Treatment for Adolescents

When adolescents, ages 12 to 18, experience severe emotional crisis or struggle with ongoing behavioral issues, parents can turn to Kempsville Center for Behavioral Health for specialized care. Our highly structured acute inpatient and Partial Hospitalization treatment programs focus on helping children deal with feelings of depression, anxiety, anger and other mood and/or behavior disorders. We also offer a trauma-informed residential treatment program for adolescents who have had difficulty with more traditional therapy methods.

Adolescent Inpatient Treatment

We provide inpatient hospitalization for adolescents, ages 12 to 18, who are in a mental health crisis. Following an initial assessment and crisis stabilization, our staff, led by an adolescent psychiatrist develops individualized treatment programs for each patient.

Adolescent Residential Care

Our residential treatment program features age-specific units for adolescent boys and girls, ages 11 to 17, and is conducted in a therapeutic setting to help address a wide-range of mental health needs or substance use disorders. Residential treatment can be the best option for teens that have persistent mental health treatment needs, despite ongoing involvement in therapy.

Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

For patients not requiring an inpatient level of care, Kempsville Center for Behavioral Health provides a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) as an outpatient service for adolescents, ages 12 to 18. PHP addresses the developmental, emotional and psychiatric concerns of each patient through a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy focus.
