The Menninger Clinic is a residential treatment center located in Houston, Texas

Beside a number of programs for adults, they have programs for Adolescents. The target group for these programs are teenagers aged between 12 and 17. On the homepage they are listed as:

  • Adolescent Assessment, lasting 3 to 8 weeks
  • Inpatient Treatment, lasting 3 to 8 weeks
  • Day Hospital Treatment, lasting 6 to 10 weeks

Program structure

During the first two days the teenager have to remain at the facility, while paper work is conducted.

Once this period, which can last up to three weeks is over the teenager entered the normal schedule

The adolecents department is locked because they claim that the adult department is so closely located that a local law dictates it.
