Child Study & Treatment Center Programs

Child Study and Treatment Center provides psychiatric services in a campus setting with separate  cottages designed to serve children, ages 6-12 years (16 beds), and adolescents, ages 12-17 years (31 beds). Patients live in one of 3 cottages determined by age where they have individual bedrooms and a shared day area. Each cottage has its own kitchen and dining room.  A treatment team is identified for each child and his/her family or guardian who are included in regularly scheduled treatment planning. Parents and guardians are strongly encouraged to participate in the care and services provided which in addition to family therapy include Multi-Family Group Therapy - MFGT held twice a month with a special program scheduled quarterly. In addition, the treatment team welcomes participation from the family’s natural supports and community partners to assist the child in developing the skills and support system needed for a child’s ongoing recovery after discharge.
