Residential Programs at Lightfully Teen

While weekly or biweekly therapy sessions can be beneficial for a teenager, sometimes a little extra help is needed. Having around-the-clock care and support in a comfortable, safe space can allow teens to focus solely on improving their mental health and mental disorder symptoms.

Residential programs can be a solution for teenagers who have symptoms of a mental health disorder and are putting themselves or others at risk. Lightfully Teen offers a Residential Treatment Program with personalized plans that are designed specifically for each person.

What Is a Residential Program?

A residential program takes place in a mental health facility that offers extended stays for teens with severe mental health disorder symptoms that put them in danger to themselves or others. It’s often used as a treatment option following a mental health crisis, especially crises that required hospitalization from suicide risk and self-harm.

Residential programs allow you to stay in a homey location for several weeks to receive 24/7 behavioral and mental health care. The goal is to help you move through your mental health journey by learning how to manage your symptoms with coping mechanisms and healthy emotional expression in a secure facility.
