Acute Adolescent Unit

Lighthouse Behavioral Health Hospital has recently added a new line of service offering acute psychiatric treatment for adolescents ages 12–17. This unit provides a safe, nurturing environment for adolescents to heal. Lighthouse Behavioral Health proudly features Dr. Rupa Shetty, Board Certified in Adolescent Psychiatry, as the attending physician on this unit. Patients receiving treatment here will experience individual and group therapy to assist in the restructuring of thoughts and behaviors. Additionally, a comprehensive medication review is provided by Dr. Shetty removing unnecessary medication. Adolescents are encouraged to participate in recreational therapeutic activities.

If you or a loved one know someone who may be in need of these services, please contact our admissions office at 843-347-8871.
