The clinical team at Carolina Dunes Behavioral Health offers behavioral treatment for adolescents age 12 to 17.

Helping an adolescent get the treatment they need for mental health issues can be challenging. Parents and caregivers may find the process of seeking help to be overwhelming, not only because of concern for the adolescent but because of their own emotions as well. 

Carolina Dunes Behavioral Health makes this process easier by offering psychiatric services specifically designed for patients between the ages of 12 and 17. Our inpatient treatment options are available for adolescents who are admitted both voluntarily or involuntarily and include: immediate assessment, diagnosis, and rapid stabilization of acute psychiatric symptoms.
