Anxiety, depression, substance abuse, family problems
Sadly, children and adolescents often face the same mental health crises as adults. Anxiety can become panic attacks so severe, a teen believes he is dying. A child with depression may not budge from bed for days. Substance abuse – drinking and drugs – can affect children as young as eight or nine. And the problems many families face are so overwhelming that parents can’t cope, leaving children to struggle through on their own.
For most children and teens, outpatient mental health services provide the needed lifeline. But when problems spiral out of control – when the situation becomes life-threatening – intensive treatment in an acute or residential setting is the best hope for a positive outcome.
INTEGRIS Mental Health/Spencer
We offer intensive programs designed to treat children (ages 5-12) and adolescents (ages 12-17), offering both an acute and residential level of care. Our treatment team includes psychiatrists, nurses, therapists and other mental health professionals specifically trained in treating children and adolescents.
Payment, Hours, and Length of Stay
Assessments are offered free of charge. INTEGRIS Mental Health-Spencer operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A treatment team individually assesses each child’s needs to determine the appropriate level of care and length of stay. If it is determined that the child or adolescent is an appropriate fit for one of our programs, INTEGRIS Mental Health is contracted with almost all private insurers and the Oklahoma Medicaid program, SoonerCare.
