BNI Treatment Centers treats psychiatric and drug-related crises with acute stabilization. It involves integrated medical and psychiatric interventions and is a short-term process.
For drug-related crises, BNI Treatment Centers builds on first responders' initial treatment. Follow-up acute stabilization treatment at BNI Treatment Centers lasts a few days.
For psychiatric emergencies, including hallucinations, paranoia, perceptual disturbances, etc., BNI Treatment Centers professionals work to calm agitated patients with mild to moderate sedation. If a patient becomes harmful to others, BNI Treatment Centers staff will use physical restraints. An assessment for suicidal ideation, homicidal thoughts, presence of delusions or hallucinations follows acute stabilization. Pharmaceutical intervention and clinical psychotherapy are part of the treatment.
A medically supervised detox helps ensure that your teen goes through withdrawal safely and is set-up for success with recovery. BNI Treatment Centers offers a supervised and safe medical detox. This process takes 14 days. Withdrawal symptoms start within the first 12 hours after the last dose. Symptoms will peak on the second and third days.
For the best success, the detox needs to be followed by additional treatment, either residential or outpatient.
With the residential treatment, your teen will live at the center and receive more intensive support and treatment based on their needs, including the following types of therapy:
Teens also enjoy other therapeutic activities:

These dual diagnosis treatments are also individualized based on your teen's needs. However, treatments usually include detox and withdrawal followed by active treatment. Outpatient active treatment is an option for teens with a mild substance use disorder and a mental health disorder that responds to medication.
Active treatment generally includes individual psychotherapy, group therapy, medication management, addiction education, and relapse prevention. Additional therapies including medication, mindfulness training, and art therapy are also part of active treatment.
