Short-Term Residential in Tennessee FAQ
During short-term care, adolescent and teen boys will live at our beautiful residential treatment center in Tennessee and participate in a schedule of activities centered around treating mental health conditions and healing. Some of the benefits of short-term care at Embark are that it‘s more affordable than long-term care, the 90-day average length of stay means young people can more quickly transition back into life at home, and it’s frequently reimbursed by insurance.
The main differences between our short-term care and a typical inpatient treatment program are the treatment environment and length of stay. Our beautiful location in Benton provides adolescents and teens with residential treatment in a healing, nurturing setting and a schedule that mirrors home life but with therapy mixed in throughout the day. Inpatient treatment usually takes place in a hospital environment. Our facility also provides a longer treatment time, lasting around 90 days on average compared to an inpatient hospitalization stay that often lasts for several days.
The length of treatment differs for each adolescent and teen, but on average, short-term treatment at our Tennessee center lasts around 90 days.
Adolescents and teens from all over the United States can come to our Tennessee facility for the intensive 24-hour care it can provide for a wide range of mental health and substance abuse issues. For youths who have safety issues or a lack of support at home or who need a high level of care after an inpatient hospitalization or outpatient treatment, our short-term residential treatment center can be a good option.
Our residential treatment is necessary when your adolescent or teen’s mental health needs are too great for outpatient care or when they’re stepping down in treatment intensity, for example from an inpatient hospitalization program. Short-term care can also be a good option if someone feels unsafe at home or is trying to break out of a negative daily routine.
It can be hard for adolescents and teens to think about or accept going to a short-term residential treatment center to address their difficult mental health issues. Help motivate your child to embrace this type of treatment by asking open-ended questions about their situation and how this experience could improve it. Reassure them you’ll provide support by participating in family therapy during their stay and maintaining regular communication with them while they’re at the facility.
