Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient Hospitalization for Children

Considering inpatient hospitalization for your child may feel scary. At Rivendell Behavioral Health Hospital, we’re here to help you every step of the way. Inpatient treatment for children at Rivendell begins with a thorough psychiatric evaluation and mental health assessment so that we can be sure to tailor treatment to meet your child’s needs. Therapists at Rivendell work quickly to identify issues that are affecting the behavior of concern.

Once your child begins treatment with us, we teach them effective coping alternatives based on intense Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills training and group therapy. Treatment at Rivendell focuses on helping children develop self-control skills, strengthen self-esteem, resolve family conflicts and develop basic social skills. Our program often includes medication management with the goal of providing the medical intervention needed to diminish the symptoms of the illness.

We integrate strategies to increase commitment for positive action and motivation for change in the treatment approach, and we develop safety plans with alternate coping skills for young patients to help ensure a successful transition home.

Multidisciplinary treatment is provided by a psychiatrist, an advanced practice nurse and nursing staff, a licensed mental health therapist, a dietician and a recreational therapist.

Case managers are available to assist you in better understanding your child’s treatment options, discharge planning, aftercare needs and working with insurance carriers. The case manager will coordinate communication needs with the professionals you rely on at home, with your permission.

No one should have to face a crisis alone. Contact us to learn how Rivendell Behavioral Health Hospital can help.
