Program Overview

Welcome to The Landing at McLean® Hospital

The Landing at McLean® Hospital is a six week dual diagnosis residential treatment program combining intensive and transitional programming for adolescents and young adults through age 19 who are struggling with co-occurring substance use disorder and psychiatric illness such as ADHD, anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder and require extended care.

The program is especially designed for adolescents who are prepared and motivated to attain a more complete level of recovery. It is also helpful to those who would not be ready to step down to partial or outpatient care after two weeks in an acute residential treatment program and would require further residential treatment. An extended length of care helps adolescents consolidate the skills acquired during treatment and integrate this learning for when they return to home life and the community.

The program offers a full range of services, including assessment and consultation, individual therapy, group therapy, skills training, psychoeducation, psychopharmacology and family therapy.

The Landing program encompasses two phases of care:

The initial phase is two weeks long and focuses on stabilizing adolescents who are in acute crisis due to substance abuse and psychiatric issues. Adolescents can be referred to the program from home or any level of care, including inpatient, partial and outpatient.

The transitional phase is two-to-four weeks long and is designed to help adolescents go further in their journey to recovery.
