Optional Stabilization Process

No parent wants to see their child experience a mental health crisis. We offer medically assisted and supervised stabilization for teens who are in the middle of a psychiatric crisis. Not every client needs this step. The stabilization period lasts 7-21 days depending on your child’s progress. This period ends when symptoms reduce. During stabilization:

  • Clients receive 30 hours a week of therapeutic programming with licensed therapists. This includes individual therapy, family therapy, and group therapy.
  • Medication is managed and assessed by our medical staff.
  • Psychiatric assessments are carried out which include a client’s history and current symptoms.


Stabilization is carried out by our interdisciplinary staff members which include mental health specialists, nurses, board certified clinicians, and psychiatrists.

Assessments at ViewPoint Center

After the optional stabilization period has ended, we begin our assessment process. Throughout your child’s time at ViewPoint Center, the assessment process will be continuous. The goal of the assessment process is to clarify a diagnosis for clients and to form an optimal treatment plan.


The clinical assessments at ViewPoint Center include a full neuropsychological battery. We want to make sure that each individual client is provided with the assessments that are most applicable to their specific symptoms.


Our assessment process incorporates psychotherapy, classroom evaluations, daily recreation, and neuropsychological testing with the therapeutic milieu of being on campus. By seeing the ways in which clients interact with their peers on campus, as well as individual tests and academic performance, we are able to get a well-rounded perspective of each individual’s needs.


When the assessment process is coming towards an end, we conduct a verbal Multi-Disciplinary Review which discusses the initial assessment findings with you and your child. Afterwards, we send a final review which provides a clear diagnosis as well as recommendations for future treatment based on our observations.
