Middle school age individuals face the difficult challenge of being stuck between childhood and adolescence. It is a difficult stage - even in normal circumstances. Other challenges that middle schoolers sometimes face include: unhealthy influences in their environment, depression, addiction, psychiatric illness, co-existing disorders, harmful family dynamics and emotional problems, especially those associated with puberty. These challenges can result in acting-out behaviors in the home, school or community.
The Brook at Dupont offers a highly structured, inpatient program that utilizes a multidisciplinary team approach for treating middle schoolers who are experiencing psychiatric illnesses and/or emotional problems. Specific issues also include: drug, alcohol, bullying, cyber-bullying, and exposure to pornography and violence in media and video games. The inpatient program is designed to provide middle schoolers with the highest level of direct-patient care possible including: physical, social, spiritual, medical and psychotherapeutic interventions and on-site classrooms.
