intensive care than acute inpatient hospitalization. Our team of psychiatric-trained providers enable outpatient care five days per week. The program's educational component works with local schools to support the adolescent's education during their program stay while providing excused absences.
