Transitional Services for Adolescents

The youth of today are struggling with problems that are unique to their generation. If not addressed, these problems can have lasting effects upon families and other relationships. While some of these problems may be treated through outpatient services, others may require inpatient treatment. Set within a safe and structured environment, The BridgeWay offers transitional services (three to six months) to adolescents, ages 12 through 17 years, who may be faced with one or more of the following issues:

  • Depression/Mood Disorders
  • Physical/Sexual abuse
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Drug/alcohol abuse
  • Eating Disorders
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Suicidal behaviors
  • Homicidal behaviors
  • Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Conduct Disorder
  • Oppositional/Defiant Disorder
  • Inappropriate/disruptive behaviors
  • Emotional difficulties
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Depending upon the needs of the adolescent, services may include the following:

  • Individual, group and family therapy
  • Medication evaluation and case management
  • Special education certified by the Pulaski County Special School District
  • Process and topic groups
  • Recreational therapy
  • For adolescents, ages 12 through 17, who are struggling with chronic issues, The BridgeWay offers the Transitional Program. The goal of the program is to stabilize the adolescent’s behavior and explore and process underlying issues so that they may return to their family or caregivers within a period of three to six months.
