What you can expect:
Before admission to any of the Children programs, patients receive a comprehensive assessment of their mental, physical, and spiritual needs to determine the most appropriate level of care. The treatment team, led by the attending psychiatrist, develops an individual treatment plan for each patient and meets regularly to review each patient’s progress and to update treatment goals. Family members are also invited to participate in treatment team and family sessions.
The length of stay varies based on the individual needs of the patient. Every patient that is admitted into one of our programs has an individualized treatment plan. Length of stay is determined by a multidisciplinary team that includes the physician and the patient.
Levels of Care
Middle School Program
The Brook Hospital Dupont offers middle school inpatient program for ages 11-13. This program treats pre-adolescents who are experiencing psychiatric illness/emotional problems, drug and alcohol issues. This unit offers acute and extended care programming.
Treatment & Discharge Planning
The Brook Hospitals recognize that recovery and healing is a lifelong process and therefore discharge planning begins upon admission. The treatment team works closely with each patient to set realistic goals for continuing care following treatment and makes available information or referral for further services as necessary.
