Programs and Services
The decision to find help for a child with behavioral or emotional issues is not an easy one. At Clarity Child Guidance Center, we would like to give you assurance you have made the right choice. The sooner your child can be evaluated and an individual treatment program designed, the sooner they will be on a path of hope and recovery.
Our first goal is to work with your family to identify the cause of the major problems facing your child. Your treatment program depends on the severity and specific needs of your child and the family’s wishes. it could include one or more of the following:
Many times, your child can be treated without having to be admitted to an on-campus program. With your help, our team of psychologists, psychiatrists and counselors will design an individual program to help resolve these problems. Services include psychological testing, psychiatric assessment as well as individual, group and family therapy. For your convenience, we offer several locations for outpatient services.
The term “acute” means severe or intense. If a child or teenager is in crisis, and at risk to harm himself or others, acute care is designed to help quickly stabilize the situation. It involves immediate evaluation and admission, 24-hour nurse and doctor attention, medication if needed and a plan for future treatment. Acute care can be accessed by phone 24/7.
On-campus 24-hour Treatment
When a child or teenager has trouble functioning well outside of a structured and monitored environment, on-campus 24-hour treatment may be the answer. It offers a full schedule of group therapies and activities in a secure, hospital-based setting.
On-campus Day Treatment
Children who experience significant problems at home and school but do not need inpatient treatment, may be able to receive treatment at Clarity Child Guidance Center during the day while still living at home. The program includes therapy, recreational therapy and life coaching plus regular attendance at our on-campus school so your child can keep up with their classes. To access this service, please call our admissions team.
If a child or adolescent needs rapid access to treatment, Clarity Child Guidance Clinic could be the solution. It offers several levels of care, including: outpatient and brief therapy, medication assessment and management, and day treatment. Children in need of help can be seen within days and directed to the level of care they need.
