Treatment Services for Adolescents

Newport News Behavioral Health Center offers a number of treatment options for adolescents. Among these are inpatient treatment, residential treatment and substance abuse treatment, as well as our Project Valor program for sexually abusive males.

Inpatient Treatment

Newport News Behavioral Health Center provides crisis intervention support to adolescents experiencing distress due to a broad range of psychiatric symptoms requiring immediate acute inpatient hospitalization. Treatment includes individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, medication management and psychoeducation. Ongoing care coordination assists patient and family in crisis and connects them to appropriate aftercare services.

Residential Treatment

Newport News Behavioral Health Center offers residential treatment to patients ages 11–21. Our residential program aims to provide a vehicle for residents and staff to evaluate behavioral progress; address resident accomplishments; address behavioral problems; set weekly goals and objectives; determine eligibility for participation in social activities, outings, special events and passes; and address disciplinary actions.

Comprehensive Assessment Program (CAP)

Our Comprehensive Assessment Program (CAP) provides evaluation and treatment of youth with complex emotional, behavioral and psychiatric symptoms. Adolescents receive specialized therapeutic interventions and programming for a 30, 60 or 90-day evaluation period, while gaining a critical understanding of presenting symptoms and determining the ideal treatment options. A comprehensive final assessment report is constructed and presented in order to provide community partners with recommendations for appropriate continuing care.

Project Valor: Sexually Abusive Males Program

The Project Valor Program is designed for the treatment of sexually abusive behaviors within a strength-based environment. Eight therapeutic assignments treat the whole individual within a positive peer culture where the adolescent develops self-worth, significance, dignity and responsibility. The adolescent is offered individual and group therapy modalities, adapted to developing an understanding of healthy sexuality, mood and behavioral management. Adolescents will present insights, program assignments and a relapse prevention plan to a panel of therapists, family and others as appropriate. Program oversight is provided by Certified Sex Offender Treatment Providers (CSOTP).

Substance Abuse Treatment

Newport News Behavioral Health Center provides residential treatment for adolescents ages 11 to 18 who are struggling with substance use and behavioral health issues. We treat individuals using evidence-based approaches and ideal practices to help them face obstacles and start the healing process.
