Child and Adolescent Inpatient Programs

Our acute inpatient psychiatric treatment program provides crisis stabilization for children and adolescents who may benefit from consistent care in a secure therapeutic environment. Some of the behaviors we address include depression, anxiety, mood disorders, or behavioral issues stemming from stress, trauma or abuse.

Children and adolescents in inpatient hospitalization at Clarion Psychiatric Center are treated in separate, secure units. Youth are kept separate from adult patients at all times. Our facility also includes a school, an outdoor courtyard and a full-service gymnasium.

Our treatment program includes:

  • Psychiatric evaluation by a board-certified psychiatrist
  • Psychoeducational groups (medication education, illness education, anger management, coping skills, etc.)
  • Psychosocial assessment
  • Nursing assessment
  • Medical history and physical exam
  • Dietary consults
  • Individual, family and group therapy
  • Academic instruction and education assessment
  • Continuing care planning
  • Psychopharmacology

Often, children and adolescents require adjunctive therapies or other modalities to most effectively communicate and express themselves. Our Allied Therapy Program provides patients with optional avenues for expression and fosters group interaction. Art, movement, recreation & music treatment groups are offered 7 days a week.
