Authorities are investigating the death of a teenager who was reported to be unresponsive and not breathing at a behavioral treatment center in Northern Virginia.
Officials responded at 3:37 p.m. Sunday to a call at North Spring Behavioral Healthcare on Victory Lane in Leesburg, Va., according to Kraig Troxell, a spokesman for the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
A spokesman for the facility could not be reached for comment.
The teenager was taken to a hospital where he later died. Troxell did not provide the youth's exact age or other details, citing the ongoing investigation. The cause of death is pending the results of an autopsy.
A person can be admitted to North Spring Behavioral Healthcare if he or she meets certain criteria for the inpatient acute psychiatric facility, various residential treatment center programs, partial hospitalization or substance abuse intensive outpatient, according to the company's website.
The organization lists its goal as providing "services that will enable the individual to return to a healthy, productive role within his or her family, school, work and community as quickly as possible, utilizing the least restrictive means of treatment while collaborating with community resources and support systems."
