Adolescent Residential at BNI Treatment Centers
The teen years can present unique challenges to their mental health and emotional well-being. Hormonal fluctuations, school-related pressures, social conflicts, and family dysfunction are just some of the factors that can play into psychological instability in adolescence. When a mental health condition, such as a personality disorder or mood disorder, causes so much distress that the teen can no longer function normally in daily activities or tasks, it may be advantageous for the teen to receive more focused attention in an adolescent residential treatment center like BNI Treatment Centers.
A residential mental health program offers a unique opportunity for utilizing the luxury of time to fine-tune treatments and target core issues in a more comprehensive manner. Residential treatment allows psychiatric and clinical staff to create a more tailored approach that addresses specific factors in the individual teen’s life, making a customized, relevant treatment plan that can result in significant insights and psychological breakthroughs in care.
When Adolescent Residential Care is Indicated
A teen may present with signs and symptoms that indicate a need for more targeted treatment and/or a step up from outpatient treatment. These signs and symptoms might include:
- A DSM-5 diagnosis with evidence of severe and present symptoms of that particular disorder
- Exhibiting persistent patterns of disruptive or destructive behavior
- Unable to perform daily tasks at home, school, or work
- Exhibiting psychiatric disturbance
- Difficulty in age-appropriate problem solving and adaptive functioning
