Admissions to Residential Treatment

KVC Missouri provides residential treatment for children and teens who are in need of intensive and expert care to achieve mental health wellness. Our programs are trauma-informed, strength-based, child- and family-focused, and stress the importance of building healthy attachments and relationships.

Treatment is based on each child’s unique needs and uses a combination of therapeutic services, including individual, group and family therapy, psychiatric services, medical services and 24-hour supervision in a therapeutic milieu setting. Learn more about residential treatment.

For immediate intervention in an active emergency, go to your local emergency room or community mental health center right away, or call 911. You can also call or text the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline at 988.

What to Expect During Admissions

When a client or family arrives for admission, a nurse or other healthcare professional will meet them in our lobby and escort them to one of our visiting rooms. In this room, a KVC Missouri team member will:

  • Ask parents/guardians to complete the admission paperwork, providing consent and contact information
  • Provide education about the treatment program and our highly-trained staff
  • Assign the client a bedroom
  • Integrate the client into therapeutic activities as soon as possible

We know that sometimes it can be difficult for parents/guardians to be onsite with their child due to different life circumstances. When that is the case, as long as the parents/guardians send us the completed consent paperwork we can complete the admission process over the phone.
