If you’re facing an acute emotional problem that needs immediate attention, Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital offers short-term inpatient care in our Adolescent Psychiatric Unit. This secure hospital psychiatric unit provides immediate help to people who pose a risk to themselves or others, and those who are unable to care for themselves.
Personalized Treatment: A Team Approach
The Adolescent Psychiatric Unit provides you personalized care from psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses and licensed therapists on staff at Central DuPage Hospital (CDH). These specialists work closely together to address acute problems and develop goals that will lead to a successful recovery plan. Therapists on the Adolescent Psychiatric Unit coordinate care and serve as the primary contact for you and your family.
A Full Circle of Care and Support
Inpatient treatment provides patients with the resources to move toward wellness, including individual, family and group therapy. Patients will move to treatment in the partial hospital program to continue recovery.
Confidential and Compassionate
Patient dignity and confidentiality are a priority at Northwestern Medicine, and our staff is committed to treating you with respect and protecting your privacy.
Admission to the Adolescent Psychiatric Unit is by direct psychiatrist referral or through assessment in the Emergency Department.
