At Riverview Behavioral Health in Texarkana, Arkansas we are committed to providing care for individuals throughout their lifetime. We support our families and patients through education, crisis management, long-term care, and aftercare placements. When you come to us for help regarding your child, we will first conduct a free assessment to help identify the current needs regarding presenting problems. As we understand crises do not always occur during normal business hours, we have a needs assessment and referral center is available 24/7 to help you when you need us most. Based upon these clinical assessments, we’ll be able to help determine the appropriate level of care for your child.
Making the careful decision to hospitalize your child is one that must be done after all less-restrictive alternatives have been exhausted. If your child is in need of our inpatient or residential Children’s Program, we will help you through this challenging time. Our Children’s Program is offered for children between the ages of 5 and 12 and designed to provide a loving, caring, and warm environment for your child to grow, learn, and heal. The Children’s Program at our psychiatric treatment center has been created to allow for compassionate treatment of children who are struggling with all types of behavioral and psychiatric health issues.
School is a very important part of a child’s life and we offer an accredited school program that works hard with your child’s regular school and teachers to ensure their progress is being met. Our teachers are specially-trained to help children with psychiatric and behavioral issues reach their full potential. We know that school allows children to build self-esteem and learn how to get along with their peers.
Family involvement is vital for all families who have children in our Children’s Program as the only way to successfully manage behavioral and psychiatric problems is through team work. This will help your child know that you care very much about what is happening with them, teach you ways of coping, and practice newly-learned techniques of managing your child’s problems. At our psychiatric treatment center, family members are asked to participate in the assessment process, decisions about treatment, family therapy sessions, family educational sessions, discharge planning, as well as other activities.
