Our Adolescent Program:

Our inpatient care for adolescents at Northlake Behavioral Health System provides care for all genders and ages 12-17 who are struggling to succeed in school, at home or in their communities due to a mental health challenge. Our program focuses on helping kids and teens find hope for their futures by giving our youth the opportunity to receive acute level care without the stress of external distractions of their everyday lives. We provide a supportive healing environment and give undivided attention in group and individual therapy sessions. Before your child leaves Northlake, our compassionate and caring staff will provide the necessary skills, tools and resources for your child to continue their progress long after they leave our center. Our expert team will personalize a care plan based on a comprehensive assessment of past medical history as well as current challenges, strengths, and goals.

We are currently seeking Volunteers with teaching experience to join our team in aiding students with their reading skills. Volunteers are requested for at least one hour per week.

We adhere to all CDC recommendations for COVID safety.
