Reno Behavioral Healthcare Hospital offers treatment for adolescents (ages 12-17) with mental health and/or substance use issues. Featuring both Inpatient and Outpatient treatment, our program creates a structured environment that encourages rapid recovery and a return to the community for follow-up care as needed.
Common Issues Treated
Being a teenager presents many social challenges and changes, and Reno Behavioral Healthcare Hospital recognizes this. Below are some mental health issues a teen may encounter during their adolescent development:
- Bipolar Disorder
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Substance use and Addiction to Drugs and Alcohol
- Suicidal/Homicidal Thoughts
Our teen mental health treatment approach includes:
- Attention to the skills of daily living
- Interpersonal skills
- Family relationships
- Solutions-Focused Therapy
- Trauma Informed Care
Our team recognizes that young people struggling with mental illness and addiction can be extremely vulnerable. That’s why we provide Trauma-Informed Care best practices that promote a culture of safety, empowerment, and healing.
Adolescents are always hospitalized separately from adults. Our treatment team provides 24-hour monitoring, treatment, and stabilization in a safe and secure environment. Our highly structured and comprehensive inpatient treatment program includes:
- Group Therapy
- Medication Management
- Recreation Therapy
- Socialization Therapy
- Expressive Therapy
Adolescent Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility
Residential treatment provides intensive care for youth with serious psychiatric, emotional and/or behavioral problems. Residential treatment is sometimes the next step for youth in need of further treatment following inpatient psychiatric care where they can continue treatment in a structured, safe and caring environment by trained staff. Length of stay is usually one to three months depending on the needs of the individual.
Outpatient Programs: Partial Hospitalization Program
We are proud to offer the community's only Partial Hospitalization Program for adolescents. This outpatient program provides needed treatment and therapy without the overnight stay. Patients participate in group therapy, as well as educational and family group sessions. Attendance is six hours a day, Monday through Friday, ranging from two to four weeks. The program includes lunch and an on-site teacher to ensure participants don't fall behind in their studies.
