The Adolescent Recovery Center (ARC) at The Ridge is designed to serve adolescents, ages 12-17 (or 18 if still in high school), suffering from substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. The ARC specializes in the treatment of adolescents whose substance abuse problems are manifested primarily through legal problems, school difficulties, relationship problems, and an inability to maintain sobriety. The ARC services are reimbursable by Medicaid and most commercial insurances, once approved. The expected length of stay is 28-55 days, but lengths of stay are modified to best serve each participant’s situation and need.
The Adolescent Inpatient Psychiatric Program at The Ridge is an intensive treatment program designed to first promote stabilization and then focus on enhancing thinking, emotion regulation, and behavioral skill sets. The program utilizes elements of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) for its inpatient males and females. Our DBT based program helps treat adolescents struggling with all mood disorders, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, panic, suicidal ideation, self-injurious behavior and trauma based issues. The Adolescent Inpatient Psychiatric Program services are reimbursable by Medicaid and most commercial insurances, once approved.
