Independence, Missouri, Treatment Center FAQ
During residential care, adolescents and teens will live at our beautiful residential treatment center in Independence, Missouri, and participate in activities centered around treating mental health conditions and healing. Some of the benefits of residential 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 program and a typical inpatient treatment facility are the environment and length of stay. Our beautiful location in Missouri provides youths 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, inpatient treatment at our Missouri facility lasts around 90 days.
Youths from all over the United States come to our residential facility in Missouri for the intensive 24-hour care it provides for a wide range of mental health and substance use issues. For adolescents and teens 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 program can be a good option.
Our residential treatment is necessary when your youth’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. Residential 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 youths to think about or accept going to a residential treatment center to address their difficult mental health issues. Help motivate your adolescent or teen 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.
