Children’s Programs

Children’s Inpatient Programs

Crescent Pines’ Child Acute Care Program services children ages 4 – 12 is designed to provide stabilization for a child in severe distress or exhibiting dangerous behavior.

Children receive structured programming in a therapeutic environment equipped to handle individuals in crisis. Those seeking care typically have been experiencing behavioral disturbances and an inability to function appropriately at home, school or elsewhere. Treatment plans keep the family and/or support system involved while concentrating on the individual’s presenting problems so they can gain the coping skills necessary for a successful discharge.

Treatment primarily consists of:

  • Family therapies which give the patient and family an opportunity to discuss issues related to the patient’s crisis state and attempt to initiate a behavior change.
  • Group therapies such as play therapy and behavior modification, which help the individual bring about change and teach socialization and interaction skills.

Children’s Outpatient Programs

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
