ADOLESCENT CARE

A structured and nurturing environment that focuses on the needs of each child.

 The Brunswick Hospital adolescent program provides a highly personalized treatment environment that is focused on the needs of adolescents. We cater to adolescents ages 12-17. Our safe, structured and nurturing environment enables the treatment team to provide adolescents with the clinical and supportive services needed to begin recovery. Our goal-oriented treatment plan is designed to engage patients, decrease symptoms, and achieve developmental milestones enabling adolescents to live fulfilling and productive lives while living with mental illness.
A comprehensive treatment plan that encompasses the clinical, social and cultural needs of adolescents.
 
Brunswick Hospital Center uses a multidisciplinary, team-based approach that addresses the psychiatric and medical needs of the adolescent and the psychological well-being of the family. Our focus is on safety and crisis stabilization; adolescents generally come here when they are struggling or experiencing a crisis at home or in the community or at school and are dangerous to themselves or others. 

We understand the complex needs of adolescents and strive to provide an all-inclusive treatment plan that emphasizes family participation in both diagnostic and therapeutic services. Our milieu offers peace of mind for parents and the unit is highly monitored 24 hours a day.

We offer a comprehensive psychiatric assessment by a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist, physical exam by a pediatrician, medication management, psychosocial assessment, treatment plan and discharge planning.

The adolescent program ensures that patients are able to meet their educational requirements through classes led on-site by certified educational professionals. When needed, feedback is provided to the primary school district with recommendations.

Patients are encouraged to participate in the therapeutic rehabilitation program. The adolescent program provides a feedback level system wherein the adolescents are encouraged to attain privileges without any negative or coercive consequence.
