Child and Adolescent Day Hospital

The Child and Adolescent Day Hospital, also know as partial hospitalization, serves as a 'step-up' program for patients in outpatient programs who need more intensive treatment and as a 'step-down' program for patients on inpatient units who are transitioning back to outpatient care. Youngsters arrive in the morning and spend the day involved in individual and group therapeutic activities, attend school on site, and then return home each afternoon.

The service is designed for youth between the ages of 5 to 17 and focuses on combining individual therapy, family therapy, behavioral interventions, occupational therapy, medication management, school advocacy, and systems coordination to facilitate keeping the child at home, in school, and in regular outpatient treatment.

Intensive aftercare planning is a core component of the program and family participation is a critical element. Staff work with youngsters and families to optimize a transition back home.

For admissions and referrals: Call Ms. Carie Fletcher, LCSW-C at 410-955-5335
