Adolescent Day Program
At Hickory Trail Hospital, our team of child and adolescent specialists understands the unique needs of youth. The transition from childhood to adolescence and into adulthood can be a time of tension, difficulty and turmoil. During this transition, some youth withdraw from family and friends, some signs for concern are:
Unlike most adolescent Day programs, we offer an in-house, dedicated teacher who ensures adolescents do not fall behind in their schoolwork while receiving therapy. Our therapists work closely with families and guardians in order to maximize the gains made by our adolescent clients in their daily therapy work.
Adolescents participate Monday through Friday from 9:00am – 3:00 pm (Summer hours 9:00am – 1:30pm).
We work with adolescents who are 13 through 17 years of age.
Our diagnostic and treatment components include:
The treatment team consists of the patient, family members, the physician, the therapist/social worker, nurses, and mental health professionals. Anyone on the treatment team can address questions regarding a patient’s individualized treatment plan. The primary group therapist serves as the patient’s case manager. The therapist coordinates the individual treatment plan with the assigned physician to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment. The therapist also coordinates therapy sessions and family therapy, along with coordination of discharge and outpatient appointments.
From the moment a patient enters our program, aftercare planning begins in order to assure continuity of care and help them successfully adjust back to daily activities upon completion of treatment.
