Acute Inpatient Programs for Youths

North Star Behavioral Health System offers acute inpatient programs for children and teens at risk of harming themselves or others. These 30-day programs offer 24-hour nursing and evidence-based treatment methods designed to help young patients stabilize and move into less intensive care as quickly as possible.

Evidence-based practices are tailored to patient age and developmental ability. In addition to the structured groups, we utilize comfort carts and sensory items to assist patients who require extra support with de-escalation.
