Abstract

A unit-wide behavioral program for inpatient adolescents was developed and implemented on a coeducational residential unit for six months. Significant clinical reductions were achieved in broken windows, emergency restraint usage, PRNs, medication dosages and the percent of clients receiving psychotropic medications. These reductions continued during the program's maintenance phase. Factors are discussed that appeared to have contributed to the program's success.
