Rivendell Behavioral Health Hospital’s Choices program treats a wide range of psychiatric issues in children ages 5 and older. Our patients receive treatment for depression, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, disordered thinking and behavioral issues in a secure, nurturing environment. Treatment focuses on developing self-control skills, strengthening self-esteem, resolving family conflicts and developing basic social skills. Our program often includes medication management with the goal of providing medical intervention to diminish the symptoms of your child’s illness.

Each child receives an individualized treatment plan that is based on thorough psychiatric evaluations and mental health assessments. Therapists work to quickly identify problems that are affecting your child’s behavior, and coach young patients to learn effective coping skills through an intense Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills training and group therapy.
