Children's Programs - CARAT Program

  • The Child and Adolescent Rapid Assessment and Treatment Program (CARAT) is an intensive, extended psychiatric evaluation which offers an alternative to hospitalization or partial hospitalization. Located at the CRC at Germantown, it grew out of the work with children and adolescents that takes place at the CRC. This program identifies patients that it can safely treat on an outpatient basis with the help of interagency collaboration. CARAT staff members follow up with the patient to support the efforts of family/caretakers to maintain the child in their home by providing a variety of clinical treatment approaches including parental support and education, home visits, school visits and office visits.
