Adolescent Psychiatry Q & A

What adolescent psychiatric services are available?

The experienced medical team at Pacific Neuropsychiatric Specialists offers a variety of comprehensive services for adolescents and young adults. Custom treatment plans are available for a range of psychiatric disorders, including:

  • Anxiety

  • Psychosis

  • Depression

  • Learning disorders

  • Behavioral problems

  • Attention difficulties



The Pacific Neuropsychiatric Specialists team also addresses substance abuse problems through their referral programs with local hospitals, including the 417 Recovery program in Orange County, California, and the 417 Palm Desert program in Palm Desert, California.

What can I expect during my child’s initial evaluation?

During your child’s first appointment with the team, the skilled providers discuss your child’s personal health and family history. They also review your child’s lifestyle, behaviors, and symptoms.

Depending on your child’s condition and the severity of their symptoms, the team creates a treatment plan that may include:

  • Medications

  • Outpatient therapy

  • Inpatient treatment

  • Partial hospitalization

  • Residential treatment



Your child’s provider discusses options for treatment with you, recommending which services are best suited for your child’s condition, age, and symptoms. They work closely with you and your child to provide the resources you need to ensure a high quality of life for your child and the rest of your family.

Will my child need hospitalization?

There are many conditions that can be well-managed through outpatient treatment services, like medications and talk therapy. However, in some cases, partial hospitalization is necessary for intensive treatment, especially after a serious psychiatric event.

The medical team at Pacific Neuropsychiatric Specialists works with College Hospital in Cerritos, California, to provide comprehensive care at a hospital location convenient to you. Your child’s provider can determine if hospitalization is necessary during the initial evaluation.

While a stay in the hospital might be important for getting a condition under control, your child may be able to continue treatment through outpatient services. In some cases, a referral for residential treatment may also be an option based on your child’s and your family’s needs.
