Adolescent inpatient treatment at Behavioral Hospital of Bellaire provides an opportunity for adolescents ages 12 to 17 to learn and practice coping skills. These skills help to manage a wide range of behavioral, emotional and family problems. The patient, family, and referring health professionals are integral parts of our comprehensive treatment plan. Treatment includes group, family, recreational and developmental therapies, as well as medication management tailored to the adolescent.

The Objectives of adolescent inpatient treatment are:

  • To provide a safe haven for adolescents to focus on recovery free from external stressors and peer pressure and judgments
  • To provide treatment that is fresh, modern and appropriate to the adolescent population
  • To provide a structure similar to the school day to ensure smoother transitions from inpatient hospitalization, or our adolescent partial hospitalization program back to school
