Giving your family the help it needs to restore what’s been lost

At the Rosecrance Griffin Williamson Campus, we help families reclaim their hope and relationships while learning to manage a loved one’s condition by taking a practical, honest approach. We help teens with mental health and substance use disorders learn healthy behaviors and prepare for lasting recovery and life beyond treatment.

Here’s how the program works

At Rosecrance, each client is cared for by a team of specialists who have committed their careers to supporting the unique needs of adolescents. Together, the team designs an individualized treatment plan that draws on the expertise of therapists and counselors, physicians, psychiatrists, nurses, recreation and experiential therapists, and chaplains. Our professional staff uses many effective therapies to help your teen. These include medication management, individual and family therapies, group therapy, and recreational therapy. Your teen learns to develop:

  • Assertiveness
  • Social skills
  • Communication skills
  • Healthy emotional regulation
  • Creative expression
  • Improved interpersonal relationships
  • Increased self-awareness and mindfulness

Adolescent clients may participate in specialized groups to address depression, mood management, and other concerns. We also teach age-appropriate life skills using:

  • Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT): CBT is an evidence-based psychotherapy technique designed to address symptoms of anxiety and depression by recognizing emotions and triggers and helping develop coping skills to better manage mood and anxiety.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): DBT is an evidence-based psychotherapy technique that helps teens manage intense emotions related to close relationships.
  • Motivational interviewing that applies a collaborative, person-centered approach to strengthen motivation to change and improve using feedback and coaching.
  • Drug and alcohol abuse prevention

Other therapeutic activities include:

  • Art
  • Horticulture
  • Yoga
  • Ropes course
  • Fitness
  • Team building
  • Soothing room
  • Mindfulness practice

Enhanced programming for teens with mood disorders

Rosecrance has recognized the need for more specialization to address the needs of youth who have experienced multiple acute hospitalizations, and for whom outpatient treatment and other treatment hasn’t been successful.

We have enhanced the programming and clinical competencies at our residential campus to provide deeper resources for clients with mood disorders, especially those with chronic depression and a history of suicidality.

This program addresses the complex behavioral health challenges of the adolescent clients who are seeking our help and provides an opportunity to engage clients in services as quickly as possible. It complements expanded mental health programming and our history of expertise in treating substance use disorders.

Highlights include:

  • An intensive, mixed gender 45-to-60-day program
  • Deeper psychiatric involvement
  • Increased emphasis on DBT in both individual and group therapy
  • CBT interventions around self-harming behaviors
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for treatment-resistant depression, when medically appropriate
  • Weekly family therapy

Frequently asked questions about Rosecrance’s mental health treatment for teens

The first step to become a Rosecrance patient is the screening/assessment we use to gather vital information. We will talk with you, your teen, and possibly other family members. We may ask you for medical or psychiatric records that can help us ensure that we deliver the best possible treatment. We will also help verify your insurance benefits.

Our review may include records from past or current hospitalizations, psychiatric evaluations, medical records, and any other information that will help Rosecrance deliver the care your teen needs.

Today, 1 in 5 adolescents experiences a mental health disorder. Some teens struggle with anxiety, excessive worry, depression, or have trouble managing emotions. Others may drop out of school, run away or have conflict with their families. Rosecrance believes in teaching the skills teens need to manage stressors and be healthy.

Our access team will work with you and your insurance company to verify benefits prior to admission into our program. Rosecrance is an in-network provider for many insurance plans and Rosecrance will work with your insurance plan to verify all benefits. We know that insurance coverage and plans can be challenging or even confusing, so our trained staff will help you and your family clarify your benefits.

There is no set length of stay. Each client has unique strengths and needs. Some teens are more willing than others to work through their individualized treatment plan. Insurance coverage can also affect the length of treatment. Our utilization review team and clinical staff work together closely to make sure we’re giving current and relevant clinical assessments to the insurance companies if and when the coverage is up for review.

No. We never use any form of mechanical restraint or seclusion. We do work with the Crisis Prevention Institute, a program that uses de-escalation to safely defuse any crisis situation.

Yes. All clients will see a medical staff member within 72 hours of admission. The client will then meet with the psychiatrist as needed. This could be weekly or multiple times a week, based on the individual client’s needs.

Yes, it’s important for family members to be involved in their loved one’s treatment. We offer a family program where family members receive support and education on mental health symptoms. We also ask family members to get involved in weekly family sessions and discharge plans.

Our clinicians and family members will work together to identify programs in the client’s community that will support your teen’s continuing health and well-being. It’s vital to make the transition back home smooth for both the client and the family.
