Longleaf Hospital is proud to offer comprehensive treatment for children, teenagers, adults and seniors suffering with mental health issues. Our inpatient programs include:
Children and Adolescent Treatment
Longleaf Hospital offers treatment for children and adolescents who are suffering from complex psychiatric disorders and co-occurring disorders. With our wide range of clinical expertise, our child and adolescent multidisciplinary treatment team helps to stabilize acute symptoms, identify core problems, and determine the next steps in the child or teen's recovery process. We offer in-depth assessments for each child or teen who comes to us for help so that we are able to treat all of the disorders the child or teen is facing, not simply the presenting problem.
Treatment goals for our children and adolescent patients involve crisis resolution, treating acute mental health conditions, create a treatment plan based around the child or teen's needs and the recommendations of our treatment team. We'll work hard to teach each child and teen who comes to us for help to develop and practice effective coping, communication, and emotional regulations. Your child or teen's treatment team will be assessing and reassessing the progress he or she makes during his or her stay with us and making any adjustments to the treatment plan as needed. Children and teens in our care will practice newly-learned skills in a scholastic atmosphere to make the adjustment back into their school as seamless as possible.
Adult Treatment for men, women, and seniors
Inpatient services for men, women and and seniors who are struggling with emotional problems and mental disorders provide an essential level of care that is designed to kick-start the long-term recovery process. At Longleaf Hospital, our inpatient treatment program allows you to escape from your current daily life and stressors and begin the process of recovery in a safe and supported environment.
Your plan of care will include a variety of holistic components designed to heal the whole you. We offer individual therapy to allow you to address the complications that have arisen in your life, as well as discussion about ways to fix the problems in your life. Our groups are a vital part of the healing process as they allow you the ability to interact with others who are facing similar challenges.
Longleaf offers family sessions that allow us the opportunity to work with your loved ones to educate them about your illness and that will help you and your loved ones to begin to reconnect in a safe, supportive atmosphere. Coming to us for help will also allow us to get your medications under control and adjusted so they're effective and help alleviate the symptoms of your disorder.
As a holistic treatment center that aims to heal your mind, body, and soul, we offer a variety of experiential therapies to compliment traditional therapies. These may include:
Family therapy is a very important part of your recovery so we aim to include your loved ones in family sessions multiple times a week.
During these sessions, we'll allow your loved ones the chance to share their feelings about your condition and teach them more about the your specific mental health disorder so that they better understand what you are going through. We'll also teach your loved ones ways that they can help you during your recovery.
When you call, one of our intake or community liaison specialists they will ask you a series of questions about your current condition and the issues that you are struggling with in order to determine if Longleaf Hospital would be a good fit for your personal treatment needs.
