Inpatient Services

We accept children and adolescents meeting admissions criteria seven days a week, 365 days a year, upon completion of a referral. Patients in this age group can be family/legal guardian, emergency room, or doctor/therapist referred. To discuss or refer inpatient admissions to either our Towson or Ellicott City campus, please call 410-938-3800.

Our child and adolescent inpatient psychiatric services provide intense therapeutic assessment, intervention, and treatment to stabilize those in crisis. Inpatient treatment is the most intensive level of care, and is meant for those patients whose mental condition requires admission to a hospital, where they can be monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our child and adolescent services are further broken down by age, so that our child unit admits children between four and 12 years of age, and our adolescent units, which are gender-specific, admit patients ages 13 to 18. This way, patients within these age groups are placed with others at a similar point in their lives, so that they feel comfortable in their environment.
