Acute Hospitalization Program

Foundations Behavioral Health provides acute inpatient hospitalization for children and adolescents experiencing a psychiatric or an emotional disorder that impacts daily functioning in the school, home, or the community. The Inpatient Programs provide assessment, diagnosis, conceptualization, therapeutic intervention, and rapid stabilization of acute psychiatric symptoms resulting with a smooth well planned transition to less intensive, appropriate levels of follow-up care and support.

Our highly trained behavioral health professionals evaluate, diagnose and treat children and 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; self-harm behaviors (e.g., cutting)
* Bullying and victimization
* Poor self-esteem
* LGBTQI and sexuality issues
* Psychosis / unusual perceptions; obsessions; compulsions
* Trauma
* ADHD or attention difficulties
* Grieving issues

A multidisciplinary treatment team will work with the patient and their supports toward symptom resolution though 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.

In working and engaging with families we provide education about their loved one’s diagnoses and treatment options. As a family-centered facility, we also offer patient and family resources to enhance individuals’ understanding of mental health issues and encourage participation in both Family Sessions and Family Education Days so that families can learn about the evidence based practices we utilize, and what to expect from the treatment process.

Outside community agencies and referral sources working with the patient are important members of the treatment team network, and we maintain their involvement through a formally organized communication process. Members of the treatment team regularly communicate with the family, school personnel, social workers, and other referral sources to obtain information, provide progress reports, and plan for discharge.

Foundations Behavioral Health has two distinct acute hospitalization units.

The Children’s Acute Unit is designed specifically to meet the individual needs of children as young as five through age 12. Our highly trained Children’s Program staff are aware that children experiencing psychiatric illness and behavioral health problems need highly individualized treatment to meet their psychiatric, behavioral, developmental, and family challenges.

The Adolescent Acute Unit provides a comprehensive and fully integrated psychiatric program for adolescents ages 12-17. 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.
