Pediatric Behavioral Healthcare Program

Parkridge Valley Child and Adolescent campus exclusively treats children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral health problems. With separate and distinct programs for each age group, our individualized care plans make safety and crisis stabilization top priorities. Our acute children’s program treats patients from 5 to 12 years old. The acute adolescent program treats teenagers from 13 to 18 years old.

We collaborate with outpatient treatment providers and emphasize patient and family education to help everyone involved better understand emotional health issues and symptom management. Our board certified child and adolescent psychiatrists and staff members consider family involvement a critical component for a young person's successful recovery. Because our board certified child and adolescent psychiatrists, therapists and specialists are drawn from a variety of medical disciplines centered on helping children and teenagers, we are able to provide extensive services, such as:

  • Activities therapy
  • Behavior modification
  • Family discharge planning sessions
  • Group therapy
  • Medication management
  • Supportive medical care
