Residential Mental Health Treatment for Teens & Young Adults

Rosecrance provides residential treatment for mental health disorders at our Griffin Williamson Campus in Northern Illinois (Winnebago County). We offer residential mental health treatment and addiction rehabilitation treatment services for the following challenges facing teens as a primary diagnosis:

  • Mood disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Major depression
  • Anxiety disorder
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Poor impulse control
  • Substance abuse

General treatment modalities may include: personal medication management; individual and family therapies, group therapy, and recreational therapy.

Two Illinois board-certified child & adolescent psychiatrists, Dr. Thomas Wright and Dr. Carol Craig, lead the team of our Illinois treatment clinicians.

“There was a need in the community and we expanded to meet that need,” said Meghan Cook, Access Coordinator at the Rosecrance Griffin Williamson Campus.

“I can’t tell you how invigorating it’s been to be able to accommodate kids that we were forced to turn away before and provide them with quality care,” added Cook. “Our staff has been very diligent and intentional about rising to meet the needs of each and every individual client.”

When asked about how the new program is going, Sandra Knezevic, Rosecrance Addiction Counselor, described it as exciting, challenging and fulfilling.

“It means more opportunity for people to get help and get well and not have another door closed in their face,” said Knezevic. “I believe people deserve second, fourth, and even 17th chances. No life is ever worth giving up on or looking the other way.”

Another staff member who is passionate about the specialized services program is Dr. Carol Craig. Craig is board certified by the American board of Psychiatry and Neurology in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Her specialty areas include mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders such as generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder as well as disorders of early childhood such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and developmental delay disorders.

“So many of our clients have been suffering for years,” said Craig. “This program uses evidence based practices… to stabilize patients and impact change. It allows us to peel back the layers and get to the core by treating co-occurring disorders, mental health disorders and substance use disorders.”

Karly Bergstrom, Unit Specialist at Rosecrance Griffin Williamson Campus, sees first-hand how illnesses can affect the mind and body. Karly works with other staff members to create an individualized plan for clients that need extra accommodations that may differ from the standard schedule for the day. Whether it be an extra walk through the healing garden or five minutes alone in their room listening to music, Karly ensures that each client’s unique needs are taken into consideration.

“If there is a client that’s struggling due to a rough phone call or family session, I’ll pull them off the unit and we’ll take a walk or do something to help them cope. I try to get them to open up and figure out the root of the problem, why it causes so much anxiety and how we can move forward.”
