Child and Adolescent Programs

  •  
    Belmont has the only full scale crisis response center for children and adolescents in the Philadelphia region able to handle 24-hour emergencies.

    The comprehensive child and adolescent programs at Belmont are dedicated to children ages 5 to 12 and adolescents ages 13 to 17 who are in crisis. We offer a safe and secure setting where young patients and their families can work to resolve their issues and the problems causing stress.

    Safe Inpatient Units that Provide Time and Space for Play and Relaxation

    • Children’s Activities, including meals, playtime, therapy and medical services are self-contained in one private area of the facility. We also offer an enclosed, outdoor play area.
    • Adolescent Activities allow for relaxation in spacious double rooms and lounges with TVs, along with activity rooms and the latest video gaming software.

    Our caring, expert staff provides specialized treatment to children and adolescents with a wide range of psychiatric difficulties, including:

    Treatment Plans Tailored to Fit a Child’s Needs

    After an interdisciplinary assessment, a comprehensive plan is individually tailored to meet each child or adolescent’s clinical and developmental needs.

    All treatments focus on the complex interaction of biological, psychological and social factors.

    Family First

    Since many young patients’ problems can be outgrowths of family issues, the involvement of parents, siblings, grandparents and other family members is essential to developing effective solutions.

    Families are involved in their child’s treatment from step one, as they are often responsible for making the call for help. Belmont’s team will consult the family first – no matter what therapy or medication option is suggested.
