Hello, I believe I may be able to help you with your concern. I am sorry that your friend’s daughter is having these issues. Most private residential facilities will only focus on substance abuse
and rarely are efficient in treating other mental illnesses. The best place for her to receive treatment would most likely be from a University Hospital setting as these setting can provide hospitalization, residential treatment in some circumstances, and a robust outpatient or partial hospitalization program for patients. So far the partial hospitalization program has had the most success in treating patients like this due to their focus on treatment during the day, but allowing the patient to return to their home setting at night. In addition, University Hospitals typically employ the best mental health professionals in the county as well with resources that are not seen in traditional general hospitals or residential treatment centers. The top University Hospital that focuses on psychiatric issues in California is the UCLA Resnick Neuoropsychiatric Hospital (also one of the top 10 psychiatric hospitals in the country).
The Stanford Psychiatric Clinic also provides Inpatient and Residential care for those that require assistance as well
In addition, the UCSF psychiatric Langley Porter Psychiatric Hospital provides excellent inpatient care, partial hospitalization, and outpatient care.
I hope this answers your questions and gives you some guidance on this issue. Hopefully your friend's daughter will respond positively to the treatment.
