Inpatient Hospitalization for Adolescents

Inpatient treatment for adolescents at Hill Crest Behavioral Health Services provides a secure, structured, compassionate therapeutic environment for adolescents who need immediate crisis stabilization or short-term treatment for emotional, behavioral, or psychological issues. Inpatient treatment for teenagers is designed for males and females ages 12–18 who require treatment (or diagnosis) for mental health issues such as:

  • Suicidal and homicidal thoughts
  • Depression
  • Anxiety (i.e. panic attacks, phobias, obsessive behaviors)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Self-harming behaviors (i.e. cutting, burning, pulling out hair)
  • Psychological concerns related to trauma (i.e. nightmares, flashbacks, irritability)

We work with each adolescent patient to develop an individualized treatment plan that meets their unique needs. The goal of inpatient care is to stabilize symptoms, make medication adjustments and begin a plan for aftercare so patients can continue their treatment after discharge.

Patients we serve may be facing severe depression, sexual abuse issues, severe mood swings, impulse control disorders, anxiety disorders, ADHD, childhood trauma and more. Each of these very serious issues require professionals who know how to treat them, as well as people who care about helping your loved one get better.

Adolescent Inpatient Treatment for Behavioral Health

According to the World Health Organization, nearly half of all mental illnesses start before the age of 14, meaning that the earlier they seek treatment the better. Early detection is key, and teenage mental health services at an adolescent behavioral health facility can make a huge difference in the long term. 

Youth inpatient treatment at Hill Crest Behavioral Health Services can detect the exact issues that need to be treated while building the skills and providing the tools necessary to live a happier and healthier life.

Common Acute Mental Health Issues In Teens

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the most common mental health disorders for teenagers are depression and anxiety. The older a child gets, the higher rates of depression and anxiety that they tend to have. Depression and anxiety have continued to rise in teens, quickly making this one of the biggest mental health crises that we face in the United States today. 

Mental health issues do not just go away on their own, which means you shouldn’t delay treatment.
