Acute Symptom Stabilization for Teens
Foundations Behavioral Health provides acute inpatient hospitalization for adolescents ages 12 to 17 experiencing a psychiatric or emotional disorder that impacts daily functioning in school, at home or in their community. Hospitalization provides a secure environment to thoroughly examine all behavioral, emotional, social, and family needs that should be addressed to give the patient the best possible outcome. We provide assessment, diagnosis, conceptualization, therapeutic intervention, and rapid stabilization of acute psychiatric symptoms. Our ultimate goal is a smooth transition to less intensive, appropriate levels of follow-up care and support.
Our highly trained behavioral health professionals evaluate, diagnose and treat adolescents with a wide variety of conditions, including but not limited to:
- Depression and bipolar disorder
- Mood swings and anger
- Stress and anxiety
- Suicidal and self-harm thoughts or behaviors
- Bullying and victimization
- Poor self-esteem
- LGBTQI and sexuality issues
- Unusual perceptions, obsessions or compulsions
- ADHD or attention difficulties
- Grieving issues
We utilize a strength-based, trauma-informed and resiliency model of care, with a focus on deliberate and sensitive support for adolescents and their families as they learn new ways of understanding and managing challenges. A multidisciplinary treatment team of behavioral health professionals will work with the patient and their supports to alleviate symptoms through medication management, multiple therapy modalities and individualized behavioral plans. During treatment, the patient will receive structured interviews/assessments, family therapy, and individual and group therapies to effectively implement treatment recommendations.
