Specialized Care for Young Women

Teenage girls and young women face unique challenges as they develop physically and emotionally, which can make treating any behavioral or mental health issues more complicated. 

Valle Vista Health System’s teen residential treatment program for girls ages 12 to 18 meets them at this critical junction and provides much-needed mental and behavioral health services. 

Valle Vista Specialized Care for Young Women

Our Residential Treatment for Teen Girls

We provide a therapeutic environment to seek treatment for mental health issues such as bipolar disorder, severe depression, schizophrenia and even eating disorder treatment.

We also treat young women who are battling issues like PTSD, self-harm/mutilation/cutting or suicidal thoughts as a result of trauma from abuse or trafficking.

The ultimate goal of our residential treatment for girls is to teach young women how to make safe, healthy choices when dealing with anger, sadness, anxiety and other emotions.

By understanding how trauma has impacted their current lives, we can help develop new coping mechanisms and healthy habits that foster positive relationships and behaviors at home, at school, and in their larger communities.

Intake always begins with a physical and psychiatric assessment under the direction of a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist, which allows the hospital to develop an individualized treatment plan for each patient.

The program highlights include:

  • 24-hour nursing care in a highly-structured and supervised group living and learning environment
  • Specialized care for girls with co-existing medical issues or conditions, such as diabetes or pregnancy
  • Medication management overseen by a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist
  • Around-the-clock behavioral health treatment therapies
  • Daily group therapy and weekly individual therapy and family therapy sessions
  • Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Licensed teachers from the Greenwood Community School System to help teens stay on track with their academic studies
  • Special treatment for girls involved in human trafficking
  • Contract with Indiana Division of Child Services to provide 30-day diagnostic and evaluation services
  • Opportunity for off-site and advanced educational opportunities
  • Art and recreational therapy
  • Life skills training
  • Transitional and discharging planning
  • The Girls’ Residential Treatment Center (RTC) accepts most commercial insurance, TRICARE® and is contracted with Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS) and Indiana Juvenile Probation

Eating Disorder Treatment

Obsession with food, body weight and shape are all things that young women face. Due to this, eating disorders are actually serious and often fatal illnesses that can destroy the lives of teenage girls. Treating eating disorders early is important because people with eating disorders are at a higher risk for sucide and medical complications.

Treatment Model for Substance Use

For individuals who need addiction treatment services, our residential treatment center for teenage girls uses the Matrix Model — a CBT-based program designed explicitly for teens dealing with substance abuse issues.

The program facilitates rehabilitation through lifestyle changes, relapse prevention training, dependence education and 12-step facilitation. Treating substance abuse requires treating the whole person, and our treatment team of mental health professionals is ready to help your loved one with mental health and substance use disorders.
