St. Charles, Missouri Premier Inpatient Treatment for Adolescents

The Stepping Stones behavioral health treatment program for adolescents at CenterPointe Hospital offers a unique adolescent inpatient program to help teens ages 12 through 17 who are struggling with emotional problems and substance abuse. CenterPointe provides an ideal place for teens who are struggling with the challenges faced by our youth today. Our physicians and clinicians have proudly served and successfully treated hundreds of teens and their loved ones facing crisis situations.

Each teen is immediately assessed and stabilized by our caring and competent team of psychiatrists, nurses, pediatricians, licensed social workers, and therapists. When the teen has been stabilized, we will work with the child and his or her family to create a plan of care.

Our adolescent treatment team has created a healing, stable, and safe environment that will allow the teen to recover, develop insights into his or her challenges, and learn the skills needed to lead a happy, healthy life. Each teen will be offered a variety of therapeutic techniques to assist in his or her recovery. These may include individual therapy, group therapy, life skills training, and family sessions. At CenterPointe, we’ll help your teen reach his or her maximum potential and heal from the challenges associated with being a teenager.

Our adolescent inpatient program treats teens who are facing some of the following conditions:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Major depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Hallucinations
  • Sexual acting out
  • Anger/rage
  • Severe ADHD
  • Erratic mood swings
  • Substance use and abuse
  • Repercussions of trauma
  • Self-injury or self-mutilation
  • Suicidal ideations and behaviors
  • Homicidal thoughts and behaviors
  • Other mental health disorders

I can’t thank the doctors and staff on the adolescent unit enough for helping my teenage son resolve his anger and confusion. He had lost all interest in school and was making poor decisions that could have led to permanent damage. I am so happy to have my son back!
