What Goes On in Treatment?

  • H. Thomas MilhornJr.


Once your child agrees to treatment, or is court-ordered to receive treatment, you must identify a program suitable for your particular adolescent. Generally, two options are available: inpatient treatment or outpatient treatment. Other less often used programs include half-way houses and therapeutic communities, known as residential treatment. The treatment professional is best qualified to advise you on which type of treatment is best suited for your child.
