When a young person endures a trauma, either through direct exposure or by learning about a trauma, the resulting effects can impact every aspect of his or her life. At Rolling Hills Hospital, we understand the unique treatment needs of youth who have experienced, witnessed, or learned about a trauma, and are proud to offer programming that addresses and treats such needs in a well-rounded, holistic manner.
The Anchor Program, a residential treatment option located on Rolling Hills Hospital’s campus, is an invaluable program designed for male and female adolescents, between the ages of 12 and 17, who are struggling with the residual effects of trauma. This program supplies both a safe and stable environment for youth to understand their emotional turmoil and how it has likely contributed to other concerns in their lives.
The staff of caring and compassionate professionals who facilitate treatment in this program do so with an unparalleled dedication to helping young people overcome their emotional strife and behavioral disturbances. These same professionals are also devoted to promoting healing and change, and offer 24/7 support as possible triggers are identified and coping skills are developed.
While engaged in The Anchor Program, our young residents will partake in the following proven effective treatment methods, which are grounded in the trauma-informed approach to treatment:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family Therapy
- Psychoeducational opportunities
Additionally, our clinical staff members will work with residents and their families during family therapy sessions so as to prevent the possibility of re-traumatization and so that each resident has a strong network of support among those closest to him or her. Medication management services are also accessible to residents in this program, and our esteemed psychiatrists are on hand to recommend, prescribe, and monitor medications if they are deemed necessary to a youth’s care.
The overarching goal of The Anchor Program is to provide a safe place for youth to overcome their traumatic pasts so that the effects of having endured trauma do not carry over into adulthood. Therefore, in choosing this program for your child to embark on the healing process, he or she will garner the skills and confidence needed to resume life with a healthy and optimistic mindset that can serve well for a lifetime.
