Respite Program

The Respite Program, located on our Towson campus, is a 30-day residential program for adolescents who do not meet the clinical criteria for inpatient psychiatric hospitalization, but have been recommended for a residential treatment center (RTC), and have been unable to access that resource quickly enough. While residing in our Respite Program, adolescents receive an appropriate education placement, which is usually The Mann Residential School, as well as a full range of psychiatric, medical, therapeutic, and milieu services. Our Respite Program can extend the treatment process of a recent hospitalization for patients who are not yet able to return to the community.
