Family Involvement

We recognize that when a teen or child is hurting, it is painful for the entire family. Your participation is encouraged throughout treatment.

Discharge planning ensures that improvement continues when inpatient care is no longer necessary. Some patients needing more extensive treatment will utilize our Partial Program for Adolescents. This step-down program allows adolescents to return home in the evenings.
