This is a two-unit, 32-bed program for adolescents. The child division of the Department of Mental Health is the sole referrer to this program, and most referrals are made for youth who are on acute psychiatric units and who are unable to be stepped down to less restrictive environments. These units are designed to provide long-term hospitalization services to adolescents whose clinical condition requires the utmost structure, psychiatric management, medical monitoring and specialized educational approaches. Patients also receive family therapy. While discharge plans could include returning home, most patients are referred to residential programming.
