Child & Adolescent Services

Child & Adolescent Services

Sometimes, children and teens require extra help to resolve behavioral issues or address mental health concerns. Pine Grove’s expert staff has crafted a treatment program tailored to the unique needs of our youngest patients.

Inpatient Child & Adolescent Services

Young people may need a little extra help to grow up straight and strong. The Pine Grove Child and Adolescent Unit is a state-of-the-art 30 bed facility that offers inpatient treatment for children and adolescents with psychiatric and substance abuse issues. The treatment programming is specifically designed to treat the younger population, and the 22 acres of landscaped grounds offer a tranquil environment for recovery of children and adolescents. The program also offers classroom support on site to assist with the continuity of studies needed from the patient’s school.

The professional staff includes two child and adolescent psychiatrists, board certified in adult, child, and adolescent psychiatry, and a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. Additionally a clinical therapist, expressive therapists, nurses, and counselors are on staff.

Inpatient treatment is typically offered to those individuals in need of acute care hospitalization.

Outpatient Child & Adolescent Services

Outpatient services are conducted without the need for the child to live on premises, allowing them to receive treatment while still residing in the family home. You can read more about them on our Outpatient Services page.
