Vantage Point of Northwest Arkansas offers children and teens between the ages of 5 and 17 short-term inpatient care in a secure, safe, and serene environment. Children and teens may come to us struggling from mental illnesses such as depression, suicidal thoughts, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and other illnesses severe enough to cause intense impairment in daily life. It may be impossible for these children to function at their normal level due to the symptoms of their disorder, which is why we’re proud to offer inpatient crisis stabilization aimed at helping each child learn to manage the symptoms of his or her disorder(s) and return to his or her community a happy, productive child or teen.
In addition to mental health treatment, we also offer a supportive environment for children and teens struggling with chemical dependency to drugs like pot, meth, and prescription pills, as well as those who are struggling with alcohol use. Vantage Point believes that the key to helping troubled children and teens is through the use of an individualized approach monitored by the child’s psychiatrist and may include medication management (as needed) and individual, group, and family therapy. We believe that family and loved ones are absolutely vital to the success of the children and teens who come to us for help as loved ones will be able to support their child or teen after he or she has left our doors. We aim to be a beacon of hope for all who come to us for treatment of mental health issues and chemical dependency, as well as for our community at large.
