Diagnosis

Stabilization

ViewPoint Center offers safe facilities where our patients can stabilize and rebalance. While not every patient needs this step, for those who do, our Medical Team determines how well medications are working and the potential side effects of each medication separately. Once our patients are stabilized we can start the assessment and treatment process.

Assessment

Assessment is about clarifying diagnosis. We begin using a range of assessment tests. We continue with individual and group therapy as well as residential and academic activities designed to give a more comprehensive and clearer assessment.

Diagnosis
Nearly 75% of patients entering Viewpoint are misdiagnosed. Our diagnoses are focused on a full medication evaluation, diagnostic assessment, and then continual reassessment. Our comprehensive approach and team environment offers a clearer picture of how to help your child going forward.

Treatment
We work exclusively with teens aged 12 – 18  in a unique, individualized setting. Typically patients stay 5-6 weeks. The length of stay allows us to create a substantive diagnostic plan that best fits the patients needs for future success.
