Levels Of Care

Sovereign Health understands that students will require different levels of care, depending on their specific needs and presenting condition. Comprehensive medical and biopsychosocial assessments are completed by our multidisciplinary treatment team of psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, case managers and other health care providers during the intake process. During this time, adolescents are diagnosed and assessed for the primary condition in addition to any co-occurring medical or psychological conditions. An individualized treatment plan is created that is based on the student’s specific needs.

The substance abuse treatment program offered to adolescents at Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego offers different levels of care to male and female adolescents who have substance use disorders, mental disorders and co-occurring conditions. These levels of care include:

  • Residential Treatment Center (RTC): General and specialized nonmedical services are provided to adolescents 24 hours a day by trained staff.
  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): This medically supervised program provides comprehensive and intensive therapeutic clinical services. PHP is a step down from inpatient care, and serves as a transitional treatment for students after an inpatient program in lieu of continued hospitalization.
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): This person-centered treatment programming consists of scheduled treatment and group sessions.
