Board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists treat patients using evidence-based therapies that can include:

  • Group and family therapy
  • Psychoeducational groups
  • Recreational therapy
  • Patient and family education
  • Medication management

Our treatment goals for adolescents include promoting a sense of hope and stability for our patients. A multidisciplinary treatment team, patients, their families and referring health professionals work together to create a treatment plan customized for each individual’s needs. We introduce a range of techniques designed to help patients more effectively cope with life stressors to help increase personal resiliency and, ultimately, a stronger family system.

Inpatient Program
Coral Shores Behavioral Health provides 24-hour inpatient treatment in a secure setting for adolescents ages 12–17. Throughout the program, the staff encourages young patients to be respectful of themselves and each other, and to focus on their treatment.

A psychiatrist-led multidisciplinary treatment team guides the treatment program for each teen. The length of stay can vary from a few days up to a week, and a level behavior system allows the adolescents in our care to earn privileges. Family visitation is strongly encouraged and patients can make phone calls daily. Patients may also send and receive mail, and they have access to a patient advocate who they may speak with at any time.

Partial Hospitalization Program
Partial hospitalization is available for adolescents who need a structured program following an inpatient stay, or for when typical outpatient therapy is not enough. This program provides day treatment including individual and group therapy, and psychoeducational groups. Program hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and lunch is provided.

Intensive Outpatient Program
This program is designed for patients who are functioning well in their everyday lives but still need more intensive therapy than traditional weekly counseling. The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) allows patients to engage in structured treatment while also attending school.
