Weekday therapy program can help your teenager manage life’s stress

Many of us face overwhelming emotions as we are growing up. If your teenager needs additional support to manage feeling unsettled, to control anger or to keep up in school, consider our partial hospitalization program for adolescents. Designed for 13- to 17-year-olds who may need more than traditional therapy, our program allows your child to get behavioral health services during the day and return home at night.

A partial hospitalization program can give your teenager more resources for dealing with mood disorders, anxiety, depression, substance abuse or other psychological conditions. Our programs can be an alternative to inpatient or residential services. Programs are available in Charlotte and Huntersville. Choose a location based on the care available and your child’s needs.

Want to know more?

If you are interested in enrolling your teenager in our Charlotte program, call us at 704-384-7001 to schedule an appointment. For our Huntersville program, please call 704-384-1370. You also can get an appointment based on a referral from your child’s therapist, psychiatrist or primary care provider. One of our clinical therapists will make an assessment of your child’s mental and behavioral health to determine whether he or she meets admission requirements. Our programs are covered by most major insurance companies. If you will be paying the costs yourself, the Novant Health billing team can help you set up a payment plan.

Program benefits

  • Provides a broad range of intensive therapeutic approaches
  • Bridges the gap between acute inpatient and outpatient services for adolescents age 13 to age 17
  • Offers treatment for mood disorders, personality disorders, anxiety disorders, and other mental illnesses

Licensed clinical team members use group therapy and other therapeutic activities and interventions in a supportive setting to help adolescents learn to manage their symptoms. Participants support each other empathetically while learning various coping skills that help them and their families manage symptoms daily, instead of letting them build into a crisis situation that results in hospitalization.
