Adolescent Psychiatric Treatment

The teen counseling and behavioral health services at The Meadows Psychiatric Center and Universal Community Behavioral Health help to meet the needs of adolescents who are experiencing difficulties with relationships or behaviors at home, school or within their peer groups.

A compassionate staff at The Meadows Psychiatric Center, located in Centre Hall, Pennsylvania, provides a supportive, nurturing and structured environment for each teenager at our adolescent psychiatric inpatient treatment center. The individual needs of each teenager are recognized and are the basis for his or her treatment plan.

Our teen counseling and behavioral health services emphasize the sense of community and strengths of each individual. Peer support and feedback help individuals learn to respect themselves and each other. The various group and school activities provide individuals with opportunities for social interaction and cooperation.

Receiving needed treatment should not mean that your loved one misses out on many of the essential aspects of being a teenager, and we recognize and support that. Our evidence based adolescent treatment program at The Meadows Psychiatric Center has helped countless teens.

Adolescent Inpatient Acute Care

Getting help at an adolescent psychiatric facility is a big decision, but we are here to assist and give your loved one the tools and level of care necessary to work towards recovery. Our acute inpatient mental health services at our treatment center are designed with your teen in mind, recognizing that they are a unique person with their own individual needs.

Inpatient adolescent behavioral health is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. No one person is the same, and neither is their journey to recovery. Our initial assessment identifies their needs and builds a treatment plan around them that works with their strengths and on their strengths.

What does the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Say?

Your teen’s issues are not uncommon, and you are not alone.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that child and adolescent mental health problems are quite common, with 6.1 million receiving an ADHD diagnosis, 4.5 million portraying a diagnosed behavior problem, 4.4 million being diagnosed with anxiety and 1.9 million being diagnosed with depression. This is not an isolated issue, and millions of teens deal with mental health issues every day. 

Early Diagnosis Works.

The most important finding from the CDC on mental illness and adolescents, however, is that early diagnosis and mental health services designed for their age make a massive difference in the lives of adolescents with mental health disorders. Teenage inpatient treatment at an acute, inpatient mental health facility is an important facet in recovery.

Don’t wait to reach out for help, because every second counts.

Putting off getting help will only make things worse, and adolescent inpatient mental health treatment can lead to improved quality of life for your loved one. Getting to the root of the problem in adolescents and young adults is key when it comes to improving your loved one’s life in the short term with an eye on providing them with the tools necessary for long term improvement and success.
