Discover More About Our Mental Health Treatment Center

adolescent residential treatmentAs a parent, watching your child work through their mental health involves maintaining a balance between offering support and giving them space to grow. This is particularly the case for children and adolescents, who tend to close up with their growing sense of autonomy. It can feel daunting, even tiresome, to help your child get the mental health programs for teens they need in these formative years. Many parents turn to adolescent behavioral programs for assistance.

HillsidesCares is based in Los Angeles, California, and provides the highest level of psychiatric care without booking a visit to the hospital. One of the main benefits of choosing residential care is that it’s created specifically with adolescents and children in mind so that their treatment can be as effective as possible. If you are interested in more information about our residential treatment program, contact our HillsidesCares team today by calling 323.641.4842 or completing our online form. Our admissions team is ready to answer any questions you may have about our programs and services.

The Adolescent Residential Treatment Program

At HillsidesCares, we pride ourselves on treating mental health conditions and ensuring treatment is more accessible for everyone. One major consideration for any residential program is the atmosphere and culture on-campus. Our residents live in one of five cottages located on our beautiful 17-acre campus at HillsidesCares, where we treat residents in groups of 10 with a wide range of programs and services designed to help them get back on the right track. Our relatable team of experienced and supportive professionals provides a safe treatment environment with evidence-based services tailored by disorder type and severity. This program is residential only.

What Makes Residential Care at HillsidesCares Unique?

Our residential treatment program is unique. We don’t just treat adolescents. We support and accept children as young as six years old, while other mental health treatment centers won’t enroll any child younger than twelve. This difference is because our team of dynamic experts believes in the power of early intervention. When an adolescent experiences symptoms of a mental health disorder, the sooner they can receive comprehensive treatment and get back on the right path.

Once admitted to our residential care, clients will have treatment consisting of:

  • Communication-focused, integrative care
  • Individual, group, and family psychotherapy
  • Substance abuse screening, early intervention, and relapse prevention
  • Full-time nursing staff
  • Virtual psychiatry
  • Medication management
  • Skill building and therapeutic support groups for parents and guardians

Also, the trauma-responsive and therapeutic services in our residential treatment program include:

  • Assessment, crisis stabilization, and intensive interventions
  • Coordination with schools and community providers
  • Therapeutic groups for parents and youth
  • Support with accessing education while in treatment

Providing an Individualized Approach to Treatment

Finding the best treatment plan for each client is integral to our program. Before admission, we conduct analyses and a personalized evaluation of each new client. Because no two individuals are the same, we strive to address each specific issue with precision without sacrificing quality care. Treatment will be customized as necessary, whatever your child’s needs, goals, or strengths are. HillsidesCares is home to many specialty staff who can contribute to a personalized plan. Among those on our team are:
  • Crisis response specialists
  • Case managers
  • Behavior specialists
  • Nurses
  • Psychiatrists
  • Mental health clinicians
