Behavioral Health Treatment Center & Clinic in North Mississippi

Millcreek of Pontotoc Treatment Center is a residential behavioral health clinic for children, teens, and young adults in northern Mississippi. Our dedicated, experienced staff provides individualized treatment to help young people lead healthier, more productive lives.

Children and adolescents face many trials and challenges as they grow. All children will inevitably go through periods of time where they misbehave and act out in a negative manner. However, when their behavior and overall emotional well-being are significantly disturbed, it is possible that they could be suffering from a behavioral health disorder. These disorders can cause a monumental amount of strife in a child or adolescent’s life, resulting in detrimental consequences on his or her present life, as well as on his or her future.

When left untreated, the long-term effects of the behaviors that are characteristic of these disorders and conditions can bring about negative consequences. Children and adolescents struggling with behavior issues tend to act out repeatedly in school, often leading to disciplinary action, sometimes involving suspension or even expulsion. Additionally, many of these children will repeatedly skip class, leading to chronic truancy and the disciplinary consequences of that as well. Furthermore, children and adolescents with behavioral issues often find that they struggle to perform adequately in their schoolwork, causing them to fall behind academically due to being unable to concentrate on the tasks that they are assigned. Such failures can ultimately result in lowered feelings of self-worth, while also negatively impacting their feelings.
