Children and adolescent programs

Treating children and adolescents with behavioral health issues requires compassionate care that is built around their unique needs. Our children’s treatment team uses family involvement and individualized care to provide treatment for a wide range of medical, psychological, psychosocial and recreational needs. We are committed to helping children and adolescents develop into healthy adults. We offer these child behavioral treatments:

  • Inpatient treatment – Our short-term inpatient treatment program specializes in the recovery of children age 7 to age 17. The program is designed to rapidly identify your child’s key issues and partner with your family to identify treatment strategies. Services are provided by experienced child and adolescent psychiatrists in a safe, child-friendly environment.
  • Partial hospitalization – Our partial hospitalization staff specializes in working with your child if they require less intensive treatments than the inpatient level. Partial hospitalization enables the individuals to attend the program during the weekday and return home for nights and weekends, while continuing to practice some of the skills they are learning.
  • Presbyterian Academy – We offer a private, fully-licensed school located on the campus of our hospital. The school enables children in our inpatient or partial hospitalization programs to continue their studies while receiving treatment. We coordinate closely with your child’s school to ensure that he or she stays current with their studies.
Psychiatric services

In addition to our hospital-based services, we also offer outpatient psychiatric services for children and adults. Services include inpatient and outpatient treatment of anxiety, depression, thought disorders, mood disorders and grief and loss issues. Our vision is to be a place where you can experience hope, compassion, respect, security and clarity during challenging times.
