Partial Hospitalization

Adolescents – Inpatient

Modern life can take a toll on adolescents in our community. Intensifying demands from family, friends, community and school can become more than they can handle. Often, a lack of effective coping mechanisms can result in acute psychiatric, emotional and/or substance abuse problems that require expert treatment. The professionals at South Oaks Child and Adolescent Center of Excellence (located on the Nassau/Suffolk border on Long Island, New York), are empathetic to the unique needs of adolescents and have developed highly effective treatments that empower patients to manage their symptoms and attain personal goals.

Inpatient Program

The Adolescent Inpatient Program is designed for individuals ages 13 through 18 who experience acute symptoms of psychiatric disorders and emotional illness, as well as substance abuse or dependence. These can be disorders or illnesses such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), anger management, bipolar-related challenges and drug and alcohol abuse.

Treatment for adolescents follows two separate tracks: psychiatric treatment or a combination of psychiatric treatment and substance abuse treatment (co-occurring disorders). Each focuses the adolescent on specific individualized goals aimed at reducing negative symptoms and motivating the individual towards personal and community responsibility. This occurs within a supportive therapeutic environment where individual and family assessments guide the course of treatment and the continuation of care.

It is important that our patients are also able to meet their educational requirements during their stay. Classes are held on-site by certified Educational Professionals to maintain academic standards during inpatient treatment.

To ease the transition back into the community from the inpatient program, South Oak’s Child and Adolescent Center of Excellence is one of only two facilities in Suffolk County that offers a partial hospitalization program as part of its continuum of care.

Visiting hours are available.
