Inpatient Adolescent Services: Mental Health Programs for Teens In Reno, NV

Reno Behavioral Healthcare Hospital offers behavioral health treatment programs for adolescents. Our adolescent patients are between 12 and 17 years old and struggle with mental health and substance abuse issues. When an adolescent requires behavioral health treatment, parents should know that the difficulties their teen faces are often not reflective of a parent’s failing or the fault of any particular individual. Adolescent mental health issues are more common than many people think, and families can access treatment options at teenage mental health facilities.

At our behavioral health facility for teens in Reno, Nevada, we customize treatments for each teen’s unique needs.


Teenagers face many challenges as their bodies and minds develop, and Reno Behavioral Healthcare Hospital recognizes this reality. Below are some common mental health issues that a teen may encounter during their adolescent development:

  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Psychosis
  • Substance use and addiction to drugs and alcohol
  • Suicidal or homicidal thoughts

Comprehensive care for teens who struggle with behavioral health

Our inpatient programs and outpatient services for teens create a structured environment and encourage rapid recovery. Additionally, we strive to help our patients achieve lasting results through follow-up care programs, support groups, and ongoing therapy sessions. Our approach towards teen mental health treatment also includes:

  • Attention to the skills of daily living and building independence
  • Keeping up with schoolwork and building study skills
  • Developing interpersonal skills
  • Building healthy family relationships
  • Solution-focused therapy
  • Trauma-informed care methods

At Reno Behavioral Healthcare Hospital, we understand that each teen is unique and that each teen requires personalized care for their behavioral health challenges. Our comprehensive care programs allow teens to start their journey towards improved mental health in a way that works for themselves and their families.

Trauma-informed care for adolescents

Our team recognizes that young people who struggle with behavioral health issues and substance abuse problems can be extremely vulnerable and may have experienced significant trauma. Respecting those vulnerabilities and experiences, we follow trauma-informed care best practices. Trauma-informed care methods provide an environment that promotes safety, empowerment, and healing for teens undergoing treatment. Within such an environment, teens can work on managing and overcoming the harmful influences of traumatic events and experiences.

Adolescent Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility

Residential Treatment provides intensive care for youth with ongoing psychiatric, emotional, and behavioral health needs. Residential programs are sometimes the next step for teens and young adults who need additional treatment following inpatient psychiatric care. Residential treatment programs allow teens to continue treatment in a structured, safe, and caring environment under 24/7 supervision by trained staff. Depending on the needs of the individual, a typical stay is usually between one to three months.

Partial hospitalization outpatient programs for teens

We are proud to offer northern Nevada’s only partial hospitalization program for adolescents. This outpatient program provides needed treatment and therapy without the overnight stay. Patients in our partial hospitalization program spend approximately six hours a day each weekday in group therapy sessions. A typical partial hospitalization program lasts between two to four weeks. Additionally, families take part in educational sessions to learn how to best support their teens. Partial hospitalization programs include lunch and an onsite teacher to ensure that each teen does not fall behind on their schoolwork.
