Inpatient/Outpatient Programs

Clarity offers treatment that’s individual and personal. Clarity Child Guidance Center’s mental health facilities in San Antonio offer a full range of services including:

Inpatient Acute Care

If a child or adolescent is in crisis, and at risk to harm themselves or others, inpatient acute care is designed to help quickly stabilize the situation. It involves immediate evaluation and admission, 24-hour nurse and physician attention, medication if needed, and a plan for future treatment. This checklist is designed for professionals to determine if a patient is in crisis and should be seen immediately.
