Adolescent Unit

Adolescent Unit

The Adolescent Unit is an innovative inpatient, group-based treatment program for individuals experiencing a mental health crisis with or without co-occurring substance abuse, including the need for detoxification. The unit serves patients between the ages of 13 and 17 (18 if still in high school).

Our staff consists of a team of fully dedicated psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurse practitioners, nurses and mental health counselors who are specifically trained and highly proficient in caring for youths and young adults.

We are equipped with a state-of-the-art facility which allows us to work closely with the patient, family, school and societal resources through a teleconferencing channel, helping to better facilitate the full treatment process.


Our program is designed to address the unique behavioral health challenges facing young adults. Programming is based on empirically supported treatment methods that include dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). With increased structure and support, patients acquire skills for more adaptive coping.

We are able to provide diagnostic and psychological assessments when clinically needed. Our goal is to understand and help stabilize the current crisis and to help patients feel more empowered and hopeful about their lives.
