Behavioral health is just as important as physical health, particularly in adolescents. As teenagers, we are still learning about our identity, forging habits and setting the stage for the rest of our lives. For this reason, the earlier behavioral problems are addressed, the better.
Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego offers adolescent patients numerous levels of care, including residential treatment center (RTC), partial hospitalization program (PHP) and intensive outpatient program (IOP).
Residential treatment, or inpatient treatment, is a level of care that involves full-time residence in one of Sovereign’s Rancho San Diego residences. Adolescent patients in the residential program may be struggling with addiction, mental illness, behavioral disorders or co-occurring disorders. All patients receive personalized, evidence-based care that can include medication management, therapy and cognitive remediation training.
We offer comfortable living arrangements as well as specialized services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Educational programs are also available to help patients stay up-to-date on schoolwork.
Our inpatient treatment program is designed for adolescents with severe addiction and mental health issues who may or may not pose a risk to themselves. Residential treatment is our most intensive program, followed by partial hospitalization and outpatient treatment.
Partial Hospitalization Program
Partial hospitalization (PHP) is a patient level of care that provides adolescents with intensive, evidence-based treatment in a medically supervised environment. Patients in our PHP level of care can receive care for substance addiction, mental illness and behavioral illness. We offer diagnostic evaluation, active treatment and maintenance therapy, depending on the severity of the symptoms.
Sovereign’s PHP level of care is designed for adolescents who are experiencing increased symptomatology but are not actively a risk to themselves. PHP is more intensive than intensive outpatient treatment, but less intensive than our residential treatment program. Adolescents can use PHP as a step-down treatment from residential treatment or can start their treatment at the PHP level.
