A multidisciplinary team provides 24-hour care to help stabilize patients living with an acute psychiatric illness. We help patients in crisis by establishing a treatment plan that can include medication management, intensive therapy and discharge planning. Our goal is to help patients regain functioning so they can transition to a lesser level of care in the shortest time possible.

Our residential treatment program serves children and teens, ages 5–17, in separate units. We can help patients struggling with emotional and behavioral issues such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress and other general psychiatric disorders. Our mission is to provide the long-term treatment your child needs in a compassionate, structured environment that includes schooling in the Mid-Del School District during the school year. A team of dedicated specialists deliver intensive, individualized treatment for your child so they can return home with improved social and coping skills, increased self-esteem and a brighter future.

Cedar Ridge Behavioral Hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission and licensed by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services.
