Today's teens face a variety of pressures and stressors at school, at home and in their social circles. The ups and downs of adolescence is a particularly challenging time.

An individualized plan of care

We address the unique mental health needs of adolescents using a customized plan that will use some of the following methods:
- Daily rounding by a Harvard trained Board Certified Child/Adolescent Psychiatrist
- Therapeutic comfort room for de-escalation
- Parental visitation daily on the unit
- 24 hour nursing care
- Licensed therapists experienced in working with adolescents
- Treatment plans implemented in partnership with family
- Seven groups a day, seven days a week

- Medical consultation upon admission and as needed thereafter
The Pavilion has designed a behavioral health and mental wellness program specifically for adolescents between 12 and 17 years old. To schedule an assessment, call (702) 916-5100.
