Youth Inpatient Services
The Child and Adolescent Inpatient Services offer comprehensive diagnostic evaluations and treatment of children and adolescents. To help children, we need to understand them and the environments in which they live. Our goal is to build on their strengths, talents, and abilities and to not focus solely on their difficulties. This allows us to work towards stabilizing children, better understand their needs and give them and their families the best chance at success when they leave our care.
