Youth Inpatient Services
In some situations, inpatient evaluation and treatment is the best setting for recovery. Our Youth Inpatient Team sees youth ages 8 – 17 who are experiencing serious emotional and acute behavioral disturbances. Treatment offers family-centered, collaborative care assisting youth and their families in building skills to help them thrive on return to their home and community environment. With 10 beds for children and adolescents, the Youth Inpatient Unit serves young people from across the state (including Kitsap County) with a wide variety of clinical symptoms.
Admissions to the Youth Inpatient Unit can be made on a voluntary or involuntary basis depending on the needs of the client and family, and the youth’s individual presentation. After a screening process by a Designated Crisis Responder to determine if admission criteria is met, clients may be placed in our youth inpatient facility. The Designated Crisis Response Team may be reached at 360-373-3425 if you or someone you care about may be in need of inpatient evaluation and treatment services.
Visitor Hours for the Youth Inpatient Unit are:
Monday – Friday 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
