Adolescent Female Crisis Stabilization Inpatient Unit

The Adolescent Female Crisis Stabilization Unit at Sheppard Pratt’s Towson hospital is a safe and secure 20-bed inpatient unit specially designed for adolescent females ages 12 through 17.

Our focus is on safety and crisis stabilization; teenage girls generally come here when they are struggling or experiencing a crisis at home, in the community, or at school, and are dangerous to themselves or others. We treat teenage girls with a variety of behavioral challenges and diagnoses; many have depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia spectrum disorders, personality disorders, oppositional defiant disorder, or first-break psychosis; some also experience problems with substance use.
