Psychiatric Treatment for Children

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

We are dedicated to helping and know even the most difficult cases can experience success. We believe that very often, children can begin healing when they develop skills like:

  • Learning to 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

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

Reactive Attachment Disorder Program

The reactive attachment disorder (RAD) program at Riverside Behavioral Health Center provides residential treatment to children with attachment disorders in a specialized program. 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.
