At Polaris, we strive to provide the best, most effective treatment for troubled teens & adolescents. One of the many reasons for the success of our adolescent mental health program is our selective admissions policy. The number of teen residents is kept small by design to enable us to provide the proper level of attention and counseling and to ensure that the overall integrity of our healthy, positive environment is maintained.
Typically, the issues faced by the residents in our teen mental health program include significant levels of the following difficulties:
· Social and Emotional
To determine eligibility, the experienced team of professionals at our adolescent mental health facility will conduct an in-depth interview. Once it has been determined that your teen is a candidate for admission, phase two of the admissions process will begin. This phase includes the administrative work and documentation required to include your teen in our teenage residential treatment center.
The residents in our facility include boys and girls ages 13 through 17 at the time of admission.
Depending upon their history and diagnosis, your teen may be treated for:
· Anxiety disorders/Panic and Social phobias
· Bipolar Disorders
· Eating Disorders
· Substance Abuse and Dependence
· Dual Diagnosis
· Grief Issues
· Social Communication Disorder
· Emerging Personality Disorder
At Polaris, we will provide the personalized, in-depth, ongoing, comprehensive therapy they need to become healthy, productive individuals.
It is important for the parents and legal guardians of the residents in our program to understand that their child’s behavior is not necessarily a reflection of their parenting skills. The teen years are often a confusing and difficult time for many teens. Often, their behavior is driven by chemical and physical changes, which can cause the thoughts and emotions that become the focus of their need for specialized therapeutic strategies and intensive care.
Polaris Teen Center accepts most PPO insurances, including:
· Assurant Health
· Blue Cross/Blue Shield
· United Health Care
For teens who may not be the appropriate fit for our program, our Admissions professionals will make recommendations for adolescent mental health treatment that may be better suited to their needs.
Not all insurance programs are alike and some coverage may have restrictions or eligibility requirements. The best way to determine insurance eligibility, or to ask any admissions-related question, is to contact a Polaris admissions coordinator at (844) 836-0222 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
