Our treatment programs for teens aged 12-17 include outpatient and inpatient mental health services that target your loved one’s specific needs in a structured environment. Mental health issues in adolescents can negatively impact their future, and our treatment team understands the unique challenges that teens face and the importance of building skills that carry over into their life after treatment.

Austin Oaks Hospital Adolescent Treatment Program

Individuals experiencing serious behavioral disturbance or an inability to function at home or school may be appropriate for treatment. Each patient is provided with a variety of opportunities to learn new skills and to achieve success. Treatment consists primarily of group, family and individual therapies. Family therapy is an integral part of treatment and family members are encouraged to address problems and frustrations that have contributed to the current crisis.

The Adolescent Program utilizes the peer group to bring about change, and places the focus of treatment on helping the adolescent develop a positive self-image, appropriate socialization skills and healthy communication. The treatment team emphasizes the importance of learning to accept responsibility for individual behavior and developing healthy modes of interaction with others.
