For Adolescents

General Adolescent Care

For teens ages 13 to 17, Riverside offers programs that help to treat psychological, emotional and behavioral difficulties. Beginning with an in-depth evaluation, Riverside’s behavior health specialists determine the specific course of treatment that would most effectively address the needs of the adolescent. Teens who struggle with suicide, eating disorders, depression, aggression and adverse behaviors can benefit from this program.

For Adults

Riverside has designed programs for crisis intervention and the short-term hospitalization for adult patients suffering with mental illness. Treatments include individual therapy, group therapy, recreational therapy and psychological testing. Social service professionals and case managers also assist patients and family members with continuing care options.

For Seniors

Focusing on the special needs of the elderly patient, Riverside has created treatments that concentrate on enhancing the mental stability and independent functioning of each patient. Staff professionals work with medical physicians to identify a relationship that may exist between the elderly patient's mental state of mind and any physical illness or disease.
