Behavioral Health Programs Available for Teens

Butler offers two behavioral health programs for teens: Inpatient Teen Treatment Unit and Teen Partial Hospital Program. These programs provide psychiatric treatment and support for teenagers, ages 13 to 17 who may be suffering from depression, anxiety, addiction, and other mood disorders.

Both the Inpatient and Partial programs are available 24/7 and self-referrals are accepted and a common way to enroll – no need to wait in an ER for an evaluation or referral.

The Inpatient Teen Treatment Unit is for teens in need of brief and intensive treatment for things like depression, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, addiction and more. The Teen Partial Hospital Program provides care for those who do not require inpatient hospitalization and treats anxiety, irritability, mood fluctuations, and other life-stage concerns.

Teen Treatment Programs


Our Teen Partial Hospital Program (PHP) is a day program serving teens, ages 13 to 17, who are struggling with depression, anxiety, or other mood-related symptoms, and who would benefit from the five-day-a-week, six-hour program day model.

The Teen PHP specializes in the mental health treatment of teens and has specific expertise in:

  • LGBTQ+ affirming treatment
  • Adjustment-related issues
  • Mood fluctuations
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood disorders
  • Life-stage concerns common in teens today

In this inpatient unit for teens, ages 13 to 17 years, the clinical team supports the teen’s entire family or guardians to address the symptoms of mental illness including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Addiction
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Self-harm

It is not uncommon for those who struggle with psychiatric disorders, such as depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder, to also have an active dependency on alcohol or other drugs. We are prepared to meet the needs of patients who may also require help for substance abuse issues.
