Adolescent Stabilization & Assessment Unit to admit clients in Iowa March 1

Rosecrance Jackson Centers is pleased to announce that beginning March 1, 2020, the Adolescent Stabilization & Assessment Unit will be admitting clients.

Like so many providers, Rosecrance Jackson Centers has balanced the needs of clients with the availability of quality, highly trained staff to provide safe and expert clinical care. During the past several weeks Rosecrance Jackson Centers has welcomed and trained many clinical professionals committed to serving adolescents ages 12-18 who are experiencing decreased functionality due to a mental health crisis or substance use.

Some features of the Rosecrance Jackson program include:

  • Intensive subacute behavioral treatment in a licensed, accredited, highly structured 24-hour supervised program.
  • For adolescents who would benefit from a short-term structured stabilization setting and do not require intensive clinical treatment in an acute inpatient psychiatric setting.
  • Services include initial therapy and ongoing assessment, case management, medication management, family support and referral, and linkage to community resources.

“It is such a privilege to provide this critical service to adolescents in our region,” says Annie Fridh, PsyD, president of Rosecrance Jackson Centers. “Stabilization and assessment are the necessary first steps in successful treatment, and we have the resources and clinical staff to meet those needs.”
