Identifying those behaviors and symptoms early on and implementing a course of care and specialized treatment can prevent further and more severe problems from developing as teen girls grow into adults.
Short-term treatment typically lasts between one and three months. Pre-teens and teens best suited for short-term treatment often come to The Poconos from another treatment program or an unsuccessful living environment seeking a 24-hour continuum of care.
