Psychiatric Treatment for Children

Shadow Mountain Behavioral Health System provides mental health treatment for children within an inpatient or residential setting as well as our outpatient counseling and medication clinic. Our specialized reactive attachment disorder residential treatment program provides patient-focused treatment, utilizing an advanced treatment model developed for that population.

We are dedicated to help even the most difficult cases experience success. We believe that very often, children can begin healing when developing these skills:

  • Learning to keep themselves safe and stay calm.
  • Learning to better understand their own feelings and behaviors and those of others.
  • Learning ways to interact with both peers and adults with kindness and respect.

Acute Inpatient Treatment

Shadow Mountain Hospital and Assessment Center

For children who are in danger of harming themselves or others, the treatment priority is stabilization before introducing structured programming, including group and family therapy and evidence-based treatment modalities. 

Reactive Attachment Disorder Program

The RAD program at Riverside Behavioral Health Center provides residential treatment to children with attachment disorders in a specialized program that utilizes the Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy Model. Children cannot learn or grow unless they have the secure base of a mutual emotional bond with a caretaker. The RAD program aims at enlarging and enhancing the circle of relationships in the child’s life that allows for the fullest functioning of the child and his/her family.

Attachment Clinic

Children who have experienced mental trauma at a young age can struggle with attaching to a healthy, caring parent.  Whether a child is diagnosed with reactive attachment disorder or not, if he or she is struggling with attachment, Shadow Mountain Behavioral Health System wants to help.

Our Attachment Clinic, located at Riverside Behavioral Health Center’s Outpatient Services, serves children. Not sure if the child or family could benefit? Would you like to explore collaborating? We welcome your calls to discuss possible referrals and collaborations. Please call 918-293-2554 and request the Attachment Clinic.

Outpatient Counseling and Medication Clinic
