JOURNEYS Adolescent Treatment

Through its JOURNEYS program, Intermountain Hospital provides 24-hour inpatient care for adolescents ages 12 through 17 whose acute symptoms require a safe and structured therapeutic environment. Our interdisciplinary team approach includes Child and Adolescent certified psychiatrists, counselors, psychiatric nurses, case managers and mental health technicians who work closely with the individual and the individual's family. Our goal is to help each adolescent regain the necessary skills to be in maximum control of their emotions and behaviors and be able to proceed through life with a minimum of difficulty. And because behavioral health issues vary, we tailor our inpatient services to meet the specialized needs of each patient.

TREATMENT

After admittance to the JOURNEYS program, patients are carefully assessed before being placed into one of five highly individualized programs.

Depression/Suicidality
Helps your child explore and identify the triggers for their depression, learn about self-esteem issues, and gain healthy stress management skills.

Self Esteem/Self-Harm
Focuses on self-directed, harmful behavior, addressing the causes, the addictive nature, and the recovery process for victims of self-mutilation.

Anger/Aggression
Covers the basics of anger management by identifying triggers for their feelings, typical responses, and the belief system that guides their actions.

Anxiety
Aids those who struggle with symptoms of panic and anxiety by helping the teen develop a "damage plan" for managing periods of stress.

CAST (Clean And Sober Teens)
Catered towards those adolescents who require intensive treatment for drug addiction, helping the patient learn ways to create a stronger, sober recovery environment.
