Adolescent Behavioral Services

Adolescents deserve special attention. Our program for pre-teens and teenagers ages 12 to 17 is based on the strong belief that mental health treatment is not one-size-fits-all, and the best care for this age group differs from what is considered proper treatment for an adult.

By treating pre-teens and teenagers separately, we give them the type of individualized attention they need.

Through our inpatient program, we support adolescents in a structured environment with continual use of positive reinforcement, constructive relationships and skill building. Our specialized treatment plans include individual, group and family therapy, as well as therapeutic recreational activities.

Patients are supervised by our board-certified or board-eligible psychiatrists and closely monitored by a medical physician to ensure overall health and well-being.


  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy that incorporates expressive arts and mindfulness
  • Therapeutic community interaction
  • Individual family therapy
  • Chemical dependency and recovery education therapy
  • Trauma therapy that involves understanding, recognizing and responding to all types of trauma
  • Skill groups focusing on self-regulation strategies
  • Daily monitoring with medical physician oversight to ensure overall health and well-being
  • Discharge planning and continuation of outpatient care*

* Oceans Healthcare exceeded the national average quality scores for inpatient psychiatric facilities as determined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid for post-discharge care planning and ensuring patients have a continuum of care beyond an Oceans facility.



In addition to traditional inpatient treatment, Oceans Behavioral Hospital offers an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for adolescents needing part-time therapy. For students requiring the structured environment of a typical school day, our IOP and PHP options offer a daily routine built around each individual's needs providing a consistent schedule while students are out of school.

Oceans facilities accept Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare and most private insurance.

We accept voluntary and involuntary admissions. Our board-eligible or board-certified psychiatrists must accept patients prior to admission.
