Adolescent Intensive Residential Program

Typically, our adolescent residents have not developed the usual coping skills necessary for age-appropriate life choices due to clinical needs or past experiences. Our intensive program provides them the supervision and support they need as they learn to live productively.

For this reason, we offer a goal-based treatment plan that integrates the objectives of both the resident and family. The active participation of parents and guardians in therapeutic sessions is critical to establishing expectations and measuring outcomes. Education consultants, community clinicians and previous educators are also important to this process for additional insights.

Treatment Framework

Adolescent residents take part in a variety of innovative family, group and individual therapy sessions and learn valuable life skills that create the framework they’ll need to transition into adulthood. Competencies for daily living – including maintaining a personal schedule, finances, decision-making and the importance of attending to daily responsibilities – are interspersed with regular educational curriculum, physical health and fitness, self-esteem and values to promote balance.

With the benefit of our small program size and a minimum commitment of 90 days in treatment, our team of caring professionals can quickly adapt both goals and structure in response to growth and challenges in order to maximize each individual’s journey to wellness. Length of stay beyond the initial, required six-month commitment is based on individual goal achievement.

Innercept’s in-depth continuum of services are designed to help adolescents ages 13 – 18 through every phase of change. Stabilization provides extra support during times of struggle, while our transition program helps them as they move toward independence.
