Sub-Acute Inpatient Behavioral Health Treatment Program for Children in Fort Smith

Valley Behavioral Health Systems provides comprehensive care for children between the ages of 3 and 12 who are in need of intensive treatment for mental, emotional, and/or behavioral concerns. Offering both acute inpatient care as well as sub-acute inpatient treatment, Valley Behavioral is able to address a vast array of concerns, while helping children overcome the challenges they are facing.

Our children’s inpatient treatment program offers acute care for children who are in need of immediate stabilization or crisis intervention. In this setting, children are provided with a full continuum of care that is tailored to meet their specific needs. Through the implementation of a variety of therapeutic techniques, our inpatient program works with children as they develop the coping skills needed to achieve their highest level of functioning.

Our children’s residential treatment program offers long-term services to children who are in need of a safe and caring environment where they can work towards healing from the struggles they are facing. Children in our sub-acute inpatient program are monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so that not only is their safety ensured, but they are also afforded access to mental health professionals at all hours of the day and night should they find themselves in need of support for an immediate concern.

While in our sub-acute inpatient program, every child attends school daily as part of his or her treatment process. All of the academic credits that are acquired during their time with use will automatically transfer to their local school district.

The therapeutic aspects of our residential program include:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Family therapy

At Valley Behavioral Health Systems, we are dedicated to making each patient a priority as soon as he or she walks through our doors. Our multidisciplinary team of therapists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, therapeutic recreational specialists, nurse practitioners, and mental health technicians are devoted to providing excellent, life-changing treatment that promotes self-awareness and personal growth. All staff works under the direct supervision of board-certified psychiatrists and our Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist has been recognized by the Arkansas Times as “Best Doctor” two years in a row.

Whatever your child’s needs may be, you can rest assured that, at Valley Behavioral Health Systems, he or she will receive the most optimal level of care possible.
