Adolescent Residential Program in Indianapolis, IN

Our adolescent residential program offers structured treatment for males who have undergone inpatient treatment for psychiatric concerns. Calling us today to learn if this program is the right fit for you or your loved one.

Program Overview

Male adolescent residential program overview

At Options Behavioral Health, male children and adolescents who need comprehensive psychiatric services can receive this care in our Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF).

Instead of an intimidating hospital-like environment, our 28-bed center is a warm and supportive residential setting where compassionate professionals provide the highest quality of care to male adolescents who meet the following patient profile:

  • Ages 11 to 21
  • MMR, DDR, or on the autism spectrum
  • IQ in the 50-75 range

In order for a young person to be admitted to Options PRTF, he must meet the following criteria:

  • Has been treated in an inpatient program within the previous six months
  • Did not meet treatment goals in an outpatient program within the last 12 months
  • Has been diagnosed with a severe mental illness and/or multiple co-occurring disorders

Clients do not require a court order for placement to be admitted to our program, as they can be placed by their parents or legal guardians.

Types of Treatment

Therapies and types of treatment in the male adolescent residential program at Options Behavioral Health System in Indianapolis, IN

Treatment in PRTF begins with a thorough assessment that allows the specially trained members of our multidisciplinary treatment team to accomplish the following objectives:

  • Identify the young person’s needs
  • Determine his optimal learning style
  • Get to know more about him as a unique individual

This assessment process, along with input from family members when appropriate, culminates in the creation of a personalized treatment plan that will best meet the young person’s unique needs.

Each week, male children and adolescents in the PRTF program receive a combination of therapeutic treatment services, including the following:

  • Psychiatric care
  • Nursing care
  • Individualized therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Medication management (as needed)
Academic Instruction

PRTF clients also receive academic instruction and support at our onsite school. We also integrate opportunities for interactions with peers, staff, and family as much as possible throughout the day to enable each young person to improve his social abilities in a safe and supportive setting.

Our Goal

Treatment goal of the male adolescent residential program at Options Behavioral Health System

The ultimate goal of PRTF is to constantly develop and reinforce adaptive and appropriate behaviors. We employ a predictable routine, regular schedules, and a consistent approach so each participant knows what to expect and does not experience the stress that can result from a lack of predictability.

At Options Behavioral Health, we view each young person who is entrusted into our care as a unique individual with exceptional skills, abilities, and potential. The skilled and dedicated professionals who staff the PRTF program work diligently to help young people reach their greatest potential by improving their behavioral, social, and learning capabilities.
