The Brook Hospital – KMI offers highly structured programs that utilize a multidisciplinary team approach for treating adolescents, ages 13–17, experiencing psychiatric or substance abuse problems. The inpatient programs are designed to provide the highest level of direct patient care that is possible, which includes physical, social, spiritual, medical and psychotherapeutic treatment interventions.
We provide educational services for our teenage patients through Jefferson County Public Schools in our on-site classrooms. Following completion of the inpatient program, an appropriate referral is then made for the patient to continue treatment in the least restrictive level of care possible (i.e., partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, outpatient and aftercare program). The level of care recommended is determined by the individual needs of the patient.
We utilize an evidence based model of recovery called Seven Challenges. The model challenges a patient to make wise decisions about alcohol and drugs. In addition to inpatient care for individuals suffering from addiction or dual diagnosis, we provide treatment and rehabilitation, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programming.
Before admission to any of the adolescent programs, patients receive a comprehensive assessment of their mental, physical and spiritual needs to determine the most appropriate level of care. The treatment team, led by the attending psychiatrist, develops an individual treatment plan for each patient and meets regularly to review each patient’s progress and to update treatment goals. Family members are also invited to participate in treatment team and family sessions. The Brook Hospitals recognize that recovery and healing is a lifelong process and therefore discharge planning begins upon admission. The treatment team works closely with each patient to set realistic goals for continuing care following treatment and makes available information or referral for further services as necessary.
We cannot offer diagnosis, counseling or recommendations online, but an Assessment and Referral specialist is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 502-426-6380. If you are currently experiencing an emergency, please dial 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
