When your child needs mental health treatment, Belmont Pines Hospital offers a Partial Hospitalization Day Treatment program to provide support and structure. Families can find the program helpful when a child or teen’s behavioral issues are too difficult to manage in a routine counseling session. This program can help with the transition from inpatient to outpatient treatment making a smooth return to home and school environments and minimizing the need for future hospitalizations.
Partial Hospitalization Day Treatment program offers intensive evaluation, diagnosis and mental health treatment for many different mental health disorders. School-age children and adolescents are treated in separate age groups by professionals who specialize in trauma-informed care. Families are encouraged to work with their child’s school to obtain homework.
Certified teachers can help patients complete schoolwork while participating in treatment. Our goal is to provide structured treatment in a less restrictive environment so that youth can improve functioning and their quality of life.
Partial Hospitalization Day Treatment program activities include:
The multidisciplinary treatment team consists of licensed therapists, bachelor group specialists, registered nurses, qualified mental health specialists and a child psychiatrist. The team keeps track of the patient’s progress, determines the length-of-stay and recommends an appropriate aftercare plan. The psychiatrist supervises treatment that may include medication management if necessary. Our goal is to ensure high-quality services by coordinating treatment with the family and community professionals.
