Treatment in the hospital is a full day experience for your loved one.  They participate in many different forms of group programming that is important to their care throughout the course of each day.  It is so helpful to the children and adolescents in the hospital to have visitors.  It is equally important for them to attend groups and sessions with as little disruption to their care as possible.  We encourage you to visit for short periods of time as many days of the week as you can.  It may be helpful to consult with the treatment team around the time of day that will work best for each individual patient to have visitors.

Treatment Goals

The inpatient hospital program provides active and intensive therapeutic services in a coordinated and structured environment. This is an acute care setting focused on the stabilization a child and/or adolescents psychiatric needs related to the crisis which preceded their need for inpatient hospitalization.

Our team works together with an interdisciplinary treatment plan focused on each patients presenting needs. We will also identify the goals of treatment,, identify discharge recommendations, and create a discharge plan for an average length of stay between 7-10 days.
