Child and Adolescent Inpatient Services

You may have wondered how to tell the difference between natural growing pains in a child or teen and behavior that is a sign of serious trouble.

Pine Rest makes it easy to get professional guidance in making these judgments. Simply call our Contact Center. Our clinicians are experienced in identifying warning signs and assessing a child’s situation. They can make a preliminary assessment over the phone and, if necessary, make referrals to Pine Rest or other agencies.

If, after a personal visit, you and Pine Rest doctors agree that treatment is necessary, we will design a program for each child’s individual needs that least disrupts your regular schedules and routines.

The unit focuses on brief crisis stabilization in an environment that provides safety and therapeutic interventions. Average length of stay is three to seven days. Regular contact is made with families and outside providers to assist in the treatment of your child. Aftercare plans are designed to continue the healing process. You can expect to be partnered with a collaborative multidisciplinary team to develop a treatment plan that meets your individual needs.

We excel at every kind of care and counseling a young person could need. We also emphasize family involvement and make every effort to schedule family counseling sessions conveniently.
