Adolescent Acute Residential Treatment (ART) Program


The Adolescent Acute Residential Treatment (ART) Program focuses on treating teenagers ages 13 to 19 who are struggling with psychiatric diagnoses such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. With a length of stay of 10 to 14 days, we also offer a specialty track for those whose illness is complicated by a co-occurring drug or alcohol abuse.

For more information or to make a referral to the Adolescent ART, please contact our admissions coordinator:

Phone: 617.855.2800 (Belmont); 774.419.1100 (McLean SouthEast)

Prospective patients and families seeking acute residential care in Belmont should fill out the Belmont Adolescent ART Referral Form. Residential treatment at McLean SouthEast doesn’t require a referral form. For those seeking structured day care in Middleborough, please fill out the McLean SouthEast Adolescent Partial Hospital Program Referral Form. Once the appropriate form is returned to the program, we can help determine if the Adolescent ART or Adolescent Partial Hospital is an appropriate option.


We understand that navigating the insurance system can be challenging, which is why we assist prospective patients to help determine eligibility. We welcome your questions and concerns and have a dedicated staff to help you.
