What is an Adolescent Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility?

Residential treatment provides intensive care for youth with serious psychiatric, emotional and/or behavioral problems and is sometimes the next step for youth in need of further treatment following inpatient psychiatric care. We create awareness of behaviors and their consequences as well as teach boundaries and effective coping skills. We also strive to develop effective communication skills.

We are proud to offer an evidence-based program model that blends therapeutic best practices including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Treatment skills, Motivational Interviewing, Stages of Change, Trauma Informed Approach. All of our therapies follow trauma care best practices. Often those with severe behavioral health and substance abuse issues have experienced major trauma. Our trauma-informed care standards provide a safe, caring environment that empowers teens to heal.

Types of treatment can include:

  • Group Therapy
  • Individual Therapy
  • Family Therapy
  • Medication Management
  • Recreation Therapy
  • Socialization Therapy
  • Expressive Therapy
  • Treatment Team

Who should consider this program?

Adolescents with severe mental health issues should consider our residential treatment program to stabilize long-term destructive behavior. If adolescents are a danger to themselves or others, they may require short-term, acute, inpatient psychiatric care at Reno Behavioral Healthcare Hospital’s inpatient program. Residential treatment can often be the next step for youth in need of further treatment following inpatient psychiatric care.

Our patients undergo a comprehensive assessment by board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists when they enter the program. From there they undergo therapy and group therapy. If medications are involved, we create a medication management program. In substance abuse cases, detox may be required. Ultimately the goal is to return your adolescent to normal life.

Partial hospitalization programs include an onsite teacher to ensure that each teen does not fall behind on their schoolwork.
