Our Adolescent Day Hospital, located on our Towson campus, is a clinically-intensive day program for adolescents between the ages of 13 and 18 (as long as the 18-year-old is enrolled in high school) with serious psychiatric problems. This day hospital provides the structure and intensity of an inpatient program to patients who do not require 24-hour observation and treatment.

  • Evaluation/assessment 
  • Medication management 
  • Therapeutic groups 
  • Recreational activities 
  • Family meetings
