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.
