Del Amo Behavioral Health System Child and Adolescent Inpatient Treatment Program

We provide crisis stabilization with 24-hour supervision. While in treatment, each patient receives an individualized mental health treatment plan that is evaluated on a regular basis by members of the multidisciplinary treatment team directed by their psychiatrist.

Program features include:

  • Individual treatment plans
  • Daily psychotherapy groups
  • Behavioral management
  • Study hall
  • Communication, socialization and anger management groups
  • Recreation therapy
  • Case management
  • Discharge planning
  • Substance abuse counseling

Del Amo believes the best guarantee for our patients’ success is effective discharge planning that will meet each individual’s needs. Upon discharge, each patient receives a written recommendation plan for aftercare. To help our patients continue toward their goals after treatment, we begin planning discharge at the time of admission. Setting goals is vital to our patients’ healing journey.
