How We Help

Types of treatment in our adolescent inpatient program in Murfreesboro, TN

Treatment within our adolescent inpatient program is personalized according to the specific needs of each young person who has been entrusted to our care. All adolescents will receive a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, a medical evaluation, 24-hour nursing care and assessment, and an interdisciplinary approach to individualized treatment.

Programming on the adolescent inpatient unit incorporates a trauma-informed care approach with evidence-based modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). Based on their individualized treatment plan, adolescents who participate in our inpatient treatment program may receive the following services:

Medication management: The symptoms of some behavioral health disorders can be relieved with the appropriate medication prescribed by a psychiatrist. When indicated, medication management is available. Adolescents will have access to experienced psychiatrists who can recommend and prescribe medication if appropriate for their condition.

Individual therapy: Individual therapy sessions conducted by a social worker or nurse practitioner may be scheduled as needed during your child’s admission. These can be an opportunity for adolescents to process their experiences, address issues that they may be unwilling to discuss in a group setting, and receive focused feedback from an experienced professional.

Group therapy: Group therapy is a fundamental component of our adolescent inpatient program. Groups provide opportunities for adolescents to develop and practice important skills, share their insights, and learn from others. A typical day features five varied groups led by nursing staff, a nutritionist, a recreational therapist, an art therapist, an occupational therapist, or a social worker.

Family therapy: When an adolescent struggles with a behavioral health disorder, the entire family can be impacted. Parents and other caregivers can be invaluable sources of support during and after a child’s time in our adolescent inpatient program. For these reasons, at least one family session will be scheduled during your child’s stay as part of their personalized treatment plan.

During these sessions, you can gain valuable information about your child’s progress, discuss issues that impact your family, and learn how to support your child once they discharge to a lower level of care. During the family meeting, we discuss a safe discharge plan that will help continue your child’s progress. As part of the discharge plan, the treatment team will ensure that you are connected to the services and supports that are right for your child and family.

While in our program, adolescents also engage in recreational activities in a gymnasium and outdoor courtyards when clinically appropriate during their stay.

I wanted to say how AMAZING TrustPoint was. My doctor was fantastic, he not only was concerned for me but also my wife and daughter. My social worker was so easy to talk to and was so caring. Thank you all for being so supportive and kind in our time of turmoil.
