Adolescent Residential Program In-Network with TRICARE East

The Skyland Trail residential program for adolescents is now in-network with most plans offered by Humana Millitary / TRICARE East for military families. The adolescent treatment program helps teens ages 14 to 17 struggling with mood and anxiety disorders.

“Skyland Trail is pleased to offer residential mental health services for military families and their children living in Georgia and throughout the southeast,” says Beth Finnerty, Skyland Trail president and CEO. “Our partnership with Humana Military / TRICARE East will enable our military service members with teens in need of intensive psychiatric treatment to receive evidence-based residential mental health services close to home.”

The Skyland Trail Georgia-based adolescent residential treatment program was evaluated and was determined to meet the exacting TRICARE standards for quality care.

The residential treatment program for teens combines expert psychiatric care with nutrition and fitness programming, expressive and recreational therapies, academic support, and family therapy. Adolescent clients learn a range of new skills to manage psychiatric symptoms, effectively cope with stress, and improve communications with family, teachers, and peers.

Teen clients typically spend about eight to twelve weeks in the residential treatment program before stepping down to a less intensive level of care like the intensive outpatient program. Most client families use a combination of private insurance, self pay, and financial aid to cover the costs of treatment.
