It appears that you are in the Northeast.   My daughter when 16 spent 5 months at Brattleboro Retreat in Vt.   Great place diagnosed the BPD and started DBT.    She was discharged to walk with her class for HS graduation.   Slow spiral downward severe suicide attempts hospitalization every other week.   She has been at Supervised Lifestyles in Brewster NY for the last year.   Insurance covered (thank God)  Several levels of care and they will send her back and forht beteween levels of care and supervision depending on her behavior.  She is now in case management will turn 20 on the 17th and has her own apartment and job.   Worth looking into.   She still has her ups and downs but it is not in my house and as long as she attends her groups and meets with her therapist she seems to be ok.   Has a case manager that will stop by with 5 minute notice and if she dosen't answer the door they call the police for a well check.  Good Luck.   

Thank you and good luck to you, as well.

We are looking for a safe facility for our 15 yr. old daughter. She's been to several short term places(usually for no more than a week) and one long term(for two months). Trying to find a place that specializes in BPD or bi-polar disorders. Getting tired of doctors that just prescribe meds. Would consider an out of state facility but also want to be able to visit on a regular basis. Very surprised that some of the so-called Christian based facilities cost so much and insurance doesn't cover them because their "Christian teachings". Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have been looking for my daughter a place also in Georgia. She is 22.

The last time she was in Anchor around Atl. and it was just a short term stay that didn't help much.

Wishing you luck and if I come up with anything in my searching I will let you know.

I know one of the therapists at Inner Harbor in Douglasville, GA.  It might be appropriate.

We are in the metro Atlanta area, and have used two facilities.  Our daughter is 17, and began cutting about a year ago, which finally crossed the line to where we were able to start the process for "real" intervention.

The first was Peachford Hospital, which is for crisis care.  The do both inpatient and outpatient... and we were involved with them off and on for about 7 months.  Think of them as the "ER" of the mental health world.  After our daughter continued to cycle in and out of their facility, they began talk to us about "residential treatment".  They gave us a list of facilities, helped set up the interview to pursue funding from the State of Georgia since RTC's (residential treatment centers) were not covered by our insurance at all... and we then had to take it from there.

We stumbled upon a facility called "Hillside Hospital", which is in "Midtown" (Atlanta), across from Piedmont Park.  They deal with ONLY children and teens.  Their speciality is DBT... which was a major reason we chose them.  Our daughter was admitted to their facility on July 20th, and she is still there now.  We have LOVED LOVED LOVED what they are doing with our daughter (and family).  We did qualify for full funding thru the State, which shocked me because I thought our income level would disqualify us.

I would be happy to tell you more, if you want to email me specific questions.

I need resources for long term inpatient treatment facilities. I am having trouble because most places do not accept any insurance and the ones that do, my insurance will only pay for inpatient and not residential treatment. Any suggestions?
