The Horsham Clinic provides inpatient hospital treatment for children and adolescents on four distinct units. The Children’s Unit specifically meets the needs of children as young as 4 and through age 9. The Adolescent 1 Unit treats young teens between the ages of 10 through 13. The Adolescent 2 and 3 Units treat teenagers between the ages of 14 through 18 (as long as they are still in high school). Children and adolescents admitted to these units are unable to be safely maintained in the home or school environment.
At Horsham, we realize that the childhood and teenage years can be quite overwhelming due to many factors such as, emotional and physical changes, difficulties at home, in school, and in relationships. Our goal is to help our youngsters and their families fully understand the illness or problems at hand, develop effective coping skills, and build self-esteem so they can return home and back to school. At Horsham, we encourage our children and adolescents to develop resiliency skills. Resiliency will help them endure loss, chronic stress, traumatic events, and other challenges they will encounter on their road to recovery after they are discharged.
