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. Contact us for a confidential no-cost assessment if you or someone you know is experiencing these types of issues.
