Our inpatient program for the acute care of youth (ages 10 – 17 years) emphasizes the healthy development of self-esteem and individual responsibility. The development of problem solving skills and coping skills is at the core of our inpatient care of youth.
Care is provided in a safe, secure, and nurturing environment. The multi-disciplinary treatment team consists of a psychiatrist, an advanced practice nurse, registered nurse, social worker, activity therapist, mental health technicians, and when indicated, a chemical dependency counselor.
Our team completes specific evaluations to initiate an individualized plan of care that includes medication management and a combination of individual, group, and family therapies. Therapeutic recreational activities and other programs are implemented to stabilize patients and create a foundation for care after discharge.
Discharge planning begins upon admission and the discharge coordinator provides for appropriate follow-up care after discharge.
Call our CARE Team at 812-476-7200 or 800-947-6789 to arrange for an assessment for your child.
Deaconess Cross Pointe offers outpatient consultations with our psychiatry staff including psychiatrists, psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners, and clinical nurse specialists. These psychiatric practitioners are trained in assessment and medication management for a variety of behavioral health conditions.
During a medication consultation the psychiatric practitioner will review medication history, allergies, medical conditions, current symptoms, length and severity of symptoms, family history, and other information to develop a full understanding of how the condition affects each patient. Based on the evaluation findings, the practitioner will determine if medication would be helpful and make recommendations for the appropriate type of treatment. Monitoring ensures the patient receives the maximum benefit of the medication while reducing any negative side effects that may occur.
