Cedar Ridge Behavioral Hospital provides short-term, inpatient psychiatric services for adolescents, ages 12–17. Cedar Ridge can help those individuals that represent a danger to themselves, a danger to others or are in imminent danger of becoming a threat to the safety of themselves or others.
Inpatient treatment provides a structured and supportive treatment environment, which promotes self-acceptance and helps stabilize patients suffering from acute psychiatric illness. A multidisciplinary treatment team guides treatment, makes recommendations for interventions during treatment and appropriate after care treatment upon discharge. Our primary goal is to provide crisis intervention and stabilization services in a secure setting, ultimately aiming for a transition to a lesser level of care and return to full functioning in the shortest time possible.
In addition to acute inpatient treatment, Cedar Ridge Behavioral Hospital provides residential treatment to adolescents, ages 12–17. Our programs are designed to address the specific needs of adolescents struggling with emotional and behavioral issues. We treat individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, as well as general psychiatric disorders including bipolar, mood or oppositional defiance.
Many different people will be involved in your adolescent’s residential treatment. They will be assigned to a doctor who will see your teen every week. Your adolescent will be assigned to a therapist who will help them to make their treatment plan – the goals that your adolescent will work on while they are here. There will also be nurses, mental health techs (MHTs), and recreational therapy staff here every day to help your adolescent to accomplish your treatment goals.
Adolescents will be enrolled in the Mid-Del School District. They attend school every day during the regular school year.
