Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Children and Adolescent Psychiatry

Child/Adolescent Inpatient Treatment

Two specialized units, one for children and one for adolescents, provide comprehensive evaluations and treatment in a structured setting.

Treatment includes milieu, individual, group and family therapy and medication, if necessary. Discharge planning is done in cooperation with parents and involved agencies. A psychiatric multi-disciplinary team approach is used and includes psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, educators and recreational and expressive therapists. Consultation with pediatricians is available, as needed. During their stay, children attend school located in the building to minimize any disruption in their education. Both units have access to indoor and outdoor recreational facilities.
