Developmentally Appropriate Treatment

Learn about the care your child will receive at Little Creek Behavioral Health

Each child or adolescent who is a patient at Little Creek receives an individualized treatment plan based on a thorough assessment of the care that is right for them.

Our residential treatment program provides a variety of treatment modalities to help your child, including trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and medication management/maintenance.

We offer individual therapy and family therapy on an as-needed basis, and group therapy sessions take place multiple times each day, providing a mix of rehabilitation groups, process groups, and life skills groups to help children and adolescents interact with and relate to peers who are facing similar challenges.

To ensure that the children and adolescents who are healing with us continue to keep up academically, Little Creek provides state-licensed and -regulated education services for six hours each weekday. Special education teachers who are affiliated with the local school district work with our young patients to provide developmentally appropriate curriculum. Our classrooms help children and adolescents enhance their skills while reinforcing our traditional therapeutic milieu, and therapists and support staff are present during school hours to provide any additional care necessary.
