Child and Adolescent Services It is estimated that 1 out of 5 children living in the U.S. experience a behavioral, mental or emotional health disorder. However, with appropriate identification, evaluation, and treatment, children living with these disorders can lead productive lives. Inspira offers a wide range of programs for children and adolescents across southern New Jersey. Our team provides the highest quality care to patients and their families through individualized treatment plans. Inpatient Program for Children and Adolescents Available in Bridgeton Our Bridgeton facility provides the region with an advanced Children’s Crisis Intervention Program for complete inpatient evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment for youth (ages 5 to 17) who are in need of immediate treatment. The newly renovated 14-bed unit offers group and individual therapy as well as around-the-clock nursing care. Child and Adolescent Intermediate Inpatient Program Available in Bridgeton Our Children’s Intermediate Inpatient Program (ages 5 to 17) offers a complete evaluation and treatment option for children who require longer-term hospitalization. Inspira’s 12-bed intermediate care unit in Bridgeton is the area’s only experienced long term psychiatric treatment center for inpatient care of this age group. The average length of stay is between 4 to 12 weeks. Therapeutic Nursery, Child and Adolescent Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Programs Available in Bridgeton Inspira’s Child and Adolescent Partial Hospitalization (ages 6 to 17) and Intensive Outpatient Programs (ages 11 to 17) in Bridgeton help youth to find better pathways to healthy development. The partial hospitalization program provides full treatment including individual, group and family counseling as well as psychiatric assessment. We also offer a new Therapeutic Nursery Program (ages 3 to 5) to help children early on who struggle with behavioral disorders. We collaborate with all key stakeholders in the child’s life to establish individualized treatment goals. Children’s Behavioral Health Center Available in Woodbury Inspira Medical Center Woodbury Children’s Behavioral Health Center (ages 5 to 12) provides services similar to the intensity and scope of inpatient treatment, but with significantly less disruption to the lives of children and their families. The program follows an acute short-term model of intensive treatment targeted for 2 to 4 weeks. Adolescent Partial Hospital Program Available in Woodbury Our Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program (ages 13 to 17) at Inspira Medical Center Woodbury offers comprehensive treatment for teens who suffer from a wide range of behavioral health disorders. The newly constructed unit provides a warm and inspiring environment in which patients receive individual, group and family counseling, as well as classroom education, facilitated by a team of staff, teachers, a therapist and psychiatrist. The duration of the treatment program ranges between 2 to 6 weeks. Child Partial Hospitalization Program Available in Elmer Inspira’s Child Partial Hospitalization Program in Elmer, “A Step Ahead,” is designed to help children (ages 6 to 12) who are in need of more intensive treatment than traditional outpatient therapy provides. Built within a classroom setting, the program provides each child with individual, group and family counseling, as well as psychiatric assessment for a range of behavioral health issues. In many cases, partial hospitalization can prevent the need for inpatient treatment.
