Girls Residential Treatment in Arizona

Understanding the unique and often intricate behavioral health needs of young women, Zenith Academy in Arizona provides specialized residential treatment.

Our programs are designed to support teenage girls in navigating and overcoming the complexities of mental health challenges. As a dedicated residential treatment center (RTC), we offer a safe, nurturing environment where expert professionals deliver targeted behavioral health inpatient treatment. This tailored approach ensures that each young woman receives the personalized care and support essential for her mental and emotional well-being. At Zenith Academy, we are committed to empowering teenage girls with the tools and resources they need for healing and growth.

Unique Mental Health Disorders and Behavioral Challenges that Teen Girls Face

Young women are more likely to develop depression and anxiety than young men. Although mood disorders tend to be as prevalent in boys as in girls before puberty, the numbers become lopsided during the teenage years. More adolescent females battle with these conditions through adolescence and into adulthood than males do, leading to long-lasting behavioral issues that can negatively impact their entire lives. 

To cope with these mood disorders or other mental health conditions, including eating disorders, girls can display signs of behavioral health issues like:

  • Substance use disorders
  • Isolation
  • Anhedonia (reduced ability to feel pleasure)
  • Moodiness
  • Self-harming behavior
  • Aggressive behavior


We can also help teens who have been victims of sex trafficking. 

Residential Treatment Program for Teen Girls

At Zenith Academy, our residential program specializes in behavioral health inpatient treatment uniquely designed for teen females. This program delivers a high level of care, focusing on helping your teen relearn and manage her emotions effectively.

Nestled within our state-of-the-art Behavioral Health Inpatient Facility (BHIF), our residential treatment for teen girls is tailored to address the specific needs of young women in a supportive and structured environment. Our dedicated team works tirelessly to treat and empower each adolescent with the skills and confidence needed for emotional resilience and mental well-being.

How BHIF Works and What It Can Offer

Our Behavioral Health Inpatient Facility (BHIF) for adolescent females provides a comprehensive inpatient/residential treatment experience within a 31-bed facility. This specialized program is designed to assist your teen in discovering and addressing the underlying causes of her mental health and behavioral challenges, offering a supportive path toward healing and growth.

We can help young women who:

  • Abuse drug and alcohol
  • Display aggression and opposition
  • Have truant behavior
  • Have tried running away
  • Have mental conditions
  • Display self-harming tendencies or suicidal ideation


BHIF allows your teen to step away from her usual environment and its stressors so that she can focus on getting the help she needs at our residential treatment center. 

By providing a secure facility where she feels protected, we can provide her with a safe place to explore the causes of behavioral issues and find the solutions that will help her lead a happier and more productive life.

Individual Therapy Sessions: Treating the Underlying Problem

The best way to understand what is leading your teen to experience the troubles she is dealing with is for her to participate in individual therapy. Individual therapy at our center can involve a few different treatment options, but the main tool we rely on is cognitive-behavioral therapy. 

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the most respected and widely used talk therapy options for the treatment of mental and behavioral health issues. CBT helps your teen learn to recognize the unhelpful and negative thinking patterns that can cause her to act or feel the way she does. 

Once she can identify the negative patterns, CBT helps her learn how to make changes in her behavior that lead to more positive results. 

These strategies can also help your child learn how to make behavioral changes so she can deal with situations better in the future and communicate more effectively with others.

Implementing Modern Counseling Programs

Depending on your teen’s needs, we may take a specific approach to her treatment. One popular approach is aggression replacement training (ART), a cognitive behavioral intervention program that’s meant to help adolescents improve social skills and moral reasoning, better manage their anger, and reduce aggressive behavior. It’s a program that’s seen significant success and has been implemented in schools and treatment centers worldwide.

Another approach is the Seven Challenges counseling program. Primarily focused on helping adolescents with alcohol and drug abuse problems, this program is designed to help patients evaluate their lives, consider better alternatives, and implement positive changes. The program’s main goal is to empower your teen to take power over their own lives by recognizing problematic behavior and making thoughtful decisions.

Working Through Isolation with Group Therapy 

Residential program with support for families of clients in residential treatment with experiential activities to build life skills and focus on education and encourage hope.

Our inpatient treatment for teen females offers group therapy sessions to help your child understand she is not alone in what she faces. 

Isolation is a pervasive consequence of behavioral and mental health concerns and can lead to the worsening of symptoms. By getting the chance to hear from others who are also struggling and engage in conversation with peers, your teen can feel more connected to a community.

She can also start making healthier friendships and building a support system she will be able to depend on even after leaving treatment. 

Healing Family Rifts with Family Counseling

Family focused residential program for girls to develop life skills. The clinical benefits of programs that treat teens and their parents

Family therapy can allow you and your teen to start bridging the divide that mental health and behavioral concerns may have caused. During family counseling sessions, you and your child can relearn how to communicate and address the issues that may be impacting the rest of the family.  

Family therapy sessions can also help you understand certain behavioral problems and what you can do to help. 

Helping Your Teen Understand Herself Better

Residential treatment for eating disorders and self esteem issues for teens to achieve a healthier life.

At Zenith Academy, our residential treatment is not just about managing symptoms; it’s about helping your teen understand herself better. We recognize that adolescence is a pivotal time for self-discovery and personal growth. Our program is designed to provide a supportive environment where your teen can explore her identity, understand her emotions, and develop coping strategies that resonate with her unique experiences.

Through group and individual counseling sessions, we help each young woman realize she is not alone in her struggles, fostering a sense of community and shared understanding. Our approach aims to empower your teen with self-awareness and resilience, laying a strong foundation for mental and emotional well-being.

Learning Coping Skills for Anxiety

Entering Residential Treatment for Girls: What Are the Necessary Steps?

Residential treatment program for teens to seek a proper diagnosis and also receive the benefits of a proper education with an in-facility school.

If your teenage daughter is struggling with mental health and behavioral health issues, we can schedule an assessment to ensure our BHIF program is the right one for your family. 

During the assessment, we will speak with you about your child’s goals, whether she has received any kind of treatment before, and what her medical history is like. It is also the perfect opportunity for you to ask us any questions or voice concerns about the program. 

If we think your teen is a good fit, we can discuss the next steps, including payment options. At Zenith Academy, we accept private pay, commercial insurance, and Medicaid/AHCCCS policies. If you have any questions regarding your insurance coverage, we are here to help you navigate this process.

We’ll also request documents such as her birth certificate, school enrollment, and immunization records, along with electronic signatures on forms.

Once the administrative work is settled, we can begin preparing for your teen’s arrival at our residential treatment center. We will schedule the date and time and offer assistance on what your child should bring and what she should know before coming to our facility. 

On the day of your teen’s arrival, we will ensure everything is in order and help her get settled.
