Inpatient Care for Kids & Teens

Rivendell of Arkansas offers inpatient psychiatric care for children and teens ages 4 to 17 struggling with emotional or behavioral issues such as anger, depression, trauma from abuse, suicidal or homicidal thoughts, impulsive or aggressive behaviors, and more. We have over 35 years of experience providing care for children and teens who are experiencing emotional crisis and turmoil. During this period, children and teens are still changing, adapting and growing, so it’s important to get them the help they need now to carve a path that leads to lifelong mental health and wellness. Length of stay can be as short as a few days but will be determined based on the severity of the patient’s needs.

Our clinical team made up of counselors, doctors, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals develops a unique treatment plan for each young patient based on their specific needs. Patients are invited to select from a menu of group therapy options specific to their goals, but the program options often include:

  • Psychiatric evaluation
  • Emotional stabilization
  • Behavioral intervention
  • Around-the-clock clinical observation
  • Medication management and access to medical treatment
  • Group, individual and family therapy
  • Recreational therapy
  • Coping skills for reducing anxiety and depression
  • Health and wellness education to improve overall health
  • Education services
  • Aftercare planning
