What Is Inpatient Treatment?
Behavioral health and psychiatric inpatient treatment for children
Inpatient treatment provides 24/7 supervision. It is our most acute level of care for children. It is short-term in nature, as the goal is to stabilize adolescent patients who are in crisis. Upon completion of inpatient treatment, many clients step down to a level of care that is less acute.
