Acute Inpatient Psychiatric and Specialty Facilities
The Company’s acute inpatient psychiatric facilities provide care in order to stabilize patients that are either a threat to themselves or to others. The acute setting provides 24-hour observation, daily intervention and monitoring by psychiatrists. The Company's facilities, which offer acute care services, provide evaluation and crisis stabilization of patients with severe psychiatric diagnoses through a medical delivery that incorporates structured and intensive medical and behavioral therapies with 24-hour monitoring by a psychiatrist, psychiatric trained nurses, therapists and other direct care staff. As of December 31, 2013, the Company operated 35 facilities that provided acute care/specialty services in addition to other services. The Company’s specialty facilities provide a continuum of care for adults with addictive disorders and co-occurring mental disorders. Its detoxification, inpatient, partial hospitalization and outpatient treatment programs give patients access to the least restrictive level of care.
Residential Treatment Centers
The Company’s residential treatment centers treat patients with behavioral disorders in a non-hospital setting. The facilities balance therapy activities with social, academic and other activities. The Company provides residential treatment care through a medical model residential treatment facility, which offers intensive, medically driven interventions and individualized treatment regimens designed to deal with moderate to high level patient acuity. Treatment is provided by an interdisciplinary team coordinating psychopharmacological, individual, group and family therapy, along with specialized accredited educational programs in both secure and unlocked environments. As of December 31, 2013, the Company operated 16 facilities that provided residential treatment care, in addition to other services.

Community-based programs are designed to provide therapeutic treatment to children and adolescents who have a clinically defined emotional, psychiatric or chemical dependency disorder while enabling the youth to remain at home and within their community. Community-based programs developed for these age groups provide an array of therapeutic services to children. As of December 31, 2013, the Company operated five facilities that provided community-based services.
