Levels of Care
Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego facility in San Diego, California, and White River Academy facility in Delta, Utah, are dedicated to improving the lives of young people between the ages of 12 and 17 years. Sovereign Health’s adolescent treatment programs provide individualized and evidence-based treatment modalities to adolescents with mental illnesses, substance use disorders and co-occurring conditions.
Sovereign Health understands that patients will require different levels of care depending on their specific needs and presenting condition. Each treatment plan is individually tailored to meet the needs of each student and focuses on improving overall health and wellness. As such, our Adolescent Program offered at White River Academy and Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego, provide male and female adolescents with the following levels of care:
- Residential Treatment (RT) provides adolescents with general and specialized nonhospital interdisciplinary services, seven days a week, 24 hours per day, provided by staff trained in treating persons with behavioral health disorders and related issues. Patients reside within the facility and are attended to by our professional staff. We maintain comfortable and secure single-sex residence facilities for students and patients.
- Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a time-limited, medically supervised program that provides comprehensive, therapeutically intensive, coordinated and structured clinical services. PHP programs serve as an alternative to inpatient care, as transitional care following an inpatient stay in lieu of continued hospitalization and as a step-down service. Patients at Ranch San Diego attend treatment five days a week and return to their residence when not in treatment. Students at WRA continue to reside at the school.
- Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) is a person-centered treatment plan that consists of scheduled treatment sessions and aims to minimize the need for more intensive treatment. At Rancho San Diego, patients receive treatment during the day and return to their residence for the rest of the day. This allows patients to work on their recovery while also having more freedom to pursue other constructive activities or obligations. Patients at WRA in this level of care continue to reside at the school.
- General Outpatient Program (GOP) offers patients the most freedom as a step down from IOP.
As patients and students progress through their treatment, they can move through various levels of care as their needs change. Patients generally step down and receive more freedom as they development and gain the skills they need to move forward toward a full recovery.
