Residential Psychiatric & Behavioral Health Treatment Program for Children in Fayetteville, AR

Vantage Point of Northwest Arkansas, located near Fayetteville, offers children and teens between the ages of 5 and 17 a residential inpatient behavioral health treatment program in a secure, safe, and serene environment.

Assessment Process For Your Children

From outpatient to residential to acute hospitalization, we put the needs of the children and teens we treat at our center first. Our center’s residential treatment program has been designed for boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 17 who struggle with disruptive, persistent, emotional, and/or behavioral challenges that make life at home unbearable for all involved. When your child or teen first comes to our center for care, he or she will be provided a thorough assessment including a psychiatric examination to determine psychiatric diagnosis and co-occurring disorders, as well as a medical examination that will determine if there are any medical challenges complicating his or her treatment. Your child’s treatment team will take the results of these examinations and work alongside the child and the child’s parent or legal guardian to create a plan of care for his or her stay in our center’s residential program. As always, if it is determined that your child’s needs would be better served through a more or less restrictive environment, we will make our suggestions for alternative programs and treatment centers.

Treatment Process

Treatment for the children and teens in our center’s residential program is directed and overseen by the client’s personal psychiatrist and implemented by our multidisciplinary treatment team, including: physicians, nurses, psychiatrists, therapists, psychologists, social workers, and supportive staff. As our average length of stay for the residential program is several months, Vantage Point understands that education – and the experience of our special education teachers – is a highly important component of the residential program stay. Each resident in our residential treatment program at our center is enrolled into the Springdale, Arkansas Public School System, and our teachers work with each child at his or her own pace to ensure continuity of education and ensures that the student receives proper credit for his or her work in school.

Therapies Used Within Treatment

Children in our center’s residential treatment program are involved in a variety of therapies that are designed to teach ways of coping with challenges, social skills, anger management, as well as and how their thoughts can influence negative behaviors. These children and teens will receive a variety of therapeutic approaches while in this program, including individual therapy, group therapies, and family therapies to allow for continued healing; therapy ensures that progress is being made and treatment goals are met. Family support or the support of loved ones and the legal guardian of the child is critical in each child’s continued success. We aim to incorporate family and guardians into every aspect of the child’s care at our center, from the creation of the treatment plan to the development of the aftercare plan that addresses the child or teen’s continued care. Through our residential program, Vantage Point has helped countless children and teen develop the skills to thrive in life outside of our center’s program.

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.
