The Adolescent Acute Inpatient Program is provided to help males ages 10 to 17 and females ages 12 to 17. Our inpatient unit helps those who are experiencing depression, trauma, suicidal or homicidal thoughts, impulsive behaviors, psychosis and other mental health concerns.
We use evidence-based treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is designed to teach positive, healthy ways of regulation emotions by using coping skills to help decrease negative and unhealthy behavior patterns and emotions.
Individuals are admitted, treated and discharged from the program based upon established clinical criteria. Comprehensive assessment and evaluation determine the adolescent’s specific needs, as well as strengths and resources. Collaborative planning with the treatment team helps each patient develop specific goals and determines solution-focused interventions with the greatest likelihood of success. Our program features include:
Each individual attends school on site and is led by teachers certified through the Hardin County School System. Additionally, a behavior management system and linkage with an after-care professional are provided. The individual’s case coordinator focuses on developing plans for a transition to a less intensive level of treatment.
