Adolescence is a time of development, transformation and self-discovery. It is a time when young people learn to be autonomous and responsible. For many young people, the challenges of teenage years, the stress of peer pressure and the natural changes in their body chemistry can intensify mental health issues, such as underlying depression, anxiety, mood instability, trauma and substance abuse or family conflicts.
The Adolescent Inpatient Program treats adolescents ages 12-17. The program is designed to provide a highly structured and supportive environment for adolescents so they can begin to identify these challenges, better handle frustrations and choose constructive, healthy alternatives.
Families are encouraged to be actively involved in the treatment process. Our team of professionals seeks to understand the family’s view of the patient’s situation and to provide education and explanation on the teen’s difficulties.
A comprehensive assessment, a thorough treatment plan, and an accurate understanding of available resources ensure that each adolescent treated at Fremont Hospital will be provided with the individualized care and services needed to follow the path towards recovery.
All school-age children are supported in keeping up with their school work while hospitalized by attending our daily, on-site school program, led by a Fremont Unified School District teacher. Additionally, they participate in a very structured treatment program that includes structured groups, skills groups, recreational therapy and family therapy.
Our trained staff is available by telephone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assess an individual in crisis and arrange admission to the appropriate level of care. Confidential assessments and referrals are available free of charge. Whatever the need, day or night, quality care is a phone call away. Call 888-796-1101 today for a no-cost assessment.
