The Trail Program

Inpatient acute care to children and teens

The Trail Program at North Star Behavioral Health provides inpatient acute care to children and teens, ages 4 – 18. Our program helps encourage healthy and safe thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, as a child or teen travels the path to wellness.

The trail programOur qualified staff members are experienced in the important job of caring for young people, and we recognize cultural and Alaskan diversity when working with children and teens. Our dedication is demonstrated every day as we help young people and families deal with difficult problems. Our commitment to service excellence shows in the professional guidance, counseling and support for children, and caring responsiveness that we offer to parents and families.

Our multi-disciplinary team is comprised of psychiatrists, medical doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, clinicians, mental health specialists, dieticians, activity therapists, and certified recreational therapists who have professional certifications and outstanding skills in working with children and families.

We believe our work is the most important work that we can do. The team approach and family atmosphere at North Star reinforce our staff’s commitment to our work — which makes a difference for the future of our communities.
