Community Services & Admissions
The BHC accepts referrals any time, 24 hours a day, for people who are experiencing a psychiatric crisis or who for other reasons may require hospitalization. Our Assessment and Referral worker on duty will assist any physician, mental-health provider, professional, family, or individual who needs help.
Admissions to BHC are based on medical necessity and may require a specific mental-health assessment and/or medical screening. Our Assessment and Referral worker will assist in making the appropriate arrangements, including referrals directly from physicians.
About our Program
A torrent of emotions can accompany the onset of adolescence. But there's a threshold between normal teen angst and symptoms of deeper problems.
If a specific incident or pattern of behavior has raised concern for the safety of your teen daughter or that of your family, or has made it difficult to maintain a status of equilibrium in your family, it may be time to ask for help.
EIRMC's Teton Peaks Residential Center is a facility specifically designed to provide high-quality mental and behavioral treatment to adolescent girls ages12- to 18-year-olds who are mentally, emotionally, or behaviorally impaired to the degree that they require long-term treatment in a secure environment. The program is also designed for girls who require continuing care after acute psychiatric hospitalization or who need a 24-hour therapeutic program less restrictive than inpatient hospitalization.
We believe that everyone, through a systematic treatment approach, has the capacity to learn how to function effectively. Teton Peaks focuses on identifying challenges and providing individualized treatment interventions that prepare teenagers to function in the community. We can help heal the pain your child is experiencing. Our staff is trained in Trauma Informed Care.
Teton Peaks treats adolescent girls who experience:
- post-traumatic stress disorder
- Substance abuse issues
- Family crises
- Difficulties in their school environment
- Anxiety disorders
- Attention disorders
- Sleep disorders
- Emotional and behavioral issues
- Peer pressure
- mood disorders
- self harm/suicidal thoughts
Adolescents troubled with severe sexual disorders, moderate mental retardation, fire starting or primary diagnosis of Reactive Attachment Disorder may not qualify for treatment at Teton Peaks Residential Center.
