The inpatient adolescent program at Garfield Park Behavioral Hospital provides intensive care to teens ages 12 to 17 who suffer from acute symptoms of a psychiatric or substance use issue. Our treatment approach utilizes positive reinforcement to build self-esteem, increase healthy behaviors, address limit setting and improve self-discipline.
Adolescents in this program learn to take responsibility for their behaviors and decision making. Through a focus on emotional regulation, promoting safety and relationship building, we strive to help patients return home or transition to a less intensive level of care as quickly as possible.
