Adolescent acute services at Brynn Marr Hospital offer around-the-clock care to teens ages 12 to 17 who struggle with behavioral or substance use issues. These short-term inpatient programs are designed to meet each adolescent’s cognitive, emotional, physical and social needs through an interdisciplinary treatment approach and individualized care. Treatment may address substance use as needed.
Treatment includes crisis intervention, stabilization and education on symptoms. We introduce positive coping methods to improve social and communication skills, including alternatives to the behaviors that resulted in the patient’s admission. Our goal is to help each teen identify the source of his or her feelings and teach appropriate means of self-expression.
Behavioral Health Treatment
For teens who struggle with depression, anxiety or any other behavioral health disorder, this highly structured program aims to stabilize their acute symptoms through a combination of intensive therapy, medication management and 24-hour care.
