Child and Adolescent Inpatient Program

The Child and Adolescent Inpatient Program focuses on acute, short-term crisis stabilization for individuals experiencing a psychiatric emergency. The program includes individualized treatment planning with a multi-disciplinary approach, discharge planning and continuity of care with community providers. The program accepts individuals up to age 18 who meet admission criteria.

Behavioral Health Services operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Preceding admission to the Child and Adolescent Inpatient Unit, an assessment is performed to determine the appropriate level of care for each person and their specific needs.

Treatment Structure

Patients will receive individual, group and family interventions as outlined by their individualized treatment plan. During treatment, patients are provided with a thorough psychiatric assessment, medication management, therapeutic interventions and discharge planning services to set them on a course of outpatient services. The behavioral health care team consisting of psychiatrists, social workers and nursing staff work with patients to assist them in learning new coping strategies and enhanced life skills.

Family Participation

The behavioral health care team at Stormont-Vail treats the whole person and recognizes the relationships between patients and their families, friends, peers and the community are intrinsic components to healthy living.
