Children

The Brook Hospital – Dupont offers highly structured Children Programs that utilize a multidisciplinary team approach for treating children (ages 3-12) who are experiencing problems with psychiatric illnesses and/or emotional problems. The inpatient program is designed to provide the highest level of direct patient care that is possible, which includes physical, social, spiritual, medical and psychotherapeutic treatment interventions. The State requires all school age patients to continue their education while in treatment. Jefferson County Public Schools provides this service for our patients in our on-site classrooms. Following completion of the inpatient program, an appropriate referral is then made for the patient to continue treatment in the least restrictive level of care possible (i.e., partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, outpatient, aftercare program). The level of care recommended is determined by the individual needs of the patient.

Levels of Care


  • Psychiatric Inpatient
  • Extended Care
  • Psychiatric Partial Hospitalization
  • Psychiatric Intensive Outpatient

Treatment & Discharge Planning


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 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.
