Inpatient Behavioral Health Treatment Program for Children in Fayetteville, AR

At Vantage Point, we provide acute and sub-acute programming and individualized therapeutic services for youths ages 5-11 via our STAR program. We offer both a six-month intensive program within our residential services, and a 10-day program for children participating in acute crisis stabilization.

Each program is designed to provide comprehensive treatment to patients who have been unable to successfully manage psychiatric and/or behavioral symptoms in outpatient settings.

The STAR Program

All children who heal at Vantage Point will have access to the interventions and services they need to stabilize and thrive. Our experienced staff members understand the unique developmental needs of children in the treatment setting, and are here to offer expert support to our patients and their families.

Our patients benefit from a treatment setting that balances freedom, structure, and accountability. As we work to address behavioral, emotional, and psychiatric concerns, patients move through four different levels within the STAR program, each with certain responsibilities and privileges. As patients build autonomy and learn new healthy behaviors, we celebrate successes, big and small.

What Disorders Do We Treat?

Vantage Point’s STAR program is equipped to provide support for a wide range of mental health conditions, including:

  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Stress-related disorders
  • Mood disorders like depression, anxiety, etc.
  • Psychotic disorders

All treatment plans at Vantage Point are shaped by the patient’s and family’s individual needs. However, some of the common symptoms we address include: parent-child relationship issues, suicidal ideation, aggression, and self-harming behaviors.

Our Treatment Modalities

Vantage Point’s staff of licensed therapists provides a variety of therapeutic interventions, including:

  • Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Play therapy
  • Individual therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Group therapy

Group therapy offers youth a chance to build healthy social relationships in a safe, structured setting. Here, patients give and receive peer support, practice new coping skills, and learn about topics related to managing their symptoms and behaviors.

Group themes may include psychiatric processing, medication education, recreational therapy, and community. Vantage Point therapists will always tailor the group to the needs of participants, and will cover topics such as social-skills building, anger and aggression, depression and anxiety, self-harming behaviors, and discharge planning.

In addition to our therapeutic supports, our medical staff of physicians, psychiatric nurse practitioners, and registered nurses provides medication management services and medical care for all patients. Patients can expect to meet with their attending psychiatrist weekly, with additional meetings as needed.

I wanted to give this recommendation for Vantage Point. This hospital has been very good for me. They work very hard to make sure their patients are well taken care of. I felt lucky to be here for in-house stay and now for IOP. If you need help emotionally this is the place to be.
